Brighton-based Night House have released their latest single, Blackout, a track taken from their emotive debut album, Everyone Is Watching From Afar, out on 27th March 2020 via Back in The Woods Records.
Blending electronic beats, orchestral arrangements and lyric-driven song-writing, Night House has a sound that is almost spiritual; beautiful, uplifting ethereal harmonies meld with modern electronica to create a warm, intelligent sound that is reminiscent of Björk and Wild Beasts, with lead singer Nicholas Williams aptly described by Radio Reverb as a “falsetto Tom Waits”.
The collective draw from a wide range of influences marrying the electronic work the likes of which James Blake and Radiohead are renowned for, with the folk harmonies of Sufjan Stevens, Joni Mitchell, and Bon Iver. Co-produced and mixed by Dan Brown (Massive Attack, Jerry Williams, Luca), the record was written during a period of family bereavement with the personal lyrics drifting over warm strings and clarinets, where layered vocal harmonies meet icy synthesizers and electronic beats.
As well as supporting the likes of Ben Howard, Willy Mason, Solomon Grey, Krystle Warren and The Magic Numbers, the band have gained recognition throughout the past 12 months having picked up support from tastemakers such as M-Magazine (PRS for Music), Clash Magazine, BBC Radio, The Vinyl District and Come Here Floyd, as well as videos premiering on Attitude Magazine and God is in the TV.
