With a name like The Hugs, you know you’re in for something upbeat. On “She Was High”, the Portland-based band creates infectious indie pop with leanings toward the gritty nature of garage. The song is adorned with tweeting birds, side-commentary from other band members, and creaking doors, adding something off-beat and unique to the song. With a fun guitar riff and poppy, hook-filled vocals, there’s a good chance you’ll have “She Was High” on repeat for hours.
