Boy Hits Car was started in 1993 with a simple idea—to write and perform ‘passionately heavy music’ infused with a world beat/middle eastern flavor. Based out of northwest Los Angeles, the band spent the first few years perfecting their sound while playing both local and regional shows. In 1995, a Baltimore based independent label booked Boy Hits Car on their first national tour—six weeks straight performing nearly every night—an experience that proved challenging yet absolutely addictive. During this time the band decided that no matter what the cost, they would try to make a lifestyle out of performing their music---music they eventually dubbed ‘Lovecore’. BHC continued to write, record and tour until 1997 when they landed a deal with a Texas based independent label. They recorded their first full length CD---‘My Animal’ which was released and distributed in 1998 through NMG music. Unfortunately after only a few weeks, they lost their distribution deal but the band pressed on undeterred. Armed with a strong new record and the help of new management (BAM) and their faithful lawyer Ian Montone, Boy Hits Car finally found themselves in a position of doing multiple showcases on both coasts and being wined & dined by some of the biggest record labels around (Warner Bros.,Cherry/Universal, Dreamworks, Arista), they eventually signed with Wind-Up Records.
