If you’re into Teenage Shutdown-style jangle rock, The Higher State are carrying that torch well. This recent single contains two mid-tempo pseudo-’60s rockers. The A-side moves. The B-side is an up-all-night comedown with a simple keyboard solo in the middle. Perfect for looking off of a bridge or a montage in a non-linear movie. Solid single.
