Hey everybody,

Here is our first single, Northwest High! A song that took two days over six years to write. We are excited to share our genre: Northwest Vibes with you all. Enjoy and stay tuned for more releases.




'Round here the wind cries Jimi,
Coming through the trees oh can't you hear it? can't you hear it?

'Round here the rain feels like Kurt,
All that angsty teen spirit soaking in your shirt.

Don't be alarmed if the sun don't come, don't come.
The rain'll have you clean before it's done.


I don't know if it's the way that we ride and
I don't know if it's the way that we vibe and

I don't know if it's the way we live life but
baby I can tell you it's that Northwest high.

and ahh yeah yes I'll be alright
Long as I got some green in my pipe and

Oh girl you lookin' outta sight
so Won't you tell me baby what we doing tonight? an.


'Round here all the good times are killing me.
Like the curious cat choking on a modest feast.

Have you ever sat and heard the thumpin'
and bumpin' of the streets?
You can see how Mix and Mack found their beats.

Have you ever seen a sea of trees forever green?
Flowing over the mountains and into the city?



'Round here all the bells ring Bing (bing, bing, bing, bing)
Calling out all the melodies of our dreams.

When it comes to singing the Vedder the better.
We tend to our music like a garden of sounds.

(Synth Solo)

Chorus (x2)
