Highlands Album Stream

Highlands “Dark Matter Traveler” Exclusive Album Stream

While they are from a completely different continent, Southern California’s Highlands draw inspiration from the Scottish hills after which they take their name. Today, the group releases their sophomore effort Dark Matter Traveler, an appropriate title given the adventurous nature of their music and its genre-defying sound.

Blending influences such as shoegaze and psychedelic rock, adding a bit more backbone, they create their own sound using dissonant layers of instrumentation combined with pop-inspired hooks. Having been compared to ’90s bands like Swervedriver and Slowdive, their follow up to 2012’s Singularity is definitely a progression for Highlands. The single “Beauty” premiered a few months back, and the rest of the album is consistent in its high quality.

Listen to the exclusive stream of  Dark Matter Traveler below, which comes out today on their newly formed Say Again Records.
