High-tails - Terrible Day

High-tails - Terrible Day
High-tails is comprised of four childhood friends from Wagga who all moved to the big smoke for varying reasons, but found themselves drawn back together through a shared love of creating chiming pop music. They dropped their debut song a little under twelve months ago with "Maps" - a sunburst shot of economical pop that channelled the boys' beloved favourites The Go-Betweens, it had Two Thousand praising its "dreamy layered guitar melodies and a chorus to emote nostalgic Australian film scenes" while triple j Unearthed's Dave Ruby Howe proclaimed it "The Song Of The Summer".

The band is the newest signing for Stop Start, joining top-notch home-grown alumni Ball Park Music, Millions, Northeast Party House and others. Label head Andy Bryan says "It’s always about good songs and when I heard 'Bending Over Backwards' I was immediately taken with this band. ‘Terrible Day' only further cemented my interest. The material they’re writing shows huge potential and we are very excited to be working with them. Another great Aussie band in the making.”

High-tails have slots at a range of East Coast festivals and special events in the next couple of months.

About this track...

Frontman Nicholas Griffith says of the song "The opening line literally came from watching an old woman and her dog out my window. From there I basically indulged myself in excessive wordplay, which I hope others will find as amusingly cheesy as I do."
