High energy, high excitement, High Safari.
High Safari are an alternative/pop duo based in London. They formed their band in 2011 after realizing they shared a mutual love of Elliott Smith and The Shins. They make their own way though, which really shines on their new album Skylight.
Available to download for free on their Bandcamp page, the band has offered listeners a taste of their music via the video for “Hey Hombre!”. It feaures clips of surfers and zoo animals spliced together, which serves to mock the coldness of winter and remind us of warmer climates.

There’s a giddiness in there reminiscent of Matt & Kim, only amplified with a greater instrument base. Fans of the album can look forward to High Safari recording a new EP around Easter. Anyone in the England area should keep their ears waxed up, right along with their boards for their tour in the London and Brighton areas this summer.
