* MADE IN HEIGHTS *

Sometimes our dreams are so brilliant and our desires so mysterious that we lock them deep inside ourselves to feed and play with only when we sleep... As if acknowledging them in waking life will betray the veil of control we shroud around our lives. But sooner or later every thought becomes manifest, and every dream finds a way into this world, whether by will or by war.

The Heights started as a series of hang outs in New York where we would walk a lot, and talk a lot, and eat at bodegas. We explored the wilderness of our ideas, the steep and elegant climbs of our imagination, the desires we had trapped inside of us, and the murky mistakes that seem imperative to the process of becoming true....

We're based in Los Angeles now. We're not finished.
