TCTS – “These Heights” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Manchester dance producer TCTS released his superb These Heights EP last year, at which point we heard a pair of melancholy house cuts, the title track and “Over”. Now, to herald the arrival of a new “These Heights” remix collection featuring reworkings by Kry Wolf, Detroit Swindle and Greco-Roman Soundsystem, the original version of “These Heights” gets a video treatment. The clip features what appears to be a voyeuristic old-fashioned lass watching some kind of dancing mime character (no makeup, though) while a carefully styled uptight psychoanalyst takes notes. Or maybe I’m reading it completely wrong. Decipher for yourself — and enjoy what remains a stupendous song — below.
