Detroit band The High Strung have been in the business for over a decade, finally getting recognition when their song The Luck You Got was used for the TV series Shameless in 2011. They have added it as a bonus track on their new full-length ¿Posible o' Imposible?. For band hailing from Motor city USA is makes semse to draw inspiration from Sixties garage bands, but their most prominent influence is the early (pre-Tommy) Who.

Psychedelic pop influences shine through in Rats, Rats, Rats and Model Boats. The High Strung have made an album that will in heavy rotation on many a baby boomer's birthday, while their offspring is being lectured at length about all the big names from yesteryear that the band is channeling.
