"The world is black and white. The sky is green."

Sydney's pinpoint guitar-popsters High-tails are thrilled to inform you of their new 2015 single "Information". A loose-limbed disco stomper that explodes into a squally guitar-solo coda, frontman Nicholas Griffith says of the song "It grew out of a dance rhythm we were jamming and has become our favourite thing to play in front of a crowd. We've been finishing our live shows with this with this track and afterwards people have been coming up smiling, saying 'That's the one! That's the banger!'".

The new single comes on the heels of some busy national touring for the band - they played a 10-date run supporting Brisbane crooners Millions in November/December, and more recently were handpicked by likely London lad Jamie T to open his sold-out East Coast shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

"Information" is the band's first fresh material since their debut EP "Sipping Tea To Make Music To Sip Tea To", which was released in October on Stop Start (Ball Park Music, Northeast Party House). It featured bona fide smash "Bending Over Backwards" which Aussie Playlist frothed "gets stuck in your head (and doesn't get out quickly)", and came in as the 29th most-played song on triple j last year. Its follow-up "Terrible Day" saw Happy proclaim "(they're) a band who set the bar higher each time ... every element of the song is too good to not get a mention in being f*cking brilliant". Both songs' heavy rotation also saw High-tails rank as 9th most-played artist on triple j Unearthed in 2014.

Throughout 2014 High-tails played further gigs across Australia supporting The Holidays, Northeast Party House, Major Leagues, Loon Lake, The Cairos and more. They also completed festival slots at Sounds Of The Suburbs, Blurst Of Times, Yours & Owls' 4th Birthday and Sydney Fringe. A recent AU Review report said of the band's live show "their enthusiasm and energy [is] intoxicating".

lyrics

Walk in the room. What do you see?
Information, a million shining seas
There is a groove. It's you and me
And then you start to glide away indefinitely
Don't help me
I wasn't told that I was where I'd like to be
The world is black and white, the sky is green
There are patron saints and yellow submarines

What do you see? It's mercury
Evacuation plans lead you to the beach
There is a revolution and it comes on fast
So now we're living in the future and listening to the past
The likes of you and me
Yeah, you know we move like flames passed from tree to tree
A million shining seas
We've got a reason to fight, a reason to preconceive

The world is black and white, the sky is green
I'm in love today but I don't know what it means
I got another feat and a reoccurring dream
I saw you leave the room in a haze of self-esteem
