SPEED DATE WITH… The High Learys

1. Your Profile

The High Learys are a Psych Pop band from Perth Western Australia. Our sound has been described as a fearlessly modern take on a retro inspired sound. We’re always looking to engage with new fans who are up for nothing short of a good time.

2. Keeping Busy

We’ve been recording a lot of new material recently, which we can’t wait to release later on in the year. We have also been writing a lot lately and have spent the last few months workshopping new songs and getting them ready to perform on our National Tour this June and July.

3. Best Gig Ever

Probably our favourite gig so far would have to be The Purple Weekend Festival in Spain, which we played back in 2014. The crowd were amazing.

4. Current Playlist

We’ve been listening to a band out of Los Angeles recently called Mini Mansions. Really digging their latest album The Great Pretenders. Their sound is really unique and they have definitely been an inspiration for us lately.

5. Your Ultimate Rider

A giant Nando’s feast would be fantastic on our dream rider, plus an large supply of ice cold Asahi’s to wash it down with. Mind you it’d be pretty hard for us to go on stage and perform whilst recovering from chicken comas.

Who: Jamie Turner
Where & When: Workers Club, Geelong – July 7, Karova Lounge, Ballarat – July 8 & Ding Dong Lounge, Melbourne – July 9.
