Golden Aquarians: “High Enough”

By: Jack Anderson

Once again it’s New Music Friday and today we’ve got the debut track from a just unfurled production duo. I’m talking about Golden Aquarians, a collaboration between songwriter-producer Sarah Jaffe and multi-instrumentalist-producer Roberto Sanchez, a relationship first forged between the two while on Jaffe’s SMUT EP tour.

Now settled into their home base in New York, today these Texans released their first offering under the Golden Aquarians handle, “High Enough”, featuring a pedal steel performance from Israel Nash’s Eric Swanson and a colorful, retro-sidescroller-inspired animated video to boot. And with Jaffe’s scathing take on apathy in the midst of disease and social unrest, all proceeds generated from “High Enough” will go directly to The Loveland Foundation, so cough up a couple dollars if you can for this surreal, sample-and-synth-soaked single!
