“The Hugs have been occupying their own little corner of the Portland music scene for six years now, cranking out garage pop with an ear for arenas. You could even say it’s underappreciated by some. Lead Hug Danny Delegato has forged ahead through personnel changes, kicking out happy pop for sad souls. And they keep getting better. The band’s latest LP, Love Led You, Here is jam-packed with exuberant, full-bodied pop with hooks aplenty and a sparkly sheen. It’s easily the Hugs’ best work to date, and should turn the spotlight on this…” READ MORE

This is a very special song that we wrote while recording “Love Led You Here” titled “Pointless Grudge”.
The lyrics are about someone stealing your friend who has bad intentions. It’s deep, to say the least. & meaningful.
It didn’t really fit the vibe for the full length so we made it a b-side. We have 1 more special b-side coming soon!
”Pointless Grudge” Lyrics:
You took my friend
Swept him up and away You might win But not today Well, I will try friend Or I will just die I won't lie You are so cold, mistimed

“The Hugs are showing off their spacey side with the new single off their forthcoming record, titled “Magnify.” Layers of psychedelic tones, driving rhythms and a bright lead guitar blend together to showcase the next step in the evolution of these local garage-pop favorites. Listen to the song (available for download on July 16th) below and get ready for the new album, ‘Love Led You Here’, out July 30th.”
- Benjamin Toledo (Deli Magazine)
“The Hugs have a new single: “Magnify” is from their forthcoming album Love Led You Here. It’s a tumbling, jumping track with echoes of shoegaze and perhaps even some U2 in the guitar echo, and it displays the Portland band at their most euphoric. Love Led You Here is 12 new songs from the band, now a trio, and comes out July 30.”
