High Waisted is a NYC based band influenced by happiness, sparkles, Dick Dale, and doing whatever the hell they want. Fronted by the lively Jessica Louise Dye on vocals and guitar–it doesn’t matter how deep that dark pit in your chest goes, Dye’s voice warms up even the coldest heart!

Dye, guitarist Steven Nelson, drummer Jono Bernstein, and bassist Jeremy Hansen are currently on their ‘Eat Trash Be Free’ tour hitting up places all over the U.S. When we spoke with Dye on the phone they were currently in Nashville waiting in line for tacos. This tour is for their album released this past march entitled “On Ludlow.”

The album is filled with catchy surf tunes that make you want to throw on your favorite outfit and bang your head like a teenager! Tracks like “Shithead” and “Party In The Back” have beachy guitar riffs, fun lyrics, and melodies that’ll make you see colors.

This is High Waisted’s first full-length album– entitled ‘On Ludlow’ since destiny brought them together on Ludlow St. in NYC. Dye says that she pulled from a place deep inside of her that she wasn’t able to get out during her teen years. She confesses that ‘On Ludlow’ has a younger, immature vibe–she even pulled inspiration from her very own teenage diaries.
