Boston duo Tall Heights dives into the emotional crisis we often experience during the most vulnerable moments of our lives (think midnight, in the shower, hungovers, awkward silence) in their new track “Midnight Oil.” It’s a slow-burning euphoria that takes you on a lightly melancholic dance that is weirdly comforting. With breathy choruses that are embedded in the background, “Midnight Oil” really channels the emotional fogginess we often place ourselves into:

The track is from their upcoming album Pretty Colors For Your Actions, which will be out on October 5th. Comprised of Paul Wright and Tim Harrington, Tall Heights have amassed more than 130 million streams and toured around the world with artists such as Ben Folds, CAKE, Judah & the Lion, and more. Their North America headline tour will start in October, so get your tickets here.
