Feverishly fascinating, “Harder To Justify” is a number with which Electric High show all their talent, honed also by playing in other groups such as Sahg and Emmerhoff and The Melancholy Babies. The sound exhibited in this single stands out for consistency, compactness and density, making us experience that typical exciting thrill that runs down the back when a genuinely rock piece starts.
In “Harder To Justify” we perceive all the chemistry that exists among the members of the band. Although it is a debut single, the tight and cohesive way in which they perform creates an exciting and empathic connection with the listener, one that grabs you by the throat and stomach right from the start and does not let go until the end of the song.
Inspired by sacred monsters like Aerosmith and Black Sabbath, Electric High know what they are doing, and they do it well. They show they know how to write a real rock piece, and they do it damn well. They know all the right strings to play, and make them vibrate with power and vehemence.
“Harder To Justify” is the perfect business card for Electric High, who give us a song that finds its most perfect explanation in the name of the band. A formidable, unmissable release, to be listened to repeatedly.
