You should definitely check out this band!

So the band is called Highly Suspect and it is formed by three members. As this is not a wikipedia page, but my personal blog, I’m not going to write the story of the band, but my story on how I got into them and how they affected me.

It was 8th of December and I was on a student’s party in one really big cabin in the middle of the forest. At the time I was living in Sofia and two of my roommates invited me to this party. When I first started living in Sofia, I had no friends at all and for really short period of time, these two guys became my best friends. We listened to music, talked about life and stuff and always cooked something yummy. So back to the story.. basically my mind was always on the theme of universe, existence and why are we here on earth? So me and my best friends went into the woods at 2AM and got high.   We started talking about the Mother Nature and how we belong there and not in the “civilization” we builded ourselves and lost connection to the universe.

A couple of hours later we got back in the cabin and I decided to listen to some new songs that Spotify recommended me. This was the moment I found a song called “My name is human”. Basically the song is about how we “humans” came down from the stars and how we should remember and find out who we are and how special we actually are. These were exactly my thoughts at the moment and it definitely hit me very hard.

“Get up off your knees, boy
Stand face to face with your God

And find out what you are
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)

I’m up off my knees, girl
I’m face to face with myself
And I know who I am
(Hello, my name is human)
I stole my power from the sun
I’m more than just a man
(No longer disillusioned)

As far as I understand the song from my perspective, we should remember who we are and we should not let society and government control our thoughts. We are more that that.

A few months later I decided to hear more stuff from them and they really surprised me with their bold lyrics and how straight to the point they are. Also something that hooked me was their mixed style of music and how theirs songs are not one and the same. Every song of theirs is very different from the others and that’s something that not many bands do nowadays.

I advise you to go look them up and give them a chance! You might not like them that much at the first place, but you’ll understand their music as you keep listening them.
