Surf / Electropop / Trance NYC & LOS ANGELES,
High Places is Rob Barber and Mary Pearson. The two create danceable pop music that is both artistic and refined.
The ten tracks on Original Colors are full of driving bass pulses, syncopated dance rhythms, and the binding force of Mary's mezzo-soprano vocals. Recorded in the band's home studios in Los Angeles, the album is dotted with sun-drenched references to Australia's inimitable foliage, the expansive desert of Northern Mexico, and the crystal, blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Such allusions are presented over a bed of swirling stereo rhythms and infectious melodies. Each track possesses a unique texture and emotion that serve to create a variegated yet unified album of some of High Places' finest work to date.
Visual art plays an important role in Mary and Rob’s collaboration. The two make video projections for their stage shows, keep a photo blog that documents their travels (http://hellohighplaces.blogspot.com), and create their own album artwork. In this way and others, Mary and Rob challenge the conventional parameters of a rock band and instead give us a multisensory aesthetic partnership that continually defies expectations.
High Places has plans to tour this fall; bringing their sound to new environments, always in the hope of collecting experiences that will shape the evolution of their truly unique sound.
New album "Original Colors" is out now on Thrill Jockey.
