The Hard To Get (THTG) is the musical duo of Melissa Kaplan (guitar/lead vocals) and Tim Lee (drums/backup vocals). Formed in Los Angeles in 2006 as an indie rock outfit in the spirit of The Pixies and Sleater-Kinney, the band covered every venue from Echo Park to Venice. Their debut, self-released 2008 album, "This Is The New Business Plan," captured the band's catchy, riff-driven songs while maintaining the hard, fast and electric feeling of their live shows. Their second EP, "Looking Good," shows off the group's eclectic side with a mix of more layers and even a quick venture into samba rock. Usually covering multiple genres in one set, the duo surprises an often one-trick pony LA rock scene with a passionate multi-layered sound and a revolving cast of guest players. Most THTG songs share a common thread of playful boy-girl harmonies, thoughtful lead and rhythm guitar progressions, and heartfelt melodic ideas.

    I get curious when I listen to your music, What's comin' round the corner? Centerpiece has great, somewhat neurotic guitars.
