At the core of The High Loves sound is an ability to take a classic songwriting approach, but not get stuck in a fog of retro sensibilities. Their mission is simply to perform the music that their passions inspired. Not overproduced and without gimmicks, but raw and genuine.
Their lyrics inspired by the lifestyle and experiences of lead singer and songwriter Noah Monckton, drummer Mathieu Landry, bassist Matt Bawtinheimer, and lead guitarist Marko Stojanovic, The High Loves showcase their ability to stay true to the music, and to provide an original and memorable experience. Their style is a mix of old and new, both retro and modern. To say a combination of The Beatles and the Strokes might be accurate, but that’s only on the surface. There’s a world of rock influence hanging in the background.
From The Artist: “You Already Knew That has a lot of emotional weight behind it. This song is about an inner conflict Noah Monckton was having when he decided to break up with his girlfriend who he was still in love with to further pursue his music. He was wondering if it was really the right thing to do. He knew that he’d really miss her. Writing this song allowed Monckton to reconnect with that experience in a way that enabled him to move on.”
