Relationships are hard and there’s no way around it. Beloved indie rock band Kuwalla rocks even harder in their new hit “Flying High,”. You feel the raw emotion from the start; written about the ups and downs of a relationship, “Flying High” feels the way it feels when your relationship hits a ‘low’ point after having been high for so long. With what started out as a voice memo on the lead singer’s Iphone, the song offers a refreshingly wavy surf rock vibe. The new sound for Kuwalla still caters well to their fan base of indie and alternative rock lovers.
“Flying high, no I won’t come down. Can we try? We can work it out”
Letting go of bad habits plays a huge role in making steps forward in any relationship. “Flying high” makes it clear that they’re ready to improve and to find compromise in order to make it work. Love is painful but with it, comes so much growth. The band does an incredible job of capturing the sadness that was felt when the song was originally written. The surf rock mood pairs seamlessly with the ebbs and flows of a tough relationship almost as if to replicate the ebbs and flows of ocean waves. Much like a relationship, the ocean can be scary and turbulent but ultimately, if you explore long enough, you’ll find that it’s filled with endless beauty.
“Maybe things will change, if I change my ways. Maybe change for good, hope that you would stay”
Starting in 2018, the LA-based band began playing shows up and down the west coast to test out their new-found beloved sound in front of LIVE audiences. Show history includes House of Blues, The Roxy, Resident LA and many more. Comprised of four versatile musicians, (Kyle Sain – Lead Vocals & Guitar // Brian Huynh – Lead Guitar & Vocals // Marty Griffin – Drums // Danny Leserman – Bass & Keyboard), the band grabs their musical influences from what they listened to growing up. The band has received praise from major publications like Medium, Substrea, Tattoo Magazine & most recently, The Hollywood Tribune. From Indie Alternative to Hard Rock to Blues, they hope to take the music of their environment, modernize it, and share it with the world for years to come.
