Canadian four-piece rock band Wicked Sadie just dropped their first-ever release, "High Road", today. A four-minute number, the song is mainly driven by lead singer and guitarist Jason Rahel's emotive vocals and the group's melodic instrumental finesse.

Inspired by doomed relationships, the track is a graciously paced raw-sounding alt-rock piece whose lyrics center around reminding listeners that sometimes it's okay to just leave things be and… in their own words: "F*ck it."

"'High Road' is a solo release that we plan to eventually feature on our first EP in 2021," wrote the band in a statement, revealing that a second song called "Destruction" is on deck.

Alongside Rahel are bassist and vocalist Kirk Robinson, guitarist Rudy Howell, and drummer Jesse Hansen. Together they fuse indie rock, pop, and blues to create captivating hooks that are easy to recall.

The garage clique formed in Edmonton, Alberta, in 2018. The name Wicked Sadie, according to them, is a subtle nod to a line from blues guitarist Rory Gallagher's song "Tattoo'd Lady".
