Jeffrey Innes, frontman of Indie Folk-Rock band, Yukon Blonde has a new project called, High Ends. His debut track, “The Weight” only took half a listen before I realized I had to write a blog about it. Why? the song is no slouch, it delivers a poppy folk-rock sound with a catchy chorus. In the chorus he sings, “The weight is gone”… whatever weight Jeffrey is speaking of, I’m glad it’s gone, because it’s got me excited to hear more after hearing this track!

With Yukon Blonde on a temporary break between albums, Innes was back at home in Vancouver, but rather than spending his downtime relaxing, he launched the solo project High Ends as an adventurous new songwriting outlet.

“I initially wanted to do something that was really collaborative, so I wrote a bunch of songs with the idea of bringing friends in,” Innes remembers. “But all of my friends were on tour, so I ended up doing it myself.” tweet

This prompted a feverishly creative burst of unfiltered solo experimentation, with most of the material written quickly using an array of analogue synthesizers.
