This installment of Band Of The Day are L.A duo Mary Pearson & Robert Barber aka High Places. They are renowned for their unique use of experimental music, fusing the best of electronic sounds with the organic acoustic and folk. Their new album ‘High Places vs Mankind’ is released on 23rd March on Thrill Jockey Records and is set to be a sure hit showing the band has evolved from their first self titled debut album from 2008. The first track ‘On Giving Up’ sticks to the traditional High Places sound with dark electronic beats accompanied by a haunting vocal from Mary and a subtle guitar riff that slips seamlessly into the track allowing the audience to lose themselves in the melody. ‘High Places vs Mankind’ is available to purchase via Thrill Jockey .
