Norwegian Duo TAPE TRASH Storm On New Blasting Belter ‘OLD HIGHS’

Daily electricity

21 November 2022

Who: The new project of Anders Magnor Killerud (Ludvig Moon, Kyss På Halsen, Team Me) and Kristofer Mathias Staxrud (Spielbergs, Hilma Nikolaisen, Ludvig Moon). They draw inspiration from the music they listened to when they first picked up their instruments as enthusiastic teenagers: Indie rock induced with infectious choruses, catchy guitar riffs, and huge drums. After an involuntary break due to the corona epidemic, they have spent the past year working on their debut album.

The sonic tandem describes the song as a result of listening to the soundtrack of Tony Parker’s Pro Skater as children. Intrusive guitars and hyperactive drums meet sugary pop melodies. The song embodies a more-is-more mentality that exists in the space between pure ecstasy and a panic attack. Old Highs is written from the perspective of a fictional character who feels washed-up and tired but still clings to his faded youth and broken dreams.

TUTV: Expect a multi-layered, towering and schizophrenic wall-of-guitar-electricity propelled by a pushing rhythm section. When they take the decibels a bit down it’s
only a foreplay moment for a stormy finale. Breathtaking stroke!
