We've covered Tall Heights before—Paul Wright and Tim Harrington met each other in their hometown of Sturbridge through Tim’s older brother and have gone on to make music together as one of Boston's top Electronic / Indie Pop acts. Their upcoming full length release entitled "Juniors" delivers 12 attractive examples of their signature groove and features a blend of their two distinct voices in both harmony and unison.

As a juxtaposition of Paul’s lifetime of classical training with Harrington’s instinctual melodic spontaneity the union of their unique styles elevates their combined sonic imprint into a new category of collaborative electronic artistry. "Locked Out" immediately transports the listener into a dream-state of wistful memory, inviting us all to embrace the fragile and hypnotizing nature of our own secret desires. An engaging soundscape mixes elements of retro synthwave with an endearing sense of vulnerability as we explore the helplessness of romantic codependence. This sweet and magical tale ends with a message of hope as we learn that patience is a cornerstone of any successful union of souls. A spirited slide guitar solo touches on elements of Eastern modalities which, combined with hints of tube distortion, adds a bit of intrigue to this mid-tempo pop gem.

Come out and play
You know I'm your fool
Just a silly game, just another joke
Dancing in the rain, fire, and the smoke
You're down in a daydream
I'm after the truth
Circling the drain down the rabbit hole
Never landing where I could help you go

It's true, I thought a long walk would do
You're stuck in the mirror having hard talks
And looking at your opposite

And so it's like this, I'm going nowhere
One day we'll run wild with the wind in your hair
Well I'll stay right here when you vanish in there
I'm holding you now while I'm locked out
