Higher Education’s “Gift Called Life” is a ska/reggae-fueled effort that ties together 311, Sublime, and Incubus into a catchy and intense bundle. The charisma of the vocals and tautness of the band immediately draws fans in, while the dynamics established through Gift Called Life makes converts to the Higher Education cause. This single is hooky, draws upon the mid to late 1990s while having a current and contemporary sound, and its melodies will bounce around one’s heads long after the song ceases to play. Higher Education sound like a veteran band at this point, and we’re excited to hear more from them.
