High/Low – Forty EP

highlow1

High/Low, the reformed members of The Nurse Who Loved Me are back at what they do best and that’s making music and putting their all into every last bit, this time with their E.P Forty.

Steve Weston on Guitars/Vocals/Drums/Noises accompanied by Lee ‘Meatarm’ Yates on Fuzzy Bass/Perc/Keys/B Vocals, present to you a 6 track E.P of pure brilliance.

With their raw but powerfully beautiful lyrics and vocals from Steve and Fuzzy Bass with added soft and gentle backing vocals from Lee, this duo have been said to sound a lot like the early days of Feeder and Silver Sun Pickups with personal influences coming from bands such as Dinosaur Jr and Foo Fighters.

Forty, the bands first single from the E.P jumps straight in with no messing about. Punished guitar strings, sharp drums, tuned bass all screaming ‘Yes we’re loud. Yes we’re Fuzzy. Now shut up and listen.’

Steve’s talent to write music and lyrics is always a pleasure to experience.

Accompanied by Lee’s Bass Line, Forty is a belter of an opener to an E.P.

In Flight opens with twinkling chords from Steve’s guitar and vocals to ease you in. Lee’s Bass follows shortly with that familiar sound that we have all grown to love.

Lee’s repeated quiet backing vocals compliment Steves voice during the chorus on this track superbly. Crashing symbols and fuzzy bass all mixed in with raw vocals and heavy guitar. This is by far my favourite track from the E.P

High/Low are a band that works great together and enjoy every minute of it, which is clearly shown by the pure talent, hard work and determination to produce brilliant music. High/Low are a band in a league of their own when it comes to the Local music scene.

I would pay to find a band that put this much time and effort into making music.

Forty released on the 6th August with the finishing touches being made to a second E.P ready for release in October.
