With catchy riffs both on the piano and the horn section it's a snap shot of a drunk night talking about cabs that won’t stop and even featuring the line “Should we stop by Danny’s Burgers?”.

Dubbed as “infectious garage pop” by Rolling Stone magazine, High Tropics is the moniker of Queensland based songwriter Josh Stewart and his live band.
‘Feel the Same’ is in essence about when one finally gets what they’ve been chasing for a long period of time; referencing the idea that sometimes we chase goals or reach certain milestones expecting a self-transformation to take place only to find that nothing has actually changed – or maybe it’s not what we wanted at all.

The song captures inspiration from classic garage-rock bands like The Strokes and Franz Ferdinand, while also drawing influence from Andy Shauf’s The Party LP, in capturing a modern romantic narrative.

‘Poison Blood’ follows the raw and honest path which the band has forged with previous releases and explores breaking the cycle of pain. Salvo’s refined, yet powerful vocals, making it impossible to ignore the weight of the song’s lyrics. The much slower underlying tempo allows the song to wash over, leaving an empowering sentiment of ending a victim mentality.
