HIGH WAISTED





High Waisted talk about pedals and gear on Delicious Audio

Brooklyn-based quartet High Waisted is a fierce garage pop band that dwells in sunshine surf vibes. Though they draw from the sound of the mid-'60s, the four musicians are fearless in their determination to put their own quirky spin on each one of their tunes. The band is fronted by the formidable Jessica Louise Dye, who recently talked to our sister blog Delicious Audio about the High Waisted's latest release, and what she's currently using to coax the wildest sounds out of her gear. Read the Q&A here. Check out their latest video for single "Firebomb," streaming below.





High Waisted share new music, tour US and play Rough Trade on 11/4

With the release of two new singles while embarked on an extensive U.S. tour, Brooklyn’s High Waisted look to expand their reach.  Moving beyond the garage and surf rock beginnings, this newer material appears to take on a broader scope.  “Free Throw” is an anxious chugger that expresses internal self-doubt.  “Wish I couldn’t remember - the mistake I made.  I’ll be better on my own.”  Although recorded in NY, the Nashville touch on mixing and mastering adds a subtle level of country-pop sheen.  “Firebomb” stomps harder with more prominent drums, crunchy rock guitars and Jessica’s sassy snarl lead vocals matched against dreamier background voices.  Both tracks come paired with two others from current tour mates The Coax, available now on vinyl and digital from Little Dickman Records.  Their current US tour has them playing nearly every night until early November before the band returns home on November 4th at Rough Trade. - Dave Cromwell





Buzz Alert! High Waisted unveils new video for "Trust" + tours

With such a touch-and-go winter, I'm not going to be convinced that the first day of Spring has actually arrived until all of the snow has melted off my front lawn. Luckily for me, I have garage pop band, High Waisted, to warm me up and get me into that summer mindset. The NYC-based group deals in sunshine surf vibes, drawing heavily from music of the mid-60's, but puts their own, quirky spin on things. Their songs are fun, high-energy tracks guaranteed to have you California dreaming, even while you shlep through the remainder of slush. Right now, the band is touring the East Coast in support of their latest album, On Ludlow, but we're sure that they won't be away from New York for long. In the meantime, take a look at the official video from their new single, "Trust" streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Crushed Out premieres new video "Love Howl"

The newest bare-knuckled single/video combo from Brooklyn-based duo Crushed Out, "Love Howl," delivers blaring, bluesy garage rock reminiscent of powerful bands like Jack White's side project Dead Weather. The track lives up to its name, with vocals yelping their way through fuzzy guitars, and a primal drumbeat. The video is DIY-ish but drips with animal magnetism, pairing the tune with images of mystical, half-human creatures losing themselves to their mating calls. (Why humans don't do mating calls by the way? Let's bring them back, NYC!) Be sure to catch Crushed Out at their Le Poisson Rogue album release show on September 28 with High Waisted, Caged Animals, and Prima. -Olivia Sisinni





High Waisted releases video for "Party in the Back"+ plays Baby's All Right on 02.04

We've been waiting for some "proper" recordings from Brooklyn vintage pop quartet High Waisted since we booked them for our 40th NYC issue launch party back in 2014. The band only had these uber lo-fi recordings available online, until, finally, this week they announced the upcoming release of a full length album entitled "On Ludlow," unveiling this fun video for single "Party in the Back." A true and tried party band, High Waisted blends the classic NYC garage rock sound with pop melodies reminiscent of the early '60s' lightharted pop. Don't miss their show on February 4 at Baby's All Right celebrating the finale of their "Winter Whatever" Tour.
