New Release: Moral High Horses

Here’s a Halloween treat for all you trick or treaters- San Francisco’s own Moral High Horses released their debut EP this month. Released October 13th, the 4 track EP is an outstanding debut, brimming with Beatle-esque psych pop that keeps a decidedly modern edge. These don’t sound like the songs of a band’s first release- each track is beautifully written and thoroughly constructed.

According to a recent post to the band’s facebook page, “We’ve been holed up for nearly a year recording this EP going through bouts of frustration and depression, moving mics inch by inch chancing better sounds, working with limited resources and equipment, breaking said resources and equipment and suffering brief stints of cabin fever but, finally, we get to share…with you and that makes it all worthwhile”.

A stunningly creative video for the EP’s first track, “In Other Shoes” was released earlier this month. Watch below:

Sheena Salazar was raised in a rock n roll household- almost everything cool that she knows she learned from her dad. She spent some time playing organ and bass in bands, but stopped to pursue a career in fashion, both as a model and a designer. Sheena has always been extremely passionate about both music and fashion, particularly from the 60s era. Her enthusiasm for music as well as her connections to music scenes all over the west coast led her to joining the POW team in 2016, writing record reviews and covering shows such as Portland’s Nuggets Night. She currently splits her time between her day job at a bra company, working as a model, and writing for POW. Sheena resides in Portland, OR but she’s constantly traveling all over the west coast, and tries to find record stores, vintage shops and hip live shows wherever she goes. The only thing she digs more than music is her dog, Sue.
