Cuban Alt-Rock Band High Grass Yearns For Home On New Single "90 Miles"


90 Miles Music

On December 4, Cuban alternative rock band High Grass reveals their new single, “90 Miles.” Referencing the distance between Key West, Florida, USA, and Cuba, the song reflects the strained political relationship between the two countries. “Its title symbolizes freedom for some and an insurmountable distance for others,” according to lead singer Kristina Miranda. The release follows the band’s recent EP, The Black Door and represents a transition for the band—
and also marks the start of a new chapter in their career.

High Grass, now based in Los Angeles, fortifies emotional connections to their home on “90 Miles.” Capturing listeners’ imagination from the outset, the track opens with gentle melodies like a calm sea, then the storm hits: driving guitars and percussion come crashing in behind the lead singer’s mesmerizing vocals. “90 Miles” is meant for anyone who is far away from their friends and family. The new single was mixed by multi-Grammy Award-winning engineer Jacquire King
(Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Cold War Kids), who first saw potential in the band.

When speaking more on “90 Miles”, Kristina explained
“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 apart from their loved ones. We want them to know they are not alone.”
