UPCOMING RELEASE NEWS: High Up – You Are Here (TL-110)


Singer Christine Fink moved to Omaha from Muscle Shoals to be closer to her sister Orenda (Azure Ray), and soon they started a band with Josh Soto, Todd Fink (The Faint) and Matt Focht (Head of Femur, Bright Eyes). High Up‘s collaboration is a mix of indie rock, punk and soul that showcases Christine’s powerful vocals and Orenda’s seasoned songwriting, which draws from a wide variety of influences such as Janis Joplin (who Christine is frequently compared to at live shows from misty-eyed ex-hippies), Sam Cooke, and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins to Dead Kennedys, and The Birthday Party

Their debut album You Are Here (TL-110) will be released February 23 on Team Love. It was produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit, Monsters of Folk) at ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska.

Preorder it now on TL Bandcamp.
