A Real Hero

One of my gripes with High High’s debut album Open Season (released earlier this year, and to be released on vinyl in November following a remix EP due next month) is that it doesn’t have enough energy and gusto packed in. The title track still shines bright, but any real life is mostly lacking on the album. Huzzah for the band’s latest track, “A Real Hero,” which sounds the band reinvented and with a new goal in their sights. It’s a cover of a College track which many will recall from the Drive soundtrack, but here it sound’s very much like their own creation. There’s still a haziness lingering about, but combined with a forwarding drumbeat, soothing instrumental fusion, and the feeling that something is one the line, it all comes together wonderfully.
