One High Five an indie pop punk band from Long Beach, Ca lead by founder David Sauer and his love for ear candy, loud noises and fun. This "Stay or Go" marks the release of One High Five's second album, 'Beardlip'. On the album, David explores his experiences of enduring 5 lineup changes-a total of 20 members-over the course of only two records. David shares, "All these changes left me vulnerable with a warped sense of trust in myself and a stunted band. It's been a big personal journey to get this album out." By just listening to the imaginatively-arranged, arty, hook-laden music inherent in this collection, you feel like the indie-punk party will rage on, even if David is the last man standing. One High Five doesn't sugarcoat its truths, but it does sugarcoat its hooks. The band counts as inspiration infectiously catchy tunesmiths such as Green Day, King Tuff, NOFX and T-Rex. Sauer continues, "I'm glad I didn't give up. I don't think I could if I tried, to be honest. I'm hungry for the next project and can only hope that my story can inspire others to persevere."
One High Five has issued a self-released debut album, a clutch of singles, and been featured on various compilation discs, films and commercial spots. They have performed regionally and nationally, select live career highlights include appearances at CMJ and Broke LA.
