The Ohio (USA) gazerock quartet of Francesco Maraldo ( Guitar / Vocal), Jenna Lorine (Vocal / Guitar), Jake Chandler (Bass / Keys) and Jeremy Dodge (Percussion / Keys) known as Niights are working towards the release of the LP Hellebores.
Released as a standalone single on the 28th of September, So Into You, slips in to the room on a fragile vocal, prior to gathering itself together and driving in to the ears in cascading instrumentation and electronica which is hazed in bleeding reverb and echo.
The quartet are able to measure doses of powerful rock with crystalline delicacy to create a song which is marked by its fluidity of changing mood… the fragility of voice that opens So In To You – don’t be fooled as this merely conceals, akin to the Trojan horse, the imposing presence to follow.
The Swedish gaze-rock trio Peace On Earth release their début LP – Silent Killer – tomorrow.
Peace On Earth
An eight track album of shadowy reverberating guitar, muffled drum-kit, solid bass and hazy vocal which has an hypnotic, slightly psychedelic tinge, in which the listener finds their mind and body coexisting.
The songs thread through shifting dynamics, with some tracks fairly sprinting through the room, others almost motionless which adds to the magical mystery ride of the album which holds the attention throughout its approximately fifty three minutes of duration.
