High Kicks with Miesha & The Spanks, Tiny Shrines & Denimmachine
Fuzzed out power rockers *HighKicks* are your new favourite band. Listen to their album and tell me I’m wrong. See their rock show and tell me I’m crazy. Featuring members of the Dudes, This City Defects, Dojo Workhorse and Axis of Conversation, HighKicks are old pros at keeping it RAD. They’re coming to your town soon, so keep an eye out if you like honest to goodness, sing along fuzz rock, or just stay home and watch reruns of Frasier if that’s not your thing.
“Having played more or less constantly since their debut a couple of months ago, the High Kicks have been steadily building a following around their lively, stripped down live set. Danny Vacon and Matt Doherty seem perfectly complemented for each other, channeling their chemistry so that the sum seems so much larger than the individual parts. Featuring Vacon on a scuzzy, saturated bass and Doherty behind a drum kit that stands as a testament to materials engineering after he’s done pummelling them… Vacon’s melodic vocals function as an effective counterpoint to the gutter howl they kick up, at once conjuring up rock and roll’s eternal romanticism. With plans to lay down some tracks to tape in the near future, expect good things from this duo.”
