Tropical House | KOLAJ Are About To “Hitchhike” Their Way Onto The Radio

Posted by on October 28, 2016


Crossing over into mainstream radio is a tricky endeavor for dance acts. Balancing different elements to make a track accessible but not cheesy takes skill and serious attention to detail, and West duo band, KOLAJ, are proving they are on the cusp of making the transition. With a resume that includes over 15 million Spotify streams, work with Kaskade, and a collaboration with K-Pop superstar Eric Nam, Teesa Houston and Mighty Mike McGarity continue to pump their tropically-infused brand of indie rock to the masses.

Today, KOLAJ release their new single “Hitchhike.” Allowing Houston’s warm vocals and acoustic strums to open the track up, the band swell the tracks tension to a guitar-wailing drop that evokes images of driving down the PCH in the midst of summer. With another impressive output on their resume, KOLAJ are surely about to transition from promising newcomers to pop favorites. You can stream “Hitchhike” below and purchase it here.
