ALL OF US THE HEIGHT

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM THE HEIGHT

The Height have been one of Manchester’s rising stars the past couple of years and following the success of their previous 2024 single, the trio are back with All Of Us. Despite their tender teenage ages, the Salford lads touch on some of the most pressing matters in society in their atmospheric new track.

All Of Us is a whimsical transition away from the versatile indie rock guitars of Type Of Days. There is a somber feeling throughout All Of Us and it is felt musically, lyrically and vocally. However, early on the listener is treated to jangly indie lead notes. The provisional acoustic chords certainly provide the leading structure that makes the listener sit down and listen.

The chorus has deep harmonised vocals that provide a haunting touch to the track. The drums and bass are kept steady guiding the lead notes which manage to excel with such creativity despite being more withdrawn. A lot of the rhythmic instrumentation is drowned out, but with a purpose to set the scene. It has the feeling of a classic Smiths song; the mood is negative but the guitars are still adventurous.

The wailing chorus and outro build on the emotions and themes of division in the track’s theme. The talk of class division and social levels in Salford are reimagined like echoes through dank alleyways. The song discusses failed plans and lack of change and this feeling of stagnation reflects well in the moody vocal stylings.

The eccentric wailing will no doubt resonate across music halls and pull in the crowd for a three-minute moment of reflection. The band is showing off their capabilities from raucous and energetic indie tracks to beautiful moments of sincerity. The Height are quickly becoming one of our favourite acts and their old-school dedication is a valiant nod to the saturated music scene.
