High Places (Live • Thrill Jockey)

“Despite the duo’s ambitious blending of genres, the colorful, charismatic High Places remains unique and focused, naturally absorbing a rich array of influences and ultimately thriving on the impulses behind them.” -Pitchfork

“Blending beats produced from household objects with reverb-heavy vocal repetition, LA’s electro duo High Places create hypnotic mood music that feels organic, in tune with the ever-shifting and evolving shape of nature. With three full-lengths on Chicago’s Thrill Jockey and almost incessant touring with the likes of Deerhunter and YACHT under their belts, High Places are fresh but resilient.” -Flavorpill

“High Places have moved on, positioning themselves on the fringes of the ongoing chillwave explosion with enough invention to outlast most of its central protagonists.” -BBC

“High Places could be dance music, it could be headphone music, it could be something to put under your pillow and fall asleep to, or it could be all of these things.” – Impose

“spins echoes of Giorgio Moroder, Blondie, and even early Cure into woozy, whispery disco that works equally well for babysitting and baby-making.” -SPIN

“Shock’s picture-perfect debut single “Heaven” is a sultry and seductive pop gem that does inherit its share of sweaty 2am Italo vibes but fortunately doesn’t stop there, culminating in a simply irresistible instrumental bridge that brings in a compelling layer of perfectly shimmering guitars.” -No Fear of Pop

“Shock’s spaced out, slow motion disco funk vibe is keeping me sane today.” -GITNB

“Shock specializes in live riffing and phenomenal grooves, evoking the feel of sleek electronic funk and warm emotional pop. The gentle brush of a wind-chime signals a mental journey from the pyramids to the ocean, where vocals and guitar are surrounded by warm synth layers, deep bass, and electric rhythms. The live Shock performance humanizes the dance-club and evokes a new-age experience that is both contemporary and classic.” -Disco Workout
