LOW ON HIGH
LOW ON HIGH is a scuzzy duo featuring Amy Davis on bass and vocals, and Jon Moritsugu on guitar, in a full-on blitzkrieg of noisy, drippy, glitter-dusted rock. Davis is daughter of jazz great Mel Davis, and the band has existed in some form since the early 1990’s. Live shows have been with Deerhoof, The Gossip, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and many others. Originally hailing from San Francisco, Moritsugu and Davis moved further west, relocating to Honolulu. There they were voted “Best Local Band” by The Honolulu Weekly reader’s poll. Then they got evicted. After spending a few years in the gloomy Pacific Northwest and being picked up by an upstart Seattle label that subsequently imploded, LOW ON HIGH moved to the New Mexico desert. Their newest release is a 9-song EP, “Ice Cream Sex,” recorded at Frogville in Santa Fe.
“DIY and free spirited, LOW ON HIGH is very reminiscent of early ’90s lo-fi pop rawk, and inspired by the likes of Sonic Youth, Jesus And Mary Chain and grrrl punk. Noisy distorted tunes with a candy crunch core and glamor puss accessories.”
-AQUARIUS RECORDS (San Francisco)
“Blending the crunchy-scratchy guitar atmosphere of a good Bikini Kill vinyl album with elements of ’80s hardcore punk, New Wave, Siouxie Sioux, Cibo Matto, Joy Division, and The Breeders, LOH is the musical equivalent of a hyperative child born to postmodernist author Kathy Acker but raised in the Hotel Chelsea by Romeo Void and The Melvins”
-PASATIEMPO SOUNDWAVES (Santa Fe)
"In a time when most bands have a sickening
watered down sound, Low On High tears
through your speakers like a breath of fresh air.
Think Sonic Youth + Jesus and Mary Chain
only sexier." - Color Ink Book
