They play authentic garage/psych with touches of folk rock - the sound is a blend of west coast byrdsy jangle and harder edged Texas punk!!
THeirinfluences, amongst others, range from THE BYRDS, LOVE, THE WEST COAST POP ART EXPERIMENTAL BAND, THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS, THE ELECTRIC PRUNES, THE GOLDEN DAWN, THE ZAKARY THAKS, THE REMAINS, THE MYSTIC TIDE, THE KINGS VERSES and all the thousands of great garage band 45's out there!!
The Higher State uses Epiphone, Farfisa, Fender, Harmony, Premier and Rickenbacker instruments; and endorses the Gibson Maestro Fuzztone pedal. (-via TheHigherState.com)
