HighSchool shares “She Took You To Narnia”, the track arrives ahead of the release of their new EP, Accelerator, which drops on April 19, via PIAS. The song follows previous EP singles “August 19” and “Doesn’t Matter.” Of the process behind the new single, the band share: “A subtle influence for ‘She Took You To Narnia’ is ‘Mirror’s Image’ by The Horrors. We especially love the way it turns from being a four-to-the-floor electronic track to a more guitar-based band sound in the opening minute. We attempted to replicate this in our own way here.” HighSchool includes Rory Trobbiani and Luke Scott.

Accelerator follows a busy year for the band, having returned to Australia earlier this year for a pair of headline homecoming shows, followed by a sold-out, three-date Japanese run, SXSW 2024 appearances, headline shows in Los Angeles and New York City respectively, and national USA tours supporting both Provoker and zzzahara.

HighSchool have played shows with Wet Leg, CHVRCHES and NewDad on tour before playing a summer of UK festivals including All Points East, End of the Road, The Great Escape, Manchester Pysch Festival, and many more. The autumn brought their first headline shows, both in the UK and across Europe, promoting not only their EP but also their anthemic track ‘Only a Dream’, released as a limited 7” on Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label. They ended the year touring back in Australia with Sam Fender, before playing their first headline hometown show at The Corner Hotel.

With Rory’s sister Lilli Trobbiani staying back to complete her studies, they returned to London to work on their second EP, basing themselves out of a practice space in Peckham. Bridging the gap to their second EP was ‘Colt’, their most dancefloor-friendly track yet which had brilliant splashes of electro and Italo-disco added to their new wave mix. It also had a great accompanying video, shot in Rome with a vainglorious Rory mingling among the sights and bemused tourists.
