CSS Share New Single “Hits Me Like A Rock”

(Feat. Bobby Gillespie) Off Upcoming New Album

Download it for Free from
“Hits Me Like A Rock” 
is the first single to be taken from CSS’s forthcoming new album La Liberación and features guest vocals from Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie.  The full-length album, the band’s third, is a true melding of their debut’s riotous anarchy and their sophomore album Donkey’s grungy maturity. This single is bubbling over with some serious pop energy, something the band have always had in bucketloads but now feel newly empowered to express fully and freely.
Lovefoxxx attributes their new zest for songwriting to being relaxed and at home, explaining  “Being in São Paulo helped a whole lot. I don’t like being a foreigner for too long. I was in love with my life. Feeling energetic. I was feeling inspired and happy.”
Regarding the new single, Lovefoxxx elaborates “ ‘Hits Me Like A Rock’ is a song about another song.  It’s about the power of music to date our lives.
You know when you listen to a song over and over again over a certain period of time and later, for a while, you simply forget that song ever existed…
But then when “shuffle” choose to use it’s power and bring back that song to you, you listen to it again and everything you’ve felt hits you ever so strong and the music becomes physical.”
The full “Hits Me Like A Rock” single comes complete with remixes from Dillon Francis and Mad Decent’s digital dance purveyors Depressed Buttons.
Overall, LaLiberaciónfinds the band at the peak of their powers, pushing past everything that has come before into an exciting new future.
“I think it’s a celebration of our friendship,” says Lovefoxxx. “I think that this album has a ‘finding your gang’ feel.”
