Here's The Garage Rock Love Ballad Your Summer Needs

You get me high. And now I want to be with you.

Posted on

Australian rockers Royal Headache masterfully combined garage, punk and soul on their 2011 self-titled debut album. "High," the new single off of the band's forthcoming sophomore effort, is no exception.

Perfect for those hot summer days spent meeting beautiful, tan people at rooftop parties or nights spent compulsively swiping right on Tinder, the track's earnest, simple chorus is as immediately memorable as it is easy to learn.

Seamlessly transitioning between garage-y grit and soulful romanticism, Royal Headache vocalist Shogun's melodic expertise makes the early 60s pop of yore seem totally fresh.

TL;DR If you're a fan of Sam Cooke and The Sonics, or just a would-be romantic hoping for some summer lovin', you'll dig this one.

Royal Headache's new album, also named High, is out August 21st on What's Your Rapture? Hear the song "Girls" from their self-titled debut here.
