Event Description


Getting there is half the fun, as the old saying goes, but the journey is really the whole point for Boston electrofolk duo Tall Heights and singer/guitarist Tim Harrington, along with singer/cellist Paul Wright, have had one hell of a journey.

Founded in 2009, the duo got their start busking on the streets of Boston. After releasing a pair of independent EPs in 2011 and 2012, Tall Heights dropped their debut full-length album, Man of Stone, in 2013. They expanded on their sound with their 2015 EP Holding On, Holding Out, adding drums, electric guitar, and keyboards into the mix. In 2016, Tall Heights released their major label debut, Neptune, to the acclaim of critics and fans alike.

Backed with pristine vocal harmonies and splattered with musical surprises, Neptune is clearly the product of a long journey, but whether it’s Tall Height’s final destination remains unclear.  “I can hear the evolution happening,” says Harrington. “I feel like we’re walking across a bridge from one place to another, and maybe I’ll always feel that way, but I’m really happy with how we’re moving.”

Drawing from both progressive-folk and electro-tinged indie pop, the duo’s evocative, atmosphere-driven pop sound lends to comparisons to artists including Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Arcade Fire, and Sufjan Stevens, amongst others, but Tall Heights undoubtedly creates a sound all their own.

Indie-folk singer/songwriter Old Sea Brigade and indie pop band Frances Cone will support the show.
