Melbourne post punk/coldwave/new wave three-piece HighSchool have released the video for their new single “Only a Dream“.
The song, produced by Dan Care is out today (Oct 18) through Speedy Wunderground. Get it here.
‘Only A Dream’ is rooted in that clipped guitar line, the songwriting veering from early New Order to the Go-Betweens, while pursing a path of its own.
Working with alacrity clearly suits the band, and there’s a palpable immediacy to ‘Only A Dream’ that comes direct from that sweaty Sicilian recording hub. Say the band…
“The process of making a song – from composing to recording to releasing – usually takes us ages. We labour every detail and do like 30 mixes before we’re happy. In this sense, working with Speedy has been a revelation. Completing the recording of an entire song in one day and completing the mix the next day was liberating. It taught us to be economical and concise, and not to sweat the small stuff. Dan is a total visionary and an absolute pleasure to work with. We’re super stoked with the result.”
