Coming hot off the back of his last release ‘Asking For A Friend’ (with Marlhy), Hook N Sling now presents the fittingly named ‘Cruel Summer’ – which features the vocal talent of fellow Aussie, DARCI.
With the single delivering a modern reimagining of the much-loved classic of the same name (by UK pop duo, Bananarama), Hook N Sling pays homage to the iconic 80’s influenced sound & delivers a future sure-fire player.
“The idea for ‘Cruel Summer’ first came about when DARCI and I were talking about making a bootleg for our sets. Both being from Australia, this song reminds us of hot summers at the beach & embodies that feeling of being trapped in a sometimes cruel summer.” said Hook N Sling.
Emerging in 2011, Anthony Maniscalco – who’s better known by his stage name Hook N Sling, first introduced himself onto the global stage with ‘Take You Higher’ – which went on to become a true house music anthem. Since then, Platinum-selling singles have followed & Hook N Sling has gone on to work with & remix for the biggest names in the game – incl. Calvin Harris, Halsey, Kygo, Miguel, John Legend, The Chainsmokers, Demi Lovato, Lana Del Rey, Ava Max, and Bazzi.
Also collaborating with A-list artists Sia, Example, Axwell, Galantis & Jason Derulo – fast forward to the present & it’s now the turn of ‘Cruel Summer’ ft. DARCI to take center stage, with the single looking firmly set to light up festival stages and international airwaves.
