Amen Mustang – (The Shit You Say) When You’re High

After Aussie band Jenny Broke The Window went their separate ways in 2018, singer Sam Lathlean moved to London. It wasn’t long before he reinvented himself as Amen Mustang, a one-man band inspired by Mystery Jets, PNAU, The Maccabees and Passion Pit. Exactly one year ago, he released his debut single Someone To Somebody. It was followed by Isolation Tapes, an EP with three covers and a home recorded version of his first song.

Amen Mustang’s second single (The Shit You Say) When You’re High came out mid October 2020 in Australia. However, it wasn’t promoted outside that continent. Until now. British label Snowhill Songs is determined to make this the indie hit it deserves to be. And I think they’re right.

After an intro that sounds like a collection of samples, (The Shit You Say) When You’re High really kicks off with a driving bass line. Elsewhere, we hear spacey drum patterns, shimmering guitars, cutting edge synths, horns and layered vocals. Indietronica meets downtempo rock. Cleverly produced by Xavier Dunn (Jack River, Slum Sociable, Sarah Wolfe), it sounds like an indie version of OneRepublic.
