High Rise Finale
When Matt Bailey enlisted Neil Ritchie to help produce the ‘They Must Have Seen Me Coming’ EP and subsequently the 'Delusions of Grandeur' LP by The Salient Braves, they both had no idea at the time that they would soon be collaborating on a completely new venture. In September 2017 they combined their writing and production talents along with backing and occasional lead vocalist to create “High Rise Finale’. Drawing from inspiration of 80’s electronic traditions, todays synth pop and adding modern, socially observant lyrics the band realised their first EP in 2017 My Left Hand Column followed by 'Loneliness' Single in February 2018. “The aim was to develop a classic electronic sound but with lyrics that paint a picture of some of the deeper and broodier side of society and the modern world we live in. We didn't set out to make any political statements, make judgements or rally for any specific causes. We simply wanted the project to be more about documenting and capturing our views on life around us. People can make their own judgements on the content. The lyrics are very important to us and the backbone of all the songs, but we also wanted to have a strong electronic synth orientated back drop. A bit of a conflict in some respects. We sort of imagined a foot tapping soundtrack while crying in your hands at the meaningful words. Maybe or maybe not, but Im sure a lot of people will get it and will relate well to the stories we are trying to tell”.
The third release from High Rise Finale, scheduled 10th April 2018
