STREAM: “Dark Light”
New York-based dark electronic duo Weeknight are set to release their debut album ‘Post-Everything’ on Artificial Records (a division of Hand Drawn Dracula). The record will be released digitally on March 4, vinyl release date TBA.
Today the group shares the first taste of their upcoming album with the moody “Dark Light.” Stream the song over at Stereogum.
Weeknight has a slew of February/March tour dates, and is set to play this year’s SXSW music festival in Austin. Full dates listed below, more dates TBA.
Comprised of New York based duo known simply as Holly and Andy, Weeknight create the sort of languid, obfuscous pop that swirls slightly menacingly through your eardrums. The interlocking male-female vocals contain both beauty and enigmatic characteristics, whether it be the bass heavy “Devil” or the glitchy “Dark Light”, the crackling guitar lines and other-worldly lyrics elevate Weeknight above many of their synth-led contemporaries.
