Sydney four-piece Highline have shared their new single, Chasing Heaven, serving as the second taste from their sophomore EP, Off Track. The release comes after two mammoth sold-out performances at Sydney's Oxford Art Factory earlier this month. View our full gallery of the shows here!
Bringing honest lyricism to the release, the track sees the four-piece take a more subdued approach to their brand of indie-rock, building up to a shimmering chorus set atop bold and charismatic sonics. Speaking of the release, lead guitarist Rhys Hope shares: “This song is really about the allure of hazardous vices and peoples’ self-destructive attraction to them; about how it's so common to see people chase these heavenly ‘highs’ whilst also indirectly chasing their graves, finding themselves chasing heaven in two very different ways at the same time”
Forming in high school after playing together in their schools jazz band, Highline have spent the last few years building up their fanbase and carving out their own path within the indie-rock genre. Having released their debut EP Strictly Dreaming in February last year, the four-piece have played sold-out shows across Sydney, including a headline performance at The Lansdowne. Highline have spent the past year working on new music, writing and recording with producer Jack Nigro at the acclaimed The Grove Studios in NSW.
Chasing Heaven is out now!
