Posted by on June 24, 2020

The summer soaked new single “Water Balloons” by HOOFA is an absolute indie pop jam that is filled with fun. Not only is the song title and artist work a play on warm weather and Summer, the song describes a specific water balloon fight:

‘Water Balloons’ depicts a big Water Balloon fight James was involved in when a kid. James lived at the bottom of a hill next to a park and the street he lived on had between 15-20 families of 2 kids each, and there was one summer when everyone was involved “even the parents sometimes. The fight was the top of the hill vs bottom of the hill, and lasted hours. It was a rare fight where no one used the super soakers but was more about strategy, jumping over fences and catching people off guard. As some kids couldn’t get permission to use their parents water tap, the common shout was “I’ll bring the water balloons” if you let someone use your tap to fill up.”

The second release of six new self-produced and self-released singles out this year, ‘Water Balloons’ follows on from their prior single “Alone”, and proves yet again that these up and comers are a group to keep an eye on. Listen to the new single by HOOFA above now! Watch the music video below.
