Hit Like A Girl bares it all on new song "No More Dysphoria"

October 1, 2019

It’s no question that the world has changed since NJ’s Hit Like A Girl released their first album in 2017. The climate for young non-binary and trans individuals has gotten increasingly grimmer, but at the same time, it’s inspired young community leaders like Nicolle Maroulis (they/them) to find and use their voice like never before. Founded that same year, Nicolle created their own 501(c)3 non-profit No More Dysphoria to assist people going through various gender-related transitions and since, it's provided financial aid and emotional support to countless individuals.

Today Hit Like A Girl releases “No More Dysphoria,” their first new single since 2018’s What Makes Love Last. Appropriately named after the non-profit, the two go hand-in-hand as the track echoes all the same things Nicolle stands for in their music and as an organization.

“My goal here isn’t to be anyone’s trans or non-binary hero, but I do feel like I have a responsibility as an artist with the platform I’ve been given to talk about the hard stuff that might resonate with a specific audience," Nicolle explains. "This song is about my personal experience living as a non-binary person, but I don’t want that to be the only defining part of me."

"Gender is such a wide spectrum; much like my personality, and it is sometimes exhausting to talk about. I’m hoping I can release this song into the world and let it speak for me once and for all.”

Hit Like A Girl initially started as just a solo acoustic project. After spending years supporting their local music community, Nicolle transformed that love into a heavier, more energetic and fully-realized sound with the help of Frederick Pruden (guitar), Joseph Paventa (bass), Marco Caruso (drums), and more recently Liv Battell (drums) and Sawyer Camden (synth/trumpet). Their debut release You Make Sense, released in 2017, uncovered a stirring strength in Maroulis, utilizing the album’s eight tracks as a way to express and inspire vulnerability in anyone who listens.


No More Dysphoria is a queer-run 501(c)3 non-profit organization started with a goal to raise money for transgender and nonbinary individuals to help them financially through major aspects of their transition, including but not limited to hormone therapies, gender-affirming clothing, binders, therapy sessions, and various gender reassignment surgeries. Since it was founded in 2016, No More Dysphoria has provided aid for over 100 individuals through their transitions. You can learn more by visiting www.nomoredysphoria.org.
