Battle the mid-week blues with High Tropics’ powerful new track
Location: Queensland, Australia
FFO: The Ninjas, The Belligerents, Sea Girls
Rising like the phoenix from the ashes of early 2000s indie-rock, Queensland’s favourite “garage-pop” outfit High Tropics return with another storming effort.
‘Wait For You’ is reminiscent of early Strokes, but brings with it a sizzling lo-fi charm that douses the track in warm nostalgia. It’s positive, powerful, and looks to the future with bright eyes, and an unbreakable desire to keep moving forward despite the hardships many of us face on a daily basis.
“I’m generally a pretty private person so I don’t really like to share personal issues,” explains frontman Josh Steward. “But having recently witnessed someone I admire share some of the struggles he’d faced silently for many years, I’m now more aware of how important it is to be honest and share our battles with physical and mental health, especially in an industry where struggles with the latter are all too common.”
