There are several reasons you might be familiar with the Detroit band the High Strung.
Perhaps you know them from their bouncy garage ditty “The Luck You Got” (taken off their 2006 album Moxie Bravo), which soundtracks the theme song to the Showtime series Shameless. Or maybe from the shows they played at Guantanamo Bay, which they described to Vanity Fair as “like Detroit or L.A.”
There’s also a chance you remember them for their library tours, which This American Life chronicled in a segment titled “The Dewey Decibel System.”
Now you’ll know them from their catchy, Kinks-y new song “On Your Way Up,” taken from their upcoming album ?Posible o’ Imposible? (out April 17). The track, bowing exclusively on EW.com, tells the story of a man who, unlike the William H. Macy patriarch of Shameless, is riding the crest. Give it a spin below:
