Hit Like A Girl, the indie-punk project led by Montclair, NJ's Nicolle Maroulis, have announced their third album, Heart Racer, due out April 2 via Refresh Records (pre-order).

Heart Racer was written in the aftermath of a "life-altering panic attack" that Maroulis experienced in 2019, which is said to have influenced the direction of these songs, and it features some cool guest appearances: Bartees Strange, Kiley Lotz of Petal, Jer Berkin of The Sonder Bombs, and Jacob Blizard of Lucy Dacus' band. It was engineered by Alex Melendez at The Headroom in Philly and mixed/mastered by Doug Gallo.

The first single is "Boardwalk," a catchy, bright, and crunchy tune, accompanied by an animated music video crafted by Jez Pennington, which features the group goofing off at a carnival. Watch it below.
