"The band’s music has an “Alice in Wonderland”-like quality to it, and not just because it was named after a tea party. DeHerdt and Eliot’s songs delve into the intimacies and intricacies of growing up, and all that adulthood entails: love, loss, isolation, frustration. But through it all, they maintain a childlike reverence for stories and storytelling, deftly weaving plot lines, narrative, and dialogue into their music." - The Boston Globe on "Old Cowboy"

High Tea, the indie-folk duo hailing from all corners of Massachusetts, is a concoction of sweepingly soulful harmonies, guitar riffs to knock your socks off, and a refreshing blend of old blues and new pop. Their latest release, "Old Cowboy", is an acoustic EP that weaves through stories of growing up, learning how to love and let go, and finding one's power. The bluesy guitar lines and wailing vocals travel through tales of  a witchy girl named Rosey who runs from her cursed town in the hills, to that of a wistful and shadowy cowboy who shares his secrets and woes in the darkly lit room of an old western bar. "Old Cowboy" introduces listeners to poignant characters who won't be soon forgotten. High Tea's musicality and playful instrumental writing is highlighted on tunes like "Invincible" and "Rosey", while ballads like "'O'er My Skin" and "Let's Make A List" tug at heartstrings with the duo's swelling vocals and meaningful lyricism. High Tea writes from the heart, and their songs are rooted in intimate personal experience yet strive to find the universal understandings of life that all audience members will be able to connect with. High Tea invites listeners into their lives, and the worlds they've created, seemingly saying ; "Come, dear stranger, and sit by the fire while we spin you a tale."
