North Highlands – “Benefits” – 1.5.12

 

“Work… I promise to work,
I promise to pay it all off…
Take what you want,
Take it, take it all…”

One of my personal favorite New Year finds, Brooklyn’s North Highlands exist in the echoes of hallways long since trodden.  Shimmering guitars crash against the staccato rhythm-ridden walls like spotlights searing through barred-windows.  The elongated and enunciated vocals filling the entire space between.

I sincerely enjoy the ability for North Highlands to balance their pop sensibilities with technical expertise; creating a down-home yet far-out single with seeming ease.

Check out the entire album, Wild One, out on We Are Solid Gold Records.
