HIGHGARDEN have proven themselves to be Progressive Alt Rock royalty with their debut single “Apex” which was released on June 22nd, 2019. If you’re looking for ways to perceptibly raise your blood pressure the high-octane blasts of rhythmic frenzy contained within Apex will quite literally render you breathlessly adrenalized.
With vocals which share the same level of visceral magnetism as Eddie Vedder’s, big Pop choruses and intricately anthemic Alt Rock breakdowns, sharing in the hype and passion which Apex was created from is pretty much nonoptional.
The crisp production on the track allows you to truly appreciate the Math Rock outro on Apex, while the choruses will feed you plenty of momentum listening to the ingenious time signatures on the guitar as they bounce against the blistering thrashes of the drums are as gentle as a cattle prod.
If I had to pick the most promising debut of 2019 so far, the honour would undoubtedly be HIGHGARDEN’s.
