Overview: "Hopkinson's record sounds like U2 and Crowded House smoked a big doobie together and then rolled out a whole new sound." (Impressionable spaced out myspacer after smoking a doobie).
Australian sensation Hopkinson's album, Strangers To Ourselves, is causing quite a stir. The single “(Take Away) The Drama” topped the American Idol Underground Rock Chart; “Angel (Wanted You To Be There)” was nominated for best alternative song in the LA Music Awards; and an early version of the record won DIY Album Of The Year in Hollywood. Hopkinson’s “dreamy, sophisticated sound” was tabbed by the judges as “a compelling blend of influences that's uniquely Hopkinson.”
And in the run-up to the album’s official release next year (January 26, 2009), the single “Trampoline” has just been nominated for the Hollywood Music Awards 2008 - Best Pop Song & 'Chaos' has been nominated best original song for Film. Artist Site
