Listen to Highwaves, Stagelight’s Artist of the Month!
This month’s Open Labs spotlight is on a dreamy indie rock trio called Highwaves from Los Angeles, CA. They have already garnered popularity in LA playing at clubs and major venues. Highwaves paint a beautiful soundscape of catchy melodies and hypnotic grooves on their debut single, “The Colors Know.” Lead by the soaring vocals of Jonathan Burkes, the music is blended with programmed synth and smooth guitars from Rob Romano and features Ronnie Connell on drums. Together they are breaking new ground producing a very experimental post-rock and electronic tone. We are digging the deep and lush sounds that they have created and we think you will too! Take your chances and walk into the unknown…
Congrats Lauren Dair
