Tall Heights Kickoff Summer with “The Deep End”
Boston locals, Tall Heights released their latest single, “The Deep End” on Friday. After wrapping up their 40-date US Winter/Spring tour with Judah & the Lion and Colony House last month, Tall Heights kicks off their summer with 30+ new tour dates and festival stops beginning June 2; sharing the stage with acts like Magic Giant, Ben Folds, and CAKE. Beginning today, the band is offering fans a chance to win a free pair of tickets to their North American tour dates via contest app, Tunespeak.
Of the new track, the band says, “At its core, ‘The Deep End’ is a song about the willful metamorphosis of the mind and body from something that you are into something that you probably shouldn’t be. It can happen in a moment or slowly over decades, but it seems there’s a surprising amount of comfort on a slippery slope… We wanted the track to mirror how we felt when we wrote it: sad and terrified, but still smiling lots and bumping to the beat.”
Earning comparisons of their emotive harmonies and poignant lyrics to the likes of The Shins, Local Natives, and Lord Huron, the multi-talented singer-songwriters, composers, and instrumentalists are Paul Wright on cello/vocals and Tim Harrington on acoustic guitar/vocals. They grew up just outside of Boston and got their start busking on the city streets, eventually raising enough to fund their first EP. Tall Heights has since received outstanding accolades from the likes of SPIN, Stereogum, NPR, Paste, The Wall Street Journal, and Fuse.
