Nightlands, the project of Philadelphia-based Dave Hartley (best known as a core member and longtime bassist of The War On Drugs), recently announced his third album, I Can Feel the Night Around Me, set for a May 5th release on Western Vinyl. Today he presents the video for lead single, “Lost Moon,” which taps into the nostalgia Nightlands has always embraced via a deep Cyberpunk aesthetic along the lines of early 90s CGI. Created by Lucien Hughes, one of the inventors of Simpsonwave, the “Lost Moon” video takes sterile images and makes them feel magical. Head over to INTERVIEW for a more in-depth discussion of the video.
Continuing the tradition of Nightlands’ previous releases, Forget the Mantra (2010) and Oak Island (2013), I Can Feel the Night Around Me showcases Hartley’s ability to layer his voice and conjure some of the most beautiful virtual choirs in modern music. Throughout, Hartley uses meticulous choral arrangements and wistful major-seventh chords to evoke a longing for a future that once lay ahead, but has drifted out of reach.
The Nightlands live band is Dave Hartley on vocals and guitar, Anthony LaMarca (The War On Drugs, Dean & Britta) on drums, Eliza Hardy Jones (Strand of Oaks, Grace Potter an the Nocturnals) on keys and vocals, Jesse Hale Moore on keys and vocals and Scott Churchman (Chubby Checker) on bass.
