We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of The High Loves’ new song “Serotonin” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP by the same name, which is scheduled to be released later this year.
The band commented on the song:
‘Serotonin’ was the first song I wrote with this new project in mind. It was a beginning point for the band and it seems fitting to release it as the first single. Our mission is to perform music that comes from a true place of passion and inspiration – no gimmicks, just raw and genuine.
About the band:
If you find yourself in a packed venue, surrounded by music enthusiasts of all types, waiting for The High Loves to take the stage, you will quickly notice a palpable excitement in the crowd. Their mission is simply to perform the music that their passions inspired. Not overproduced and without gimmicks, but raw and genuine. It’s the same tight sound that you will be hearing on their upcoming Serotonin EP. With lyrics inspired by the lifestyle and experiences of lead singer and songwriter Noah Monckton, drummer Mathieu Landry, bassist Matt Bawtinheimer, and lead guitarist Marko Stojanovic, The High Loves showcase their ability to stay true to the music, and to provide an original and memorable experience. Their style is a mix of old and new, both retro and modern. To say a combination of The Beatles and the Strokes might be accurate, but does little justice to the authority of their sound.
New single “Serotonin” encapsulates a bubblin’ infectious energy to great effect. Vocal hooks bounce off of melodic guitar hooks, while the rhythm section tries to trademark the phrase “top-tappin’.” There’s also a playful edge that separates the song from being just a run of the mill rock radio muzak jam. There might not be anything subtle about the ‘Serotonin’, but the crafty sonic interplay will have you coming back for multiple plays. You’ll crave the stimulating nature of the track. You’ll need the endless harmonic energy. And you’ll be anticipating the next time you can crank The High Loves on your stereo.
