Memphis Stone and The Elevators - Higher


Memphis Stone and The Elevators just released their third single Higher, an uplifting tale of being completely off your face on a mountain side watching the world go on around you and questioning your part in it all, and having major drug-induced revelations. It's a fast-paced and upbeat rock song – it features soaring guitars and Hammond organ over solid driving drums and bass capped off with soulful vocals. All wrapped up with what is turning out to be a trademark modern production of Matt Hay (who's worked with Robbie Williams and The Who).


From its first crashing chord, this track does what it says – it lifts you "Higher". Not in a celestial way, but in a "grab you by the balls", "you have no choice” way. It has a "turn this one up” and “bang out the drum on the steering wheel" sound that'll make you run faster, sing louder and wake up that little bit of your soul that didn't hear the alarm clock this morning.

Its influences are diverse with hints of British new wave & 70s rock – think The Ruts meets The Killers meets Blink 182, with a hint of Tom Jones and Georgie Fame thrown in for good measure.

In one word : Excellent !!!
