Yukon Blonde frontman Jeffrey Innes recently launched his new solo project High Ends as an adventurous new songwriting outlet. Prompted by an excess of time off the road and a burst of creativity, Innes took to an array of analogue synthesizers and wrote the majority of what would become Super Class fairly quickly. The resulting debut full-length album will be released October 7th via Dine Alone Records.
Having previously revealed lush album cut “The Weight” and the infectious “Downtown,” High Ends has now revealed the mid-summer psych-rock anthem “Intoxicated” strapped with rhythmic shifts and a catchy melody.
The ten-song LP was recorded with producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, The New Pornographers) at his Vancouver Island facility. During the sessions, Gold & Youth drummer Jeff Mitchelmore handled percussion, Louise Burns and The New Pornographers’ Kathryn Calder contributed backing vocals, and Ladyhawk’s Darcy Hancock laid down guitar.
