The alternative Football (soccer) England Euro2016 anthem written by a non footy fan and a Huddersfield Town fan.
The High Ones are a collaboration between Nigel from anglo flemish folk band - the low countries, and Mark from lo-fi popsters the pocket gods.
The new single 'Bold' taken from The High Ones spanking new release: 'Highlights' - a 14 track collection of prime popness (new, old, borrowed and blueberry). New tracks tastefully mixed with the finest cuts from the leg end that is the songbook of Mark and Nigel.
Released 26.1.15 on Nub Country Records.
The High Ones are Mark Lee (The Pocket Gods) and Nigel Parrington (The Low Countries) - together they produce psyched up harmonious 60s pop with a dash of wit and a smidgeon of darkness. Hook-laden fizzy-pop for the soul.
Our 'Highlights' is out on the 26th Jan 2015 and it collates our fave tracks and a few new ones that we've recorded over the past few years. At the height of our(massive) powers as a band line up we recorded a 4 song EP called Northern Skies, this song was recorded but left off (I can't remember why). It's now the only track related to that EP included on 'Highlights' and one of my favourites: great song, lyrics and, above all, a fantastic band arrangement, love it.
Way back when, we found the sun and recorded a full on balls out Brit-pop version of this song about a Northerner living it up in the balmy South. Well, years later, full of kids and lard pie we recorded a laid back, 'mature' version in a damp Huddersfield cellar. Featuring Els D'hooge & Jonas Parrington on BVs.
It's now available on our 'Highlights' released 26.1.15.
