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. Pre-order the album here.
Today the band shares an exclusive stream of “Wreckage.” Stream the track onSoundCloud and read about the song’s origin over at Interview Magazine.
Weeknight is on tour now through the end of March. Be sure to catch them at this year’s SXSW music festival in Austin. Full dates listed below.
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.
