It has been a hot week and to get us through the unbearable temps, Tall Heights has delivered an energetic tune worth dancing to.
The electro pop number, while upbeat and breezy on the outside, speaks to subtler feelings of wanting something you shouldn’t. This underlying wave of conflicted feeling provides a more nuanced take on the indie dance vibe that permeates both the track and the video. Matching its bright sonic character, the visuals follow a colorful party, where a knocked out crew of friends wake up to the duo’s singing, beckoning them to dance. On the meaning behind the track, the band says,
“At its core, ‘The Deep End’ is a song about the willful metamorphosis of the mind and body from something that you are into something that you probably shouldn’t be. It can happen in a moment or slowly over decades, but it seems there’s a surprising amount of comfort on a slippery slope… We wanted the track to mirror how we felt when we wrote it: sad and terrified, but still smiling lots and bumping to the beat.”
“The Deep End” is the first single off the duo’s upcoming sophomore album. Watch the video below and be sure to catch Tall Heights on tour this summer.
