When you think of New York, surf might not be the first thing to come to mind, but NYC rockers High Waisted are changing that. The party loving, garage surf rock band mixes pop style with surf swing. Their summer sound is light-hearted and hypnotic with soft toned, doo wop ranging vocals (reminiscent to the likings of Dum Dum Girls, Cults and Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino) and reverb heavy guitar accompaniment.
Door is off their newly released debut album, On Ludlow. The 60's styled anthem is consistent with their relaxed, dog days spirit. With sway-induced patterns and catchy beat, it's almost hard to realize the less-than-happy lyrics. The call for attention is masked by upbeat tempo and fetching back up chorus. Check out the song for yourself and party with them in person July 3rd on their tour at Boone & Crockett's.
