MUTUAL ATTRACTION

High Pulp proudly presents the MUTUAL ATTRACTION Spring 2020 Tour

It all began in 2017 when High Pulp emerged from a weekly “Funk Church” jam session at Seattle’s historic jazz club The Royal Room. It was here that High Pulp’s founding members discovered one another. An inexplicable force pulled the collective together to produce the high-octane jazz, funk, hip-hop, punk, psychedelic cocktail that soon became their debut album Bad Juice (released June 2018).

Then, in 2019, High Pulp’s orbit collided with three well-known Seattle-based R&B/soul artists - JusMoni, Falon Sierra, and Shaina Shepherd (BEARAXE) - bringing vocalists into High Pulp’s extended musical family for the first time. Each of these artists joined in writing and recording a track with High Pulp, and together the three tracks formulate the Light Fix EP (released Fall 2019).

Now, the story of MUTUAL ATTRACTION continues with a series of three EPs released throughout 2020 in partnership with Portland-based Dutch Records. Each track is a cover performed in a single live take, with the intention of honoring the original composition while also electrifying it with 21st-century synthesizers, pedalboards, and production in true High Pulp style. In the way that music is a grand tapestry of past, present, and future threads woven together, the MUTUAL ATTRACTION series explores what happens when an artist meditates deeply on the influential threads of their musical past and reweaves them into the musical present, repeatedly asking the question: “What if?”
