about

The latest single, Highrise, from duo Smith & Jones was recorded live around an old grand piano at The Boatshed in O'Connell in regional NSW. Sung in two part harmony throughout, Highrise features a layered chord pattern that anchors the sweeping melody, and a hand picked choir of their peers. This song represents Smith & Jones' new musical direction and their desire to always emphasise the performance and songs while maintaining the connection and rawness that epitomises their work.

lyrics

I’m gonna move to New York City
Live inside a highrise
Look down my nose at all the women so pretty
Drink wine in the nightime
And when I get there you know I’ll be well read
And when I get there you know I’ll be witty
In New York City

I’m gonna move to California
Live beside the ocean
Bathe every morning in salt water
Get myself a sun tan
And when I get there you know I’ll be beautiful
Everyone will wanna know my secret formula for being happy
In California

I wanna get high
I wanna spread my wings
I wanna slip my skin
And slither into the cold heart of me
Beneath the moon
Into the ocean
Sink like a stone into the sea
And let the cool water wash over me

I’m gonna move to New York City
Disappear within the skyline
Harden my hard to my shame and self-pity
And live inside a highrise
Live inside a highrise
