Tall Heights is an electrofolk duo from Boston. Consisting of Tim Harrington (singer/guitarist), and Paul Dumas (singer/cellist), the two have been compared to the likes of Justin Vernon and Fleet Foxes.
Having gotten their start busking the streets of Boston, they learned early to keep their songs to the essential elements to make them easier to perform on the street. However, with their latest release Neptune they changed the formula. Along with the familiar 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 are a calm in the storm we call life.
“There have been many bands in recent years that have employed beautiful close harmonies, but when you add the strings and the great songwriting, Tall Heights is a notch above the pack.” – WBEZ
“Call it simply gorgeous.” – WFUV
