Hi-ker: Answering the Questions that Matter

Originality can be difficult to find in today’s increasingly diverse music industry. It sometimes could seem that every nook and cranny of musical expression may have finally been explored; a quick look to the young Grand Rapids, Michigan, trio Hi-ker will make you reconsider that thought. Adopting a sound most closely aligned with the disjointed stylings of Animal Collective, the synth-pop group explored their sonic abilities on 2016’s “Weird Plastic.” Currently prepping to release their follow-up album “Lippe,” Marquette Radio got a chance to sit down with the guys this past weekend at the 2017 Audiotree Music Festival. Check out the video to learn about their least favorite Tom Hanks movie, their thoughts on the art of sandwich-making and more.
