Australia-based foursome The High Learys announce the release of their new single "I'm A Fool For You". The band embodies a retro sound that recalls the pop-rock greats of the British Invasion, complete with raw vocals and a jangly, yet dreamy instrumentation. With Jamie Turner on vocals/bass, Matt Williams and Matt Passmore on guitar, Mike Nutt on the organ and Adrian Macmillan on drums, The High Learys put a contemporary spin on blues, psychedelic-rock and 1960's pop.
The band formed in 2011 in their hometown of Perth, Australia. Cousins Jamie and Matt met Mike during their high school years and later recruited Adrian, finding his drumming style to be a perfect match for the band. Continuing the collaboration that started last year with their debut LP Hear Come The High Learys, the band worked closely with Perth producer Rob Grant (Tame Impala, Death Cab For Cutie) on "Clear My Mind". The High Learys are widely regarded as an important contributor the Australian music scene, and their live adaptations of 50's and 60's hits have become crowd favorites.
The Murdoch Independent says, "The High Learys have been causing quite a stir." The band has been causing a buzz throughout the blogosphere, leading Too Many Notes to say, "These Australian mods rock like it's still 1967." Stay tuned for more from these rising retro rockers from down under!
