Much like the band name anagram that provides its title, High-tails' debut album "A Slight Hi" is a consciously coltish set of shapeshifting guitar-pop, frisky dance-funk and whimsical wordplay.
The Wagga-via-Sydney boys teamed with producer Chris Colonna, previously of Modular hitmakers Bumblebeez. Chris beamed himself in from his Braidwood bunker to track with the High-tails boys at studios on the Central Coast and in Sydney. Oh, and frontman Nick recorded some vocals in his bedroom, too!
For a band whose early hits "Bending Over Backwards" and "Information" were tightly-wound guitar-pop songs, High-tails have got their groove on (and bought a fair few synths in the process, too). Aside from frantic bangers like the LinnDrum machine-led first single "All The Time", the album also boasts some smooth jams ("Bubblegum" and "Shoop Shoop" are as pillowy as their titles suggest, and call to mind the head-nodding vibes of The Whitest Boy Alive and Lifetones), as well as featherlight punk-funk ("Into The Light" and "Stickn Round" owe their shoe-shuffling sensitivities to High-tails' professed love of Orange Juice and Talking Heads). But fear not - "A Slight Hi" still has some soaring guitar jangle in the mix, too ("Friends Forever" and "Cool Wind and Pavement" are nostalgia-laced anthems with heartfelt shades of The Go-Betweens and you guessed it, Pavement).
"A Slight Hi" will put a smile on your dial, a wriggle in your hips, and some songs in your heart all at the same time.
