Sir-Vere unleash their self-produced dancefloor trouncing new single ‘Night Time’ on Wall of Sound on July 20, ‘Night Time’ is taken from the band’s forthcoming first album for WoS, titled ‘Psychoballistic Funk’ and scheduled to drop towards the end of 2018. Listen here
A tumultuous vision of exploding guitars and punky, stream-of-consciousness vocals, all driven along by crisp, sharp breakbeats and obscenely bumping sub-bass wobble, ‘Night Time’ sees the Milton Keynes-based trio furthering their agenda of RDM – or rocktronic dance music –taking the best of rock power, punk attitude and the hypnotism of dance technology and meshing them into something entirely new.
Their musical palate is wide, borrowing from the pumping b-lines of Plump DJs, the deft guitar licks of John Squire at his most superfly, the feverish hectoring of Mark E Smith or Killing Joke’s Jaz Coleman, and probably a hundred other things too.
‘Night Time’ is the tale of a weekend lost in search of the eternal party and involves (in no particular order) a girl just back from Milan, a car, a pub and a Rickenbacker guitar…. Proud of their roots in and around the edges of Milton Keynes, where gnarled 500-year-old pubs still prosper in the shadow of the 21st century technology parks and enterprise zones, that have invaded the city, they namecheck one of their regular haunts in the song (The Lamb at Stoke Goldington) and shot the video for the track in downtown Manhattan and the slightly more down to earth Wolverton.
