Hi Crime -- Worlds Fair

“Catchy and a favorite at KEXP.” - KEXP

Hi Crime is a Seattle-based indie-pop group that began as a recording project between songwriters Brielle Rutledge and Mitch Etter. The duo met in the summer of 2015 and quickly began work on what would become their first release. The Foreign Hours EP was written, recorded, and mixed entirely in the duo's bedrooms over the fall months while Rutledge finished college, commuting back every few weeks to record. The EP earned attention from KEXP, and other NW media outlets, inspiring the duo to expand to a four-piece and begin performing live. The expanded lineup provided a burst of new energy, propelling the band into work for their debut full-length album, The Kids Still Got It, released on June 29, 2018. Since the album release, Hi Crime has been performing new music and growing its audience with regular live shows across the Pacific Northwest, in addition to occasional touring. Three singles have been released since the LP, “Waves” in July 2019, '“World’s Fair” in October 2020, and ‘Rainy Days & Crooked Sheets” in March 2021. The band’s second LP is currently in production and is slated for release in spring 2023.
