Indie Pong PREMIERE: Luke Markinson Battles Breakup Blues on New Double-Single

‘Hardcore Miserable’ and ‘Out the Bed’ are about battling insecurity in a relationship and coming to terms with a breakup

Welcome to the Indie Pong premiere of a new double-single from hyperpop newcomer Luke Markinson!

‘Hardcore Miserable’ and ‘Out the Bed’ are about battling insecurity in a relationship and coming to terms with a breakup (despite loving someone very much). Over swelling synths and wild, dive-bombing bass blasts, a la Charli XCX‘s ‘anthems,’ Markinson charts the pain of ending a relationship utilizing glitchy, warped-out production.

The 19-year-old WashU sophomore recently talked to IndiePong about making music out of his literal dorm room closet– check that out here.

LUKE MARKINSON – ‘OUT THE BED’

The double-single comes on the heels of three singles in 2020, including his first, ‘Never Alone.’ Quick to rise in the ranks of a lively hyperpop scene in music right now, the genre juggernaut Charli XCX added ‘Never Alone’ to her official Beats by Dr. Dre playlist on Apple Music. It’s Markinson’s second era, of sorts, after he began by building a follower base on Vine by posting covers and original music (okay Shawn Mendes!).

Aside from Charli baby, Markinson finds his biggest inspiration from the musings of Troye Sivan, The 1975 and underground gay club music.

Follow Luke on Instagram, Twitter and TikTok, and stay tuned to Indie Pong for exclusive new music premieres to come!
