One High Five, an explosion of indie punk rock ‘n roll fueled by singer & songwriter David Sauer’s love of loud noises, ear candy, and fun.
The Long Beach-based band counts as inspiration infectiously catchy tunesmiths such as Green Day, King Tuff, NOFX and T-Rex among others. The band has independently released two albums, Hear, Hear! (2015) and Beardlip (2019), a clutch of singles, and been featured on various compilation discs, films, and commercial spots. One High Five has performed regionally and nationally, select live career highlights include appearances at CMJ and Broke LA.
Their sophomore album, Beardlip, posits an intriguing duality of playful, almost unflinchingly, upbeat indie rock juxtaposed with heartfelt, honest, and literate lyrics. The album spans raved-up, neo-1960s garage rock, replete with organs and exuberant lead guitar (“Noisemaker”); raucously catchy, indie rock with unexpected dynamic twists and turns (“Fast Food”); and personal reflection tucked away in quirky neo-new wave pop rock (“Bones Of My Ancestors”). Among other terrain, the 12-song album also traverses stun-gun indie-funk, and artfully-warped rockabilly. Beardlip was mixed by Jonny Bell (Crystal Antlers, Hanni El Kathib), and mastered by Carl Saff (Sub Pop, Matador Records).
