Tall Heights – “River Wider” (Stereogum Premiere)

Tall Heights have come a long way since funding their first album by busking on the street for 100 days. This August, the Boston duo are set to release Neptune, their major label debut, on Sony Music Masterworks, and today, we are premiering “River Wider,” the record’s first single. It’s a pretty track with a nice cello line complementing a very catchy vocal melody, completing a folk-pop sound comparable to Sufjan Stevens or Fleet Foxes. Check it out below.
