Video: Transformation Surprise, “Oceans Pray”

September 17, 2009


When High Places bounced to LA from Brooklyn, it seemed like a pretty calculated move. Because the two were already making tropical music, they should be somewhere at least a little more sunlit than New York. Since they've been gone, they've stayed relatively quiet—releasing a split 12-inch with Soft Circle on PPM and, apparently, doing stuff like this. Transformation Surprise is Mary Pearson's solo project. It's somber and significantly darker than anything High Places has released in the past, and in that sense it's a fitting soundtrack to the parts of LA that are beautiful and weird and kind of grimy underneath the glitz.
