Hurricane Fighter Plane was a great young Australian band that I shortly featured on this blog a couple of times. It was sad to hear that they called it a day late last year, but there’s no need to dwell on sadness. Two Hurricane Fighter Plane members Jamie Turner and Matt Williams soon formed a new band called The High Learys and this band is equally brilliant. I’ve been following them on FB from the start, but I don’t think I’ve written about them before. There’s plenty of good reasons to finally do that now. 1) Their debut album Here Come The High Learys recently came out on the excellent Soundflat Records 2) The new video for the song Let You Down surfaced a few days ago 3) The record and the video are both pretty damn good and The High Learys do this 60s garage/R&B/beat thing extremely well.
You can listen to the whole album at bandcamp and here’s that new video Let You Down. Directed by Neil McArther.
