Tora – High Enough


Tora, a 5 peice band whose name is based on the Greek word ‘τώρα’ meaning now, just released a gorgeous new chillwave single called “High Enough” which according to group member Jo Lowenthal is about “missing somebody and feeling like the distance between you both is getting bigger”. With its subtle astoundingly-refined vocals and brightly-metered melodic charm “High Enough” highlights the unique, beautifully balanced sound of the unsigned New South Wales, Australia group who just began their European tour; that includes a June 28th gig at England’s Glastonbury Festival where they play along with a variety of new acts like the amazing Jack Garratt as well as some big names and classics like The Who, Pharrel Williams, and Glass Animals.
