Satica - Miss Yr High

Satica's song "Miss Yr High" unabashedly nods to drug culture with the metaphor of highness to being in love. The lyrics even cleverly go so far as to incorporate the idea of being "under the influence." Within the video and lyrics of the song there is a point where a sexual fantasy of stripping down in a parking lot is revealed. Satica stands front and center among three cars and clothes strewn akimbo. The song also begins with Satica reflecting that she can't forget being pinned to a wall by her love interest. This is certainly a song about desire and passion!
 
Musically, the song itself has something of a trance beat to it and as the chorus gets more or less into a loop towards the end of the composition Satica's vocals are then electronified which works for the overall tone. The song comes in at a fairly tight three minutes with a very succinct finale that hits you hard.
 
The video is directed by Brad Wong and you have to hand it to him for a moment in the video where the warning lights on the cars appear to be in a sequence like something you might remember from Stephen Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and maybe that is the point to "Miss Yr High" as a close encounter seems exactly what Satica is pining for.
