High Jinx – Get Pretty Or Die Trying
High Jinx is an electropop duo based out of Toronto, Canada.
The band features Ranny Lee on vocals and Mark Moby Holman performing the music.
Moby has played in the Toronto scene in several loud guitar-based bands over the years but has always maintained a healthy obsession with electronic music. He was inspired after watching the BBC documentary ‘Synth Britannia’ to actually start a synthpop project.
Moby heard Ranny singing on a demo for another band and asked her to join this new project. There was instant chemistry – an exceedingly rare commodity in new bands.
Ranny’s youthful energy and fresh determination combined with Moby’s seasoned experience made for a perfect combination. Their sound fuses elements of retro ‘80’s synthpop with modern melodic electropop to create an immediately infectious sound.
They have just released their debut four-song EP and are currently gearing up for live shows.
2015 is the year for High Jinx!
