We have just been transported straight back to The Mighty Boosh days, where dark synth rock was cool. Well, we’ll let you into a secret. It still is cool and Night Drive would agree, having just dropped ‘Trapeze Artist Regrets’.
The Austin-based duo – comprised of Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon – combine lo-fi sounds with sci-fi sensibilities,
“Trapeze Artist Regrets was never suppose to happen. We were writing something else for a short film and became bored, so we changed the bpm, started shifting things around and all of the sudden we had this groove we liked. We just started working backwards from there. The title came first, a sorta metaphor for disaster; it’s about watching someone you care about make the same mistake over and over again and not being able to do anything about it. Just hoping they pull through.”
Night Drive’s debut album is out June 16th via Roll Call Records.
Sounds like: M83, Neon Indian, Twin Shadow, Son Lux, Interpol
