High Tropics’ new crunchy chugging tune You Never Made It Easy is described as being inspired by The Strokes, and it’s easy to say why. It certainly has that rugged drawl and infectious cadence that we love about the legendary garage rock band, but it’s also distinctly High Tropics. Despite its name, High Tropics has never made it easier to fall even deeper in love with their vibrant jangling, fuzzy purring sound. As some have already noted, the Australian band’s rock is also reminiscent of FIDLAR and Wavves, and it’s quite the foot tapping, head bopping extravaganza. You Never Made It Easy is only High Tropics’ third single, and we’re hoping 2018 brings a whole lot of fine new tunes from this band including a first EP. The single is out now on Roll Call Records. Stream via Spotify, here.

15 Years can’t be a more suitably named debut. Australia’s High Tropics,  fronted by Josh Stewart (formerly of The Ninjas), turns back the hands of time just about that many years with their first single. We return to the 2000′s with High Tropics to revisit a classic era when bands like The Strokes and The Killers were topping charts with some of their finest tunes. The Australian newcomers, who’ve just signed to esteemed label Roll Call, floods us with sweet nostalgia while serenading us with their propulsive thrumming, crunchy clinging garage rock. Highly addictive 15 Years also arrives with a vintage styled video, which you can watch below. The single is available from iTunes, here.
