Night Drive "Position II" VINYL
Preorder black or "Digital Floral" vinyl, also available on CD. Ships Oct. 2023.
"A banging drive to “Vultures” and “White Lights,” cinematic in tempo – quick cuts and car chases – and heavy emotional resonance, evince the three-dimensional steeliness of the former genre and the lush vocals of the latter. Slicker than preceding 2013 beat ball-peen Position I, Night Drive’s latest matches their eponymous 2017 full-length and hails Survive-like ear-phoria."- Raoul Hernandez, Austin Chronicle
'“Cover Your Eyes” is a multifaceted techno track; it has a catchy dance beat that’s intertwined with an ominous synth sound, adding to the sense of dread and urgency in the lyrics. Despite having a strong goth and new wave influence, it is a fresh take on the classics, with its industrial elements and moody vocals. The atmosphere Night Drive creates is enticing, yet deeply unsettling.'- Maria Mata, Melodic Mag
ABOUT NIGHT DRIVE:
Though they’re both based in Texas, Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon - the creators of Night Drive - first met in Mexico City at a midnight screening of the Panos Cosmatos film “Beyond the Black Rainbow”. Bonding over their love of the movie’s visual imagery and synth soundscapes, they soon discovered that they were both musicians whose previous bands had just dissolved. Through this serendipity, Night Drive was born.
On a whim, they went to a tarot reader and asked about the future of their band. She told them that they would find the third member of their band in two years.
“We didn’t meet Nick (our drummer) until three years later,” Brandon explains, “so she needs to brush up on her skills.” Nick Dudek was the final piece of the machine, and the current incarnation of Night Drive was officially set into orbit.
Inspired by sci-fi cinematic landscapes, Night Drive creates modern synth-pop that explores the darker currents of abstract emotion. Infectious melodies wrapped in expressive lyrics with pulsing dance beats unveil a stylish, energetic sound that has been featured in film, tv and radio around the world. Touring with international bands such as Crystal Castles, Ladytron, CHVRCHES, Austra and The Psychedelic Furs, Night Drive has garnered a reputation as a captivating, must see live show.
