Smack bang stunning new stuff from Jerko signees High-tails. Unlike the label’s usual contingent of spewing brat-rock, like Wax Witches and Step-Panther, High-tails provide a super low-key and enjoyable affair. The song mulls on first kisses, Australia and teenager-hood-dom (that’s a word now) in general, all to the tune of delicately balanced simplicity. The harmonica solo at the end, a thing usually reserved for annoying the fuck out of people, actually works really well, in a quaint kind of way. Beautiful stuff.
You can catch High-tails playing Brighton-Up Bar on Friday the 27th of September.
