North Highlands are one of Brooklyn’s most promising new indie-folk bands. Their 2010 Sugar Lips EP gave us a taste of their talent, as Brenda Malvini’s sweet vocals and keys are accompanied by a full band of accomplished musicians. In October, the band released their first full length album. Wild One is the full realization of those talents, as eleven-song album features infectious and expertly crafted melodies. At the Cameo Gallery on Saturday of CMJ week, North Highlands played in the middle of the bill but brought out a fine crowd for their 4 pm set time. The band’s short set featured five Wild One songs, and one apparent new song. We are streaming “Bruce” which features an irresistible hook that is spiced up with a nod to Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark”. North Highlands have two upcoming gigs, on November 17 at Shea Stadium and December 15 at Glasslands (PopGun Presents Holiday Party!).

I recorded this set in the same manner as the previous posts from this show. The vocal microphone was problematic for the first two songs so that the lead vocal levels are low, but ultimately reach the appropriate volume. With that caveat, enjoy!

Stream “Bruce”:
