“In addition to finger-picked guitar, swelling cello and tight, prismatic vocal harmonies, “Spirit Cold” boasts a bold, airy drum part that propels the song through the peaks and troughs of the arrangement.”
The Wall Street Journal
“[River Wider] is a pretty track with a nice cello line complementing a very catchy vocal melody, completing a folk-pop sound comparable to Sufjan Stevens or Fleet Foxes.”

Boston progressive folk duo Tall Heights have announced the release of their debut major label LP, Neptune, out August 19 on Sony Music Masterworks.Neptune is the follow up to 2015’s Holding On, Holding Out EP which was met with critical acclaim from outlets like NPR and Wall Street Journal who compared their emotive harmonies and poignant lyrics to the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Sigur Ros and Bon Iver. Of particular note is the track Spirit Cold, the lead single from the forthcoming release which has quickly reached over 5.6 Million streams on Spotify. Today, Stereogum has premiered the lush, winsome follow up single “River Wider”.

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 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 cell phones on “Cross My Mind.”
The band is on tour all Summer through Autumn including an opening slot for José González. See full list of dates HERE. For a taste of Tall Heights’ captivating live show, watch the band’s stunning live performance of album single “Spirit Cold”.
