Boston duo Tall Heights will release their forthcoming album Pretty Colors For Your Actions October 5 via Sony Music Masterworks – pre-order available now. Premiering today and included in album pre-order is a brand new track from the group entitled “Midnight Oil,” available to stream everywhere now. “Midnight Oil” is one of four tracks included with pre-order, alongside lead single “The Deep End,” and previously released songs “Not Like It Was” and “Fire Escape.”
Co-produced by Oliver Hill and Steve Wall (both of whom worked with the group on their 2016 LP Neptune), Pretty Colors For Your Actions finds the duo of Tall Heights exploring a range of musical influences and emotions. The 11-track album is underpinned by the duo’s signature melodies, layered and shaped with live instrumentation 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” & “Not Like It Was”) to hook-laden, synth-heavy numbers (“Oslo” & “White Frost”) to sprawling jams (“Over Now”) and philosophical trips (“Roanoke”). A foundational song for the album, lead single “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, today’s news arrives just days before Tall Heights joins Ben Folds and Cake on their August run of amphitheater dates. Kicking off this Monday 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 will continue their robust live schedule with a September run of dates alongside Colony House and their own headlining North American tour this October. 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.
