The High Pets infuse lead singer Becky Griffin’s soulful crooning with a rock-driven, experimental sound, creating hauntingly gratifying melodies. Bringing together veteran indie rock musicians who had gigged for nearly two decades in the Alaskan and Pacific Northwest music scene, The High Pets embody the quirky, vivacious indie rock sound and thought-provoking lyricism associated with The Shins, Modest Mouse, Fruit Bats and other kindred spirits from the same geographic area.
Their music is filled to the brim with subtle hooks, pop riffs and a fun, hummable side that keeps one coming back to The High Pets, along with a grittier, hard rock driven sound. Actively touring around Anchorage, Seward, Homer and other hotspots of the Alaskan scene, the band is also recording their next full-length in Portland, Oregon. Applauded for their “high energy rock and roll sound” by Anchorage Press, The High Pets are local sweethearts with huge dynamism.
