My review:

  • My favourite song performed last night was definitely ‘Face In The Mirror’
  • I loved how Jimmy jumped off the stage and ran into the audience to make it look like he was stage diving into the audience. (please do more of this kind of stuff, crowds love it!)
  • Some good songs

Hiaground (Pron: Hi-A-ground) are a 4-piece indie-rock band from the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. Their song Direction is the first single to be released since Stories, a 7 track EP launched in 2017. The video clip for Direction is a very full on video with a lot of thrusting of the hips. So if you’re allergic to hip thrusting, do not watch (haha).

The You tube video for Face In The Mirror was filmed at the famous Bondi Beach! As with my comments above; when you really get the crowd involved and share your enthusiasm it is infectious, but this isn’t something you can turn on and off and still expect the crowd to stay tuned in (with you). As a band you would have felt this connection  too. My advice is: when you are out to perform and entertain, take no prisoners! Push your own boundaries, and you’ll only ever achieve more than your hoped and dreamed of achieving. Cool boys, thanks for the great night.
