US progressive folk duo Tall Heights have release Horse to Water as the first single to be lifted from their debut major label LP Neptune, out March 2017 on Sony Music Masterworks. Watch here
The track is a perfect introduction to the band, showcasing their hallmark warming and emotive soundscape as well as their distinctive dimensional harmonies. It is little wonder that US media including the Wall Street Journal have drawn comparisons to artists such as Simon & Garfunkel, Sigur Ros and Bon Iver.
The multi-talented singer songwriters, composers, and instrumentalists featuring Paul Wright on cello/vocals and Tim Harrington on acoustic guitar/vocals got their start busking on the streets of Boston, growing up in a neighboring town in Massachusetts. Neptune as an album is a far lusher construct than those early acoustic days — along with pristine and emotive vocal harmonies, there’s subtly chugging electric guitar and a spare descending bassline on “Iron in the Fire,” ethereal synthesizers and a spacious drum part on “Spirit Cold,” a brittle splash of percussion to open “Backwards and Forwards” and feedback created by two cellphones on “Cross My Mind.”
Tall Heights made their UK live debut recently, performing a packed headline show at London’s The Slaughtered Lamb, as well as supporting Newton Faulkner at the iconic Union Chapel to a great reception.
