Sydney's sure-footed guitar-popsters High-tails today unveil their new single "Terrible Day". It follows on from previous smash "Bending Over Backwards" and is another taste of the band's debut EP "Sipping Tea To Make Music To Sip Tea To", which we are proud to announce will be released on 3rd October.
The band is the newest signing for Stop Start, joining top-notch home-grown alumni Ball Park Music, Millions, Northeast Party House and others. Label head Andy Bryan says "It’s always about good songs and when I heard 'Bending Over Backwards' I was immediately taken with this band.’Terrible Day' only further cemented my interest. The material they’re writing shows huge potential and we are very excited to be working with them. Another great Aussie band in the making.”
High-tails is comprised of four childhood friends from Wagga who all moved to the big smoke for varying reasons, but found themselves drawn back together through a shared love of creating chiming pop music. They dropped their debut song a little under twelve months ago with "Maps" - a sunburst shot of economical pop that channelled the boys' beloved favourites The Go-Betweens, it had Two Thousand praising its "dreamy layered guitar melodies and a chorus to emote nostalgic Australian film scenes" while triple j Unearthed's Dave Ruby Howe proclaimed it "The Song Of The Summer".
In tandem with these releases High-tails have played gigs across the country supporting Northeast Party House, The Holidays, Major Leagues, Loon Lake, The Cairos and more. An enthusiastic Guardian review called the band's live show "impressively tight" and "a well-rounded set of slacker pop"
High-tails have slots at a range of East Coast festivals and special events in the next couple of months, as well as their own hometown EP launch at Goodgod Small Club in October. Show details below.
