, on Jan 20 via Fool's Gold, and today he premiered "Hula Hoop." Featuring the instructional sass of Jersey Club queen



panting and pouting out lyrics inspired by girls hula hooping at festivals, this hybrid club, horn-blasted smash-in-waiting sounds suitably massive.

To celebrate the imminent release of his EP, plus an international tour, and becasue we're nosey, we made Brenmar answer our dating questionnaire cribbed straight from OkCupid. Thanks Brenmar!
