High Highs, High Tension, Highasakite…there are a few High bands in the mix at the moment. But keep High-tails top of mind.
Every Australian has to embark on the Europe backpacking trip. And every Australian has to fall into a whirlwind romance and then get their heart broken on said Europe backpacking trip. It’s basically the ultimate patriotism.
This is why this High-tails song “My Heart” is so relatable. It’s a gorgeous carefree jam about travel and love. Nicholas Griffith, the lead singer (and also the singer of Big White), said this, “We started writing it when I came back from a holiday in Europe, and a lot of the lyrics reference the travel experiences I had. A girl I’d been staying with in Prague made me a paper crane before I left for France, and I was reading “The Catcher In The Rye” while on the road which inspired the line ‘Nobody knows where the animals go to when New York is frozen’.
Hometown: Sydney, Australia.
Upcoming album: Listen out for it in 2016.
Sounds like: Philadelphia Grand Jury.
Say what? Nicholas Griffith really enjoys hummus. Super important to know.
