HIGH HIGHS release this charming cover of College's "A Real Hero" and it's an instant winner. Filled with explosive melody, pastel warmth, and bucket loads of nostalgia, it rushes the bloodstream and hits you where it hurts best. And there ain't nothin' better than that. Feel that heartbeat?
"A Real Hero" is out via Fine Time/Sony in Australia and the band's own label Never Leave Never Sleep in the US.
From High Highs:
"This cover has been a staple of our live show since we started touring in January. We started playing it purely for fun and we kept hearing from everyone that we had to record it. After the Vampire Weekend tour we flew straight to Sydney to play with Empire of the Sun at the Sydney Opera House. We spent a few days in the studio there where we recorded 'A Real Hero' and tracked a new song."
