We are GREAT HIGHWAY

Over six years and four albums, Great Highway has developed a signature brand of dark electropop that seamlessly blends pumping electronic sounds with analog instrumentation. Their earworm songs pack venomous and sorrowful lyrics together with lush, moody vibes similar to Rüfüs du Sol, powerhouse male & female vocals a la Chvrches, and dance-y yet sentimental arrangements similar to ODESZA.
