The Good Morrows & The High Learys

Perhaps The Frowning Clouds isn’t the most interesting Australian band anymore, as proven by two new bands from opposite ends of the continent. The Good Morrows have finally issued their debut LP after teasing us with the track “I Wanna Know” in 2013. The eastern-tinged “Let It Out” is several levels above that though. If you like Elephant Stone…

The High Learys have picked up pretty much where the Clouds left it with Listen Closelier, raw garage and authentic R’n’B sounds with a bit of jangle. After their first LP Here Come the High Learys, they returned in late 2014 with a new single called “Clear My Mind”. While channeling that original 60s teen spirit, they also have a bit of the flowering 80s Perth scene in them (I’m thinking of bands like The Palisades, Summer Suns and The Stems). At the same time the a-side sounds very close to The Allah-Las. While the flip is not quite as sweet, it also feels more original, and an excellent piece of songwriting.
