Now Playing: HighSchool – ‘New York, Paris and London’

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

Melbourne-based HighSchool proves why they’re ones-to-watch with their stirring new number ‘New York, Paris and London’. Featuring Rory, Lilli and Scotty, they released their brilliant debut track ‘Floating’ also this year. Their brand new single coincides with the big news of their signing to UK label Dalliance Recordings. 

Though HighSchool’s sound is home to a mix of 80s new wave stirred in with the ferocity of industrial post-punk, they’re no imitation, instead, they infuse their own flavour into their sound and make it entirely their own — they bring something very unique to Australia’s music climate and it’s very exciting. 

On the new single, Lilli said, “‘New York Paris and London’ exposes peer validation that exists in settings where criticism is common. It suggests that dreaming and manifesting is as meaningful as our ambitions coming to fruition. New York, Paris and London are three highly desirable, yet clichéd destinations that symbolise the elusiveness of our own self expectations.”

With an EP in the works and due for release in early 2021, big things are coming HighSchool’s way very soon.
