Melbourne newcomers HighSchool have been moving at an alarming speed since their formation last year. Pulling in listeners with their dark sound and visuals, their debut EP has excited tastemakers across the world.
Like many of their post-punk contemporaries, there is an obvious influence from the likes of New Order and The Cure throughout the EP, but what stands out is that HighScool are not afraid to go beyond the sonic precedent set by those who came before them. Every element, whether it’s guitar, bass, synth or drums, is used to their greatest advantage. HighSchool are also known for heavily prioritising their visuals, with impressive music videos complementing each of the six tracks on the EP.
