Jack Milas and Oli Chang, otherwise known as High Highs have released the New single “St. Marie”, which is now available to stream.
Milas described the process of making “St. Marie”; “We’re both living in different parts of the world at the moment, and this was our first time beginning and finishing a song remotely. We found that the distance lended a certain lightness to the creative process. There were very few emails exchanged, instead we communicated through the music, and relied on pure and immediate expression. Once we reached that point, it was finished. Lyrically, the song is a singular vision of a place that contains all the disparate memories of a relationship with one person. Events that bear no relation to one another are floating in mid air, stuck on top of each other, and all congregate in this one place.”
The duo, originally from Sydney Australia started making music under the moniker High Highs after both moved to New York. High Highs weave shimmery dreamy harmonies with an acoustic folk tinge to create pristine pop. They have toured extensively across the US and Australia with the likes of Sky Ferreira, Vampire Weekend and How to Dress Well.
