“’I Am High’ represents the second emotion of our musical journey this year. We began the year with ‘I Am Sad’ which is usually the first of the emotions we tend to experience in times of difficulty. The progression from sadness for us personally usually ends up leading to escapism. This EP represents our frequent desires to run from the world and our problems by escaping reality through our many collective vices. People tend to hear the word ‘high’ and associate it with substance abuse, however, we all have a variety of vices we escape to on a daily basis (i.e. phone, social media, food),” explains MISSIO.

MISSIO—Matthew Brue and David Butler—tune into various emotions and channel bursts of energy into anthems across a genre-bending sonic spectrum. On I Am High,  the Gold-certified, prolific pair explore life in all of its glory.

I Am High Tracklist:

  1. Good Vibrations
  2. Easy
  3. Thang Thang (feat. DEADFOOT)
  4. Big Stacks (feat. Jelani Blackman)
  5. Papi Chulo
  6. I’m Coming Home

MISSIO materialized in 2015 evolving their indefinable sound across albums such as Loner [2017], The Darker the Weather // The Better the Man [2019], Can You Feel The Sun [2020], and VILLAIN [2022]. They accumulated over 1 billion streams, powered by bangers such as the Gold-certified “Everybody Gets High,” “Twisted,” “Bottom of the Deep Blue Sea,” “Sing To Me,” and “I See You.” They’ve sold out headline tours and graced the bills of festivals such as ACL & Lollapalooza, while earning acclaim from Atwood, BillboardRolling StoneNew NoiseSubstream, and more.

Following VILLAIN, Matthew and David simply never stopped writing and recording in their home base of Austin and in Mexico City in March of 2023, resulting in their previous cinematic EP I Am Sad, about processing your darkest moments and the feeling of depression, and now, their new easygoing EP I Am High, which is the second EP of an ongoing series of releases dealing with the human emotion.
