High Up drive forward with a determined and purposeful take on soul, taking the listener on a journey into the past. This journey is critically led by the unrelenting Christine Fink who brings enough sass to the table to be compared to the likes of Aretha Franklin in her heyday.
The Omaha 6 piece have a delightful big-band allure to them, predictably commanding any stage they choose to set their sights on. Similarly to the previously-featured The Dip, High Up could slot in perfectly as the soundtrack to a grainy scene of young baby boomers dancing and twirling around a crackly old radio. Yet, like so many of the artists that found fame in the turning point of modern music, these tracks possess a timeless appeal that will never fade.
