HIGHLANDS + Red Bull Music

Long Beach, California psych-poppers Highlands have teamed up with Red Bull Music to premiere their newest track, "Onto You," off their upcoming sophomore album, Dark Matter Traveler.

Out July 15th on the band's own Say Again Records, Dark Matter Traveller was recorded by Rollie Ulug (Graf Orlock, Dangers) and mastered by J.P. Bendzinski of Crystal Antlers.

Of "Onto You," Red Bull Music editor Elliott Sharp writes: "It shows Highlands' love for classic shoegazers like Slowdive and Ride, But the foggy, zonked tune also has a Black Angels-y psych-rock thing happening."

Another song off Dark Matter Traveler, "Beauty," was premiered this month on BrooklynVegan.

"If you used to listen to Swervedriver in the '90s... this will be right up your alley."
