HighSchool - Only a Dream

Oh yes! A new cut that is drooling with gothic pop excess!
Having spent 2021 dropping great singles with stunning, band-made accompanying videos, they finally released their infectious six-track debut EP, entitled ‘Forever at Last’, at the end of the year to much acclaim… (“A sprawling and gorgeous thing” - NME, "Unashamedly hook-driven art pop elation” - So Young, “Potent indie pop that recalls early Beach Fossils, aspects of The Cure, while channelling elements of The Go-Betweens, but really they are forging fresh paths, and laying claim to a sound of their own” - Clash Magazine). With people hooked, the first 12” pressing sold-out immediately (released as part of the Dinked series) and the gig bookings flew in.

Now based in London, they’ve wasted no time getting to know their new home, playing shows with CHVRCHES, Mitski, NewDad and Wet Leg, as well as various UK festivals including All Points East, End of the Road, The Great Escape, Manchester Psych Festival, Sea Change, Standon Calling and Visions. The second half of the year sees them tour Europe for the first time as well as their first headline tour of the UK. Shows in North America and back home in Australia are scheduled for 2023. ‘They’re like the perfect amalgamation of all my favourite bands,’ says Speedy co-runner Pierre Hall after catching one of their early Great Escape Shows. ‘We met up with them when we got back to London and asked them to play our compilation launch a few weeks later. They fitted in perfectly and just felt like family straight away.’

A limited 7" single of just 500 copies.
