Soul Structure, the debut LP from UK-based hardcore outfit Higher Power is out this week through Flatspot Records and Venn Records. In celebration of Soul Structure‘s release, the band offers their new official video, created for the LP’s Four Walls Black. You can watch the clip in full below!
Higher Power’s unique sound, bridging old-school attributes with contemporary stylings – with comparisons ranging from Leeway to Jane’s Addiction, Cro-Mags to Life of Agony rolling in -~is both intriguing and infectious.
Bursting with old-school NYHC groove and West Coast crossover, Higher Power’s Soul Structure LP is about positive expression of aggression and a form of escapology. It is angry music – but lyrically they convey a lot about themselves as people. It’s about finding a positive outlet for their anger, whether it’s social issues or mental health, it’s adding a social consciousness and depth to what traditionally is considered quite a one-dimensional genre of music. The album was recorded by Misha Hering at Holy Mountain, with vocals recorded by James Atkinson at Mutiny Studios. The album was mixed by Arthur Rizk at Salomons Gate (Power Trip, Mizery, War Hungry) and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust); it features artwork by Sam Bailey.
