After hearing the ghostly sound of Tall Heights
, we knew we had to take our latest session in a slightly different direction than usual. It's a wonderful, collaborative thing when the artist we're working with makes music that's powerful enough music to impact the direction we take stylistically.
The Boston-based progressive folk act blew us away when they visited Baeble HQ. Tim Harrington played an acoustic guitar while Paul Wright added a cinematic edge with his cello over shimmery percussion. The two harmonized for nearly the entirety of the performance, making it feel like one big, fulfilling exhale, something that Local Natives
or even Bon Iver
would be proud of. As they played songs "Spirit Cold," "No Man Alive," and more off of their 2016 LP Neptune,
a wave of chills washed over the office. The music is eerie and, for lack of a better word, pretty, but it doesn't lose that euphoric feeling that we love so much. Every song feels like an anthem, as they weave through meticulous details like the velocity of each guitar strum.
What you're about to enjoy is a gorgeous black and white video with crisp contrast and gorgeous music. Beautiful and dramatic.
