2-Track Single Available Now, Includes “Downtown” Performing Live @ Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party, 7/26
Debut LP Super Class Drops October 7 via Dine Alone Records
” …more akin to American weirdos of various unseemliness from Ariel Pink to Jim James, tapping into a bygone era of retro-futurism and resulting in something so out-of-time that it sounds timeless.” – Pitchfork
“… a futuristic, psychedelic rock track that has put us in a trance.” – Refinery29
“ …a weightlessness that’s easy to fall in love with.” – KUT
” …retro-futuristic sound that’s hard to pin down but easy to enjoy — similar in spirit to fellow Vancouver resident Dan Bejar’s Destroyer.” – Stereogum
Yukon Blonde frontman Jeffrey Innes recently launched his new solo project High Endsas an adventurous new songwriting outlet. Prompted by an excess of time off the road and a burst of creativity, Innes took to an array of analogue synthesizers and wrote the majority of what would become Super Class fairly quickly. The resulting debut full-length album will be released October 7th via Dine Alone Records.
Having previously revealed lush album cut “The Weight” and the infectious“Downtown,” Refinery29 has revealed the mid-summer psych-rock anthem“Intoxicated” strapped with rhythmic shifts and a catchy melody. Check out“Intoxicated” HERE, and we encourage you to post and share! Beginning today, it is also available for purchase as a 2-track single alongside “Downtown”.
The ten-song LP was recorded with producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, The New Pornographers) at his Vancouver Island facility. During the sessions, Gold & Youth drummer Jeff Mitchelmore handled percussion, Louise Burns and The New Pornographers’ Kathryn Calder contributed backing vocals, and Ladyhawk’s Darcy Hancock laid down guitar.
High Ends will play Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party on Saturday, July 26th on the Barboza Stage. Stay tuned for news of a full North American tour, coming soon!
