Yestergraves EP

by The High Dials

Bye bye now Bad old days My, my how I tend to overstay You of a million blank eyes You with no voice for replies I’m well aware the dead won’t be raised By some clever turn of phrase I’ve laid too many wreaths on that grave Yesterdays, yestergraves Now is now is what I fell into Now is gonna see me through to now again Here is where I get my fix Here is at my fingertips You tie the days into a noose Who’s gonna come and cut you loose? We live in the life that we choose not yesterday But I wish you so much luck When the jaws of the trap have shut And you find your leg is stuck in yesterday Yestergraves
Can it be true? Where there was one of me now there are two Just like the others you thought you knew who Split down the middle and changed into Someone completely new You never look in your mirror When the picture is clearer Next time you look in your mirror Look closely for your twin (He’s kith and kin The trouble you’re in When hope is pinned On my evil twin) It's my double causing so much trouble Undermining my best-laid plans From hidden spaces, he keeps trading places Be sure you're talking to the real man


Released as a precursor to "In the AM Wilds", this EP unveiled a new direction for the band, featuring different mixes from the later album versions and mastered to cassette for maximum analogue feel.

"'Yestergraves' is psych introspection – pensive and distant with an out-of-focus air. 'Echoes and Empty Rooms' combines shimmery, dream-like melodies with the vibe of a classic 80s throwback. 'Evil Twin' shows a darker side to the EP, with offset electro hiccups, sinister vocal echoes and a synth that sounds like Kraftwerk gone rogue." The Upcoming (UK blog)

The High Dials returned in 2018 with a new line-up and the “Foreverish EP”.

After a UK tour in 2019, they unveiled a new LP in two parts. “Primitive Feelings, Parts I & II” is a predatory summer mix of lo-fi 90s grooves, acid rock guitars and razor-sharp humour.

In a 4-star review, Shindig Magazine praised its “heady, intoxicating set of tunes which reveal hidden depths with each listen”.
