San Francisco’s Hey Willpower began as Imperial Teenager bassist Can Schwartz’s homage towards the hip-hop, metropolitan, and dance-pop he was raised with, such as for example L’Trimm and Janet and Michael Jackson’s singles. The initial incarnation from the music group included the Aislers Set’s Amy Linton, but she was as well active with her primary music group to spend lots of time with Hey Willpower. A shared friend presented Schwartz to Tussle’s Tomo Yasuda, as well as the set were soon exercising and documenting furiously. In 2005, their self-titled EP presented their dancefloor-savvy audio; properly, the group’s live present also included a troupe of dancers. The Hundredaire one — a witty tribute to André 3000’s “Millionaire” — found its way to 2007, as do the Dance EP. Afterwards that season, Hey Willpower’s debut record, P.D.A., premiered in European countries; Tomlab released it in the U.S. in early 2008.
