Genre-bending indie band The High Plains Drifters have released the first single “Since You’ve Been Gone” off their forthcoming second album about love and loss.

The track, which tiptoes between neon synths, airy bass, and a glitchy beat, was inspired by a particularly painful breakup when frontman Larry Studnicky was still young enough to believe in the theory of the ‘one and only’. His girl dumped him, broke his heart, and forever disabused him of that notion but the pain inspired “Since You’ve Been Gone” and captures the utter feeling of disbelief after your significant other leaves.
“With Valentine’s Day coming up, the new High Plains Drifters single, ‘Since You’ve Been Gone,’ is for everyone who’s had their hearts ripped out of their chests and stomped on by the person they wrongly believed was THE ONE and couldn’t admit to their friends what had happened for the longest time,” shared Studnicky. “Thank God we learn from those mistakes! The song is a great introduction to the sound that’s prevalent on our forthcoming 2nd album.”
