HighView are a power rock quintet from Canberra, Australia. Fusing uplifting and empowering melodies with a streamline stadium level chorus. Describing the problems we face in life, maintaining perspective when you need it most in order to develop your own true identity, the band’s brand new single is a defiant shout to be heard from down under. The band have big things in their sights for 2018 and have already shared the stage with In Hearts Wake, Starset and Voyager to name a few.

The band will be releasing a new EP called ‘Aftermind’ in the coming months. More details on that soon.

Matt Faulkner, frontman of HighView says this about the track.

“Simple life is about conflict, confrontation and control. It’s about trying to maintain perspective in heated moments and trying not to let yourself become absorbed in negative situations. The song also carries themes around the development of your own identity, how knowing who you are and what you value can help you stay focused in order to overcome complex issues, make tough decisions and simplify your surroundings.”
