“Forever At Last is a sprawling and gorgeous thing, overflowing with ideas and gothic excess, not only a monument to unbridled creativity but an achievement in itself: they’ve made something beautiful despite the many barriers in their way. It’s admirable, really.” NME
“Unashamedly hook-driven art pop elation… HighSchool are ones to watch this year.” So Young
“Deliciously dark dance numbers that’ll be stuck in your head for days.” DIY
“Potent indie pop that recalls early Beach Fossils, aspects of The Cure, while channelling
elements of The Go-Betweens, but really HighSchool are forging fresh paths,
and laying claim to a sound of their own.” CLASH
Melbourne’s HighSchool appeared last summer with the self-released single ‘Frosting’, an indie-pop gem that promised great things. Fast forward a year and with more stellar tracks to their name, they’re finally releasing their debut EP, Forever at Last, on November 1st.
Shortly after forming, HighSchool - the trio of Lilli Trobbiani, Luke Scott and Rory Trobbiani - found themselves in near-eternal lockdown with the COVID restrictions being placed on their hometown proving the longest anywhere in the world. Deprived of the chance to go out and play shows, they carried on undeterred, recording tracks with close friend Archie Shannon (Floodlights), dropping them every few months along with a stunning, self-directed music video for each.
