Get Turned on by Highly Suspect

Get Turned on by Highly Suspect

I have yet to find a picture of Highly Suspect with their shirts on. With their blend of summertime hooks worthy of late-era Incubus, I guess this shore readiness is well-suited. The slow skank verse and distorted hook hum in songs like 'The Alligator Song' and 'Gang Lion' were practically made for an MTV spring break jam, but the rock trio's lush tenor harmonies reveal an appreciation for subtler moments and the occasional lift to a loftier plane. And did I mention they have no shirts?
