Quirky 60's garage rock is re-imagined from the nose of a surfboard, making High Waisted feel like a psychedelic lullaby. NYC surf rockers with pop sensibilities and an affliction for rock and roll have been called NME Magazine’s “Buzz Band to Watch,” declared “The Ultimate Party Band” by GQ and have received praise from Consequence of Sound, Noisey, and Paste. With their sophomore album underway, the band released an interactive 360 degree music video for their track "Hey Hey" in collaboration with Refinery29, performed a live session at Nylon Magazine, and Paste Magazine. The group spent most of 2016 and 2017 touring the country and released a split 7” (Little Dickman Records) which debuted on Billboard. The group's anticipated sophomore record was produced by Tad Kubler (The Hold Steady) and mixed by Arun Bali (Saves The Day). Every show is a party when High Waisted’s lo-fi fuzzy bass, reverb drenched guitars and radiant harmonies mesh to create the melodies of your wave-crashed daydreams.
