HighSchool announce forthcoming second EP, Accelerator

27 February 2024, 11:47 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

The Naarm/Melbourne-raised post-punk project, HighSchool, have announced their forthcoming second studio EP, Accelerator, and unveil their latest single, "Doesn’t Matter".

Having spent the past three years polishing their sound across Melbourne, and their adopted home of London, the forthcoming EP Accelerator poses as a seamless continuation of the debut EP, Forever At Last, which was released in 2021.

"Doesn't Matter", the band says, "is a song about unrequited love. It’s about your beloved being unaware or uncaring of your affection and deep desire for them. It’s about longing and the places your imagination takes you when you yearn for someone”.

Directed by Henry Gosper and self-produced by the band, the accompanying "Doesn’t Matter" video provides another glimpse into HighSchool’s aesthetic universe. They share that “The video was shot over two days at three separate locations in and around the outskirts of Melbourne. We were trying to capture a modern Southern Gothic atmosphere with an Australian flair, taking inspiration from classic Australian Gothic literature and film as well as crime stoppers adverts and the T.V. programs like Highway Patrol”.
