Combining elements of prog rock, post rock, jazz and classical composition, Heights weave intricate nuances through textured soundscapes with a wonderful air of simplicity. Guitarist Al Heslop’s grand compositional vision, Bassist John Hopkins’ finesse and Jamie’s natural groove become a luscious flow of sound that is both beautiful and deeply detailed.
Produced by Al, 'Phantasia..' is full and majestic but also simple and raw; every pluck, slide and ghost note is crystal clear, as if you're sitting in the room with the band.
As their third record to date, ‘Phantasia On The High Processions Of Sun, Moon And Countless Stars Above’ is their most adventurous effort yet.
Al explains: "The new album is a culmination of four years work. The new album, to us, is more ambitious in terms of songwriting scope and we think the pieces sound more cohesive overall. We've steadily increased our confidence in pushing our playing abilities further and really pushing the 3 piece line up to utilise each aspect to the full, for example some main melodies are more bass driven, with bass taking centre stage and guitars accompanying."
On signing to Basick, Al continues: "We've been friends with the Basick guys for years and they've always been very supportive and enthuastic about what we do, so it seemed like a great time to work with them and we're really excited to be part of the family!"
Stay tuned for live dates coming later this year.
