Track: High Highs cover College’s A Real Hero, plus US tour dates.

Australian duo High Highs a.k.a. Jack Milas and Oli Chang have been bringing delicious electro to parties basically everywhere. They’ve toured with Vampire Weekend, Empire of the Sun and How to dress well. In addition they’ve self released their debut album ‘Open Season’ earlier in the year, and they have an ep of remixes coming out later in the year.

They’ve taken College’s rather lovely original, A real Hero, from the Drive Soundtrack, and they’ve done the equivalent of adding Vodka and Bailey’s. They’ve souped it up and added a little flair. Our Punch, frankly, was vile. But it had the same effect as High Highs new cover version. It made us very happy indeed.

The boys are heading out across the US with Stars, tour dates are below.
