‘Flowers Bloom’ by High Highs

Last week New York based duo High Highs posted this great new song online. The band is made up of Jack Milas and Oli Chang, who both originally come from Australia. I came across them purely by accident a few months ago when I stumbled across an incredible cover they recorded of Wild Nothing’s Live In Dreams. I instantly fell in love with their sound and have been listening to them on an almost weekly bases ever since. Their sound is stark but beautiful, solemn yet uplifting; it’s the kind of music that never seems intrusive but still grabs your attention. Currently they’re working on their debut album and it sounds like it’s coming quite close to completion. To hear more from the band (including that excellent Wild Nothing cover) head over to their website.
