Album Stream: JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound - "I Got High" 7"
Last fall, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound released their second full-length album, Want More. Following up on their success, the has released a limited edition 7” record, featuring “I Got High” and “River.”
JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound bring a high energy and soulful sweetness to their music in a big way. Their songs, however, are more than just catchy tunes. “Despite being an up-tempo dance number, “I Got High” was written in that post-break up period where you’re just in a haze,” the band explains.
“It’s about making a decision to party instead of feeling bad it makes for good dancing because it’s a dance song that’s aware that sometimes you hit the town to celebrate life and other times to escape it.”
Only 500 copies of the seven inch will be available, which you can listen to in the embedded player below. You can purchase the record here, and don’t forget to check out the band’s tour dates after the break.
