High Tension

n early 2013 – almost out of nowhere- a music video landed on the internets and furiously peddled its way around social media, with the speed of a Lolcats meme circa 2010. ‘High Risk, High Rewards’ was an unexpected uppercut straight outta left field. The riffage was demonic, demanding and frankly, hooky as shit. The vocals? Gloriously guttural, “like a circular saw made out of inverted crosses” (Hysteria Magazine). ‘Beautifully brutal’ Inpress Magazine agreed. High Risk, High Rewards demanded attention, respect and an instant Triple J add. With one song, Melbourne’s High Tension revealed themselves to be a powerful new force in Australian music. Rising from the ashes of treasured disco-punks Young & Restless, Karina Utomo (Vocals) and Ash Pegram (Guitar) recruited the bottom section of Melbourne dark rock stalwarts The Nation Blue (via bassist Matt Weston) and Love Like Electrocution’s Damian Coward, and made some beautiful noise together. Their crushing 7” vinyl release even prompted The Vine to suggest that the band were “killer now, but undoubtedly the best band of 2014”.
