Listening to High Highs is like dreaming about beautiful seasides, desert landscapes, freedom, love… After a first Ep released few months ago, favourite Brooklyn-based Australian duo are back with an album ” Open Season” and this delightful and elegant new track: In A Dream.
Last year I’ve got chance and talked with the guys about their music, inspirations and life in this interview: here
Check below their new single and let’s fall into your deepest dreams…
Another perfect (end of) summer track, laying on your deckchair, your feet in the swimming pool, just breathe and enjoy the last sunshine.
Listen and check the gorgeous new High Highs video clip below, with love.
Their first album will come out debut 2013, have a look at the interview that I did few months ago with them HERE.
I wanted to share with you my musical inspirations on this Friday…have all a wonderfull weekend!
From Australia to Brooklyn – I had a crush on a band called HIGH HIGHS few weeks ago and I really can’t stop listening to their delicate and delightful songs since days… So I decided to introduce you our new favourite New York based band, through the short interview below! Hope you will like my early Christmas gift!
Hi guys, to start off let’s talk about you, who are High Highs?
Hi! Our band is made up of myself (Jack), Oli and Zach.
What’s your biggest inspiration to create such a delightful music?
Silence. We like sitting down and creating music that comes from a pure place. We’re just aiming to be as direct as possible.
You released a new EP few days ago, could tell us more about it…?
Well, they are some songs we’ve been working on for a while but they are part of a bigger tapestry of songs. I think maybe 2 songs from the EP will be on our album. It’s our first release which is super exciting.
What about the music scene in new york actually? And the music scene in Australia?
They are very different. New York is much busier and its much more outgoing. Last night I saw a guy opening for a friends band, and he had two old school Game Boys plugged in and was making music. You wouldn’t see that in Australia. But Australia is beautiful, and crowds always get into the music much more. I think thats why a lot of international artists love touring there.
If I tell you Paris or Berlin, you think of…? (cities where the blog is based) Did you already performed there?
Oli lived in Berlin for a little while. I think he would say that Berlin makes him think of absolutely incredible dance music. We haven’t performed there or in Paris but we’d love to.
What about your dreams?
This question made me think of a James blake song. Our dream is to make music and we’re lucky enough to be able to do that.
Last questions “or about” but, are you into fashion? do you have a favorite fashion designer?
Absolutely! We were just in London and Oli’s friend Geoffrey owns this awesome company called Antipodium, they make cool stuff. Oli got a great sweater from him while he was there.
I really love A.P.C. Recently a friend told me about Freemans here in New York. Its really expensive but beautiful stuff. They make the best t-shirts too (i think they’re only about $40). Everyone should also check out Oli’s girlfriends jewelry, its super cool . Her name is Ebony Fleur
