LA-based band High Grass captures the feeling of yearning for one’s home and family in their new single “90 Miles.” Inspires by High Grass’ singer Kristina Miranda’s experience living in Havana, “90 Miles” captures the political tension between the US and Cuba. Built on propulsive percussions that clash with each other, “90 Miles” is a refreshing rock anthem that charges your adrenalines:
Speaking of the track, Miranda shared: “I lived in Havana for 5 years. Even though there was no internet at the time, and it was difficult to buy food, clothes, or a pack of strings for the guitar, it was magical. The Cuban people have such a strong spirit, positive outlook, and crazy energy. However, many of them are forced to escape their homeland in search of a better life to support their families. While we lived there, we saw our friends leave and heard stories of how families were torn apart.
We wanted to shine some light on the situation in Cuba to show the world what is happening. During these hard times, I feel the song may resonate not only with Cuban people, but with anyone who is currently far away from their loved ones. We want them to know they are not alone.”
High Grass was formed in Havana in 2011 by Cuban guitarist and Grammy-nominated engineer Marciel Miranda and Armenian-Russian vocalist Kristina Miranda. The band will be sharing a video for “90 Miles” soon, so stay tuned.
