"In reality, Hovercar’s music is the kind of stuff that can define someone’s coming-of-age."

-Ray Roa, Creative Loafing 2023


Heavily influenced by 90’s music and aesthetics, Hovercar has a sound that is equal parts aggression and nuance. Their full-length debut album, Hovercar, was released on December 28, 2021. After heavily performing throughout the local Tampa Bay scene in 2022, the duo went into the studio at Candor Recording in Tampa, Florida to make what would be their defining album. Killing Jar was released July 14, 2023 and is a seven-song statement following a year of life-changing events for both drummer Alton Plemmons and singer/guitarist Nikki Raven. Every song on Killing Jar calls out to each other like signals thorugh space and wash over each other like waves. Ray Roa in Creative Loafing wrote that Killing Jar "could only be produced by kids who sat on the school bus with a Discman or iPod in their lap." Shortly after the recording sessions for their latest album, they received the opportunity to open a sold-out show for the band Grouplove local radio station 97x UnderPlay! and also headlined a show for GRRRL's Night Tampa.
