Bio-The Heights
The Heights
The Heights, c’est la voix profonde de Owain Ginsberg (voix, guitares),
l’étonnant doigté de Pearse Macintyre (guitare) et le rythme irrépressible de
Chris Carr (guitare basse) et de Geraint Owen (batterie). Il en résulte un
rock mordant aux accents pop qui rappelle Led Zeppelin ou The Strokes.
Leurs chansons, qui allient des guitares solides et accrocheuses, des chœurs
planants et des rythmes enlevants, s’incrustent si bien dans votre tête que
vous ne pouvez plus vous en passer.
Trois des quatre musiciens sont originaires de North Wales en Angleterre,
excepté Pearse, qui vient de North London. Suite à leur première rencontre,
ils décident de louer une maison et de transformer le salon en studio de
répétion. Après un an de fête et de spectacles intimes, ils sont expulsés. The
Height habite maintenant où ils peuvent lorsqu’ils ne sont pas en tournée à
travers le monde, causant sur leur passage plus de vagues et de ravages que
jamais.
Au cours de la dernière année, le groupe s’est notamment illustré aux EtatsUnis où ils ont participé au South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival au Texas et
au Music Marathon and Film festival (CMJ) à New York, ainsi qu’au Japon, où
leurs concerts ont connu un vif succès. The Heights achève en ce moment
une importante tournée à travers l’Angleterre, où l’engouement qu’ils
suscitent les a d’ailleurs amené sur la première page du populaire magazine
The Fly.
“Ear-wreckingly loud guitars, star-humping melodies and vocals that sound
like dinosaurs rutting…Its blatantly obvious that the world is a better place
by their very existence. God bless The Heights” - James Jam, NME

pretenders and poseurs!' - THE FLY

THE HEIGHTS feature the deep growl of Owain Ginsberg (vocals, guitar), the astonishing
playing of Pearse Macintyre (lead guitar), and the irrepressable rhythm section of
Chris Carr (bass) and Geraint Owen (drums). They hail from Llanberis, North Wales,
except Pearse, who is from North London. The moment they met, they all decided to rent
a house together, turning the living room into a rehearsal room. A year’s worth of
parties and in-house gigs later, they were evicted. The band now stays where they can when they’re not touring, causing more of the havoc and arrests that seem to follow
them. Whilst on a recent US tour their good time music rocked SXSW and CMJ where they
became friends with The Zutons and The Kooks and landed in Spin and CMJ magazines!
THE HEIGHTS’ debut single led the band to early critical acclaim and spots on MTV Gonzo
(followed by the Gonzo tour), NME Chart Show, Brand Spanking New, KerrangTV, E4's
Freshly Squeezed, & The Amp. The band has since released single ‘Jamaica Beer Eyes’ and
the ‘Bad News’ EP. In support of these releases the band have done several headline
tours and supported the likes of Editors, The Kooks, The Zutons, The Crimea,
Stellastarr*, The Morning After Girls, The Charlatans and The Cribs.
