Just imagine, for a moment, this perfect travel situation: As you settle into the comfiest aisle seat with the most leg room on the plane and crack open a frosty beverage, you slide on some headphones and enjoy the sweetness of Hindershot's "Rain Fare." Well, imagine no longer: For the entire month of February, the Hindershot track will be featured on the Sonicbids + Noise Pop Indie Showcase channel on select Delta Airlines flights.
Applying through Sonicbids, all tracks were considered by Noise Pop Records and then filtered on to the airline for playlist consideration. "We signed up for Sonicbids a few months ago and were kinda intrigued by the whole process," says Hindershot's Stuart Confer.
The best part? You don't have to book a flight to hear the jangly-pop gem, as it is now available for free download. If you like what you hear, check out Hindershot's Replacements-channeled pleaseantry tonight at the hi-dive, when they open for Airwaves.
