High Highs

Ocean to City

10/7

When asked to describe the ideal environment for listening to High Highs’ new EP, lead-singer and guitarist Jack Milas answered, “Just before dawn, when the party has ended.” Following 2013’s dreamy debut Open Season and an extensive year of touring, the Australian duo is set to release a three-song EP entitled Ocean To City.

Jack Milas and Oli Chang began making music together as High Highs in their native Sydney, Australia, while working at the same recording studio. Chang found himself drawn to Milas’ writing style, and the pair plunged into a world of collaboration and invention. They discovered the basis of a band aesthetic by marrying Chang’s passion for electronic indie with Jack’s penchant for classic acoustic rock. When Milas took an opportunity to work and live in New York, Chang joined, and the duo settled in Brooklyn.

Since living in the States, High Highs have toured with Vampire Weekend, Empire Of The Sun, Sky Ferreira, and Stars. “Opening for bigger bands in larger venues really gave us a sense of what works musically in big spaces,” said Chang. “It’s also been interesting to see people respond to big melodies in a positive way.” No longer working full-time jobs, this new freedom and time spent traveling the country also helped nurture these songs. “The music comes from a place of seeing more of the world,” explained Milas. “There are powerful moments and quiet moments, but we’ve tried to be honest in terms of presenting something that we think is beautiful.”
