Rock duo 88/89 share dreamy new single 'Never Been so High'

Following the success of previous tracks ‘Hit Me’ and ‘The Man’, dream rock duo, 88/89, are back with the release of their new angelic indie-rock sound ‘Never Been So High’.



‘Never Been So High’ consists of a combination of soft, catchy vocalisation overtop a rocky cocktail of synths, drum machines, and guitars. Offering up the trademark dream rock sound that the band has been heralded, the track itself is an ode to being high on love.

‘Never Been So High’ sits at the intersection of up-beat rock and laid-back indie-pop.


"The full lyric is “never been so high In love”, so it’s really about that. At the time we wrote it, we were experimenting with throwing lots of different sounds together to create a sort of patchwork quilt of a song. We were jumping from synths to drum machines to guitars quite quickly. Once we had the music down, we let it guide the vocal creation and once we had that key line, the rest fell into place. Then we became briefly obsessed with trying to create a Backstreet Boys-style harmony which became the chorus that you hear." - 88/89 share
