The High Wire

Ecstacy pop

The High Wire’s unique brand of dreamy “ecstasy pop” is a blend of acoustic-based melodies infused within a mix of heavy distortion, driving guitars and deliriously chanted vocal harmonies. Named after the Richard and Linda Thompson song Walking on a Wire and counting bands such as The Byrds, Pink Floyd and Teenage Fanclub as early influences, The High Wire were definitley worth a watch.
