Pretty Colors For Your Actions CD With Autographed Booklet
The new album from Boston band Tall Heights, Pretty Colors For Your Actions, finds the duo, Paul Wright (cello and vocals) and Tim Harrington (guitars and vocals), exploring a range of musical influences and emotions. The album, co-produced by Oliver Hill and Steve Wall (both of whom worked on Tall Heights 2016 album Neptune), is underpinned by the duo’s signature melodies, layered and shaped with live instrumentations and contemporary production to create the sonic universe that is Pretty Colors For Your Actions. The songs range from hard-hitting ballads (“House on Fire” and “Not Like It Was”) to hook-laden, synth-heavy numbers (“Oslo” and “White Frost”) to sprawling jams (“Over Now”) and philosophical trips (“Roanoke”). The lead single from the album, “The Deep End,” is both buoyant and upbeat, yet clouded by a feeling of darkness, a conflict of emotions further explored in “Midnight Oil,” from which the album’s title is taken.
Having spent the better half of 2018 touring across the globe, Tall Heights joined Ben Folds and Cake on their August run of amphitheater dates. Kicking off in their hometown of Boston, the tour marks the second time they’ve played alongside Ben Folds, who hand-picked the duo to be part of his backing band as well as opener. Tall Heights continues their robust live schedule with a run of dates alongside Colony House and their own headlining North American tour this fall. The Pretty Colors For Your Actions Release Tour will bring Tall Heights’ highly-anticipated new music to fans in over 35 cities, with stops at The Roxy in Los Angeles, Washington DC’s U Street Music Hall and Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg before a hometown finale at Boston’s Royale.
