Originally from Sydney, Brooklyn-based band High Highs latest track “Once Around The House,” from their forthcoming debut LP, is an earnestly sweet ballad, rich in its ability to sustain sorrow, with an equally as gorgeous accompanying clip directed by frequent collaborator Thomas Beug who also directed their video for “Open Season.” Beug, along with cinematographer Hernan Otano create a music video encapsulated in what can only be described as a grand gesture with a never-ending thread of fairy lights connecting the protagonist to High Highs’ thought provoking lyricism.

Comprised of Jack Milas and Oli Chang and joined for their live show by drummer Zach Lipkins, the three-piece produces euphoric electronica layered with a fragile falsetto and textured acoustic elements which is showcased on their latest offering and has subtly evolved since their 2011 self-titled EP. Like many bands hailing from the New York music mecca of Brooklyn of late, the clip is shot with a washed out, vintage aesthetic, however this only adds to the mystery and intrigue of the penetrating lights which fuzz against the shadowy, dark background. Milas’ vocals set against a lush melody create the perfect backdrop to the protagonists journey of mysticism and ultimately freedom.
