High Highs – In A Dream


No doubt that the title of High Highs “In A Dream” is a hint of what you’ll likely experience when hearing it. This is classic dream pop that parks right next to Wild Nothing. Even Jack Milas’ vocals are noticeably similar to Jack Tatum’s (Check out their cover of “Live In Dreams” on their MySpace site). It’s a beautifully constructed song focused around a lovely slightly-out-of-tune guitar, echoing Beach House, with layers of hazy synths giving the song a dreamlike ambience. It might not be as striking as last year’s excellent “Once Around The House”, but it’s a nice indication of where they might be heading on the upcoming debut album Open Season – out on 29th of January. Stream “In A Dream” below and don’t forget to watch the video of the excellent and a bit more folky (think Fleet Foxes or Bon Iver), “Once Around The House”.
