NE-HI is a four-piece rock band from Chicago. NE-HI formed to score a friend’s film in the summer of 2013, the foursome—made up of Alex Otake, James Weir, Jason Balla and Mikey Wells—recognized the chemistry between its four members and chose to continue making music. Since then, the foursome has toured the Midwest and East Coast, building a reputation as a promising young American band.
Known for their energetic stage presence, NE-HI has opened for Car Seat Headrest and the American Wrestlers. NE-HI's self-titled debut album was released in 2014 on Manic Static. In the Chicago Tribune, Greg Kot listed Ne-Hi as #4 in his top ten local indie albums list of the year. Despite being a fairly new band, sites like Noisey, Stereogum, and Paste have taken notice and consider the band to be "the best of what's next".
The band's second album Offers was released February 24, 2017 on Grand Jury Music. To help promote their second album, OFFERS, the band toured with Whitney, Chad VanGaalen, Twin Peaks, The Drums, as well as performed in the Pitchfork Music Festival and at SXSW.
