I've been a fan of the High Water Marks from the very beginning, loving both of their records on Eenie Meenie and Happy Happy Birthday To Me. So when I found out that they didn't know what to do with their third album, I jumped at the chance to release it! A duo of Per Ole Bratset and Hilarie Sidney, their sound is quite similar to vintage Apples In Stereo (which I'd say even if Hilarie wasn't an original member of that band!), playing fuzzy pop songs with memorable melodies that will stick with you long after the record is over.
I'm a total sucker for noisy pop - especially when it's of this caliber! Take the best parts of current noisy bands like Male Bonding, or their forefathers Poastal and Juniper, and you've got an idea of where this new UK band are coming from...
