The High Strung, “Maybe You're Coming Down With It”

Midwest bands have always possessed a knack for blurring genres. When Cheap Trick pierced pop’s consciousness in the ’70s, the quartet were branded power pop, new wave, hard rock and even heavy metal. The High Strung, a Detroit group that now calls Brooklyn home, pull off a similar feat. Halfway through “Maybe You're Coming Down With It,” it’s not altogether clear whether these dudes make garage rock, post-punk or, once again, power pop. Singer Josh Malerman caps off the confusion with a clipped falsetto that betrays an adolescence steeped in the joys of Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy. -- Justin Farrar
