Music lovers, anybody ever heard of a band called Highly Suspect?

They are a local band from my town who we used to listen to at the Local bars and house parties. These guys are finally starting to make a name for themselves. I'm curious if people all around the country or world know of them yet? Here's one of their songs, the lyrics of which actually fit in nicely with the gag community. It's called My Name is Human.


Give a listen and tell me what you think.
thanks,
Sarah💟🎼🎤😊

This just in! My Name Is Human was just nominated for best rock song! Up against some serious heavyweights like David Bowie, Radiohead Metallica as well as other newcomers 21 Pilots.

What Guys Said 20

  • Never heard of them.
    The first one is borderline for my taste. The second has a nice intro, but should have the strenght of the first on some parts I think, otherwise, is too vanilla.
    Overall cool. I always find it dificult to like a song when someone tells me to listen to it, cause usuallt, I'm not on the right mindset. It usually works better, when you listen it associated with a situation, or listen it repeatedly casually.

    For instance, by the time I'm finishing writing this, I already like the second, more than when I stated a few lines above :D

      Thanks. I know what you mean. Glad you like. Hope u listen to some of their other stuff too. A cool cover song from the 80's I think called Send me An Angel.

    • 19d

      I just listened to the Scorpions one, and HS version.
      It sounds really relaxing... heaven like. Again at the beginning, I'd like more strength on the chorus, but by the end of the song, I prefer it the way it is.

  • Yeah, they play them on the station I listen to (I'm just north of you, btw) - they sang "Lydia", ne?

      Nice to meet you as well but you'll have to do more deductive reasoning to figure out where "home" is. lol.

  • it's alright, reminds me of 90's grunge.

  • Good stuff. I've listened to them before when their first record Lydia came out. Good ole American rock with a hint of bluesy. I like them a lot. Already downloaded this new album.

      They're brand new but just got written up in Rolling Stone as one of the best new bands to watch and their fist full album that came out Friday is already number 3

  • For a post grunge band these guys sound pretty good compared to the newer rock that I've heard recently. However, as far as I'm concerned, rock music died in the early 1990's and these guys seem to fall into that depressing, dark and doom trap that turned a lot of suburban kids away from rock and into hip hop. Personally, I think that every one of these newer bands should listen to some old Van Halen albums for some much needed inspiration. Lighter, fun subject matter and more ripping guitar solos would be a refreshing change of pace from this depressing shit. Nevertheless, these guys are good considering where they're coming from. And I can't believe that I'm actually waxing poetic for Van Halen...

      Listen to this one then,
      It could've come straight off of VH Women and Children First from 1980

      That's great about My Name is Human, although I don't really think the Grammy's mean very much concerning musical quality. It's a popularity contest and a way for some bands to get name recognition and to reach a wider audience. Been listening to early Monster Magnet on Youtube over the last two days. They were very good on their first 3 albums! You should check it out...

      Ha. That's great. They've been in my local radio station for a couple years now but that's just because of the local thing. I figured they must be getting bigger when they showed up on an Apple Music rock playlist. Which was really exciting. Where are you located?
