Alberta Alt/Rock band THE HI-TOPS drop game changer “Change of The Season”
Single and Video of upcoming sophomore EP with SODEH Records.
The Hi-Tops don’t take themselves too seriously, and honestly never will, but Change of the Season is a massive musical leap for the band. More musically complex and more polished, the single will surely carry over the momentum from the band’s debut Ep “Whoever gets it, Gets it”. The song was inspired by lead singer and guitarist Kole Halvorson experimenting with pop and classical influences. As the rest of the band trickled into the jam space and learned their parts, within 30 minutes Change of the Season became a mainstay in the band’s setlist, and a song they are extremely proud of.
“The song highlights the impact of a leaving partner and the effect it has on an individuals entire world. It expertly contrasts a deeply saddening message with an upbeat party rock vibe that makes the listener want to sit back and contemplate, as much as they want to slam some beers and dance.” – Explains frontman Kole
The video was shot by Chris Wirth at Melodic Imagery photos at locations around Calgary, Alberta Canada. In terms of ridiculousness, this is the best we can do. With dramatic car chases, incompetent police officers, and two over-eager valets, the debut music video is nothing short of insanity.
The Hi-Tops are an alternative hard-rock band coming from Calgary, Alberta Canada. The band is known for its ability to provide a rowdy on-stage performance while showcasing a delicate sense of tenderness and precision. The Hi-Tops broke onto the scene in 2019 and within their first few months as a band they won the Cowboys Calgary Music Competition earning themselves the opportunity to open for one of the headliners at the Calgary Stampede (Due to Covid-19 cancellations this was unable to take place). Earlier that year they played Big Winter Classic, a Calgary festival that invites talent from all around the globe, and opened for acts such as Ron Gallo, Bully, and The Garry’s. Since then The Hi-Tops have been developing their craft and molding themselves as a high-profile act in the Calgary and Alberta Music scene. Selling out legendary venues such as the King Eddy, Palomino, and Union Hall Edmonton has garnered the band a reputation of having the most electric live show in town. In March 2022 the band released its debut EP which has accumulated almost 50,000 streams on Spotify alone and has been listened to internationally. The Hi-Tops are preparing to release their sophomore EP in March 2023.
