Push aside your inhibitions and embrace the gold-sequined, guilty pleasure that is San Francisco’s latest derriere-shakin’ sensation, Hey Willpower. Imperial Teen’s Will Schwartz is seriously exploring his bootilicious side with this exuberant display of lip-glossed shimmy and soul. The band employ not one but two full-time dancers, which gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from their live set. Thus far, Hey Willpower has readied Gravy Train!!!! and LeTigre fans with opening slots on their most recent tours, but now with this four song EP you can get down and enjoy the dance party at home.
