HOOKED4LIFE: hooked4life"Hooked4life has both, big harmonies and catchy melodies, with a touch of dream rock and brit pop that creates a moody and emotional spell with undeniable pop and indie intensity. Their debut album is filled with radio friendly and melodic anthemic rock, which is unapologetic, and in your face. This album's sound is raw enough to appeal to truly devout indie rock fans, yet its subtle pop essence opens the door to mainstream ears as well."(Jason Olcott, Chunk Magazine, Seattle, WA.)
"Pop rock with edge and emotion...the songwriting is simply there."(Zakk United, 94.5 The Buzz, Houston, TX.)
Professional execution, driving guitars and infectious melodies...
Finally, a rock band for the masses, Houston based hooked4life is a consortium of emotions. From angst to hope, love to despair, their songs reveal a sea of emotions to which fans relate. With their album debut selling at record numbers, and their first single, "Going, Going, Gone" which has cracked the rotation on 94.5 The Buzz, TX., their place in rock and roll is secure.
Glimpses of youthful cynicism are identified with many of the album tracks. Song's like "Going, Going, Gone" and "Standout Memories" tell of love lost and desperation, while tracks like "More than Enough" and the piano melody, " By Candlelight" are both melodic and driving, illustrating a sense of contentment and hopeful expectation.
The dreamy sounds of "Another Place" and "Starlight" give the listener a sense of time and space throughout the compelling arrangements, while the epic sounds of " Glide" and "Unite" fortify anthem rock at it's finest.
hooked4life was formed in 2004 in Houston, Texas. Kevin Langford and Jon Bittick began their careers with bands around southeast Texas, but came together as the two-man acoustic duo, Bad Boyfriend, in early 2004.
