HIgh Highs covered College’s “A Real Hero” from the ‘Drive’ soundtrack, opening for Stars on tour (dates & stream)
by Bill Pearis
Australian ethereal folky duo High Highs (who play as a full band live these days) will be on tour starting later this month, grabbing the support slot for Stars' upcoming tour which hits the NYC area at Asbury Park, NJ's Stone Pony on October 4 and Huntington, NY's The Paramount on October 5. Tickets to both shows are still available. All dates are listed below.
The band, whose very nice debut LP came out early this year, have been performing a cover of College's "Real Hero" (from the Drive soundtrack) for a while now but have just recorded a studio version. Their take on the song is also on the synthy side, but definitely more expansive than the minimal original. You can stream it below.
