Nights Premieres “Walkaway” Video

Band also announces first U.S. Tour

 
     Nights is a band that takes pride in putting it’s heart and soul into their music and art, which is evident in the new music video for “Walkaway”. Trippy and melancholy may come to mind when viewing this video which was beautifully produced and directed by Siân Wright. Nights’ Jenna Fournier explains, “instead of telling a linear story, we wanted the viewer to feel as if they were sifting through fragments of memories mixed with live footage that captures the energy of the music. The song is really about that beautiful moment of clarity that comes at the death of a relationship, symbolized in the video with the life-cycle of a dandelion.”
     In addition to the video premiere, the band also announced their first U.S. tour which kicks off tonight in their hometown Cleveland, Ohio.  Nights has toured Japan twice and played multiple festivals but is ready to hit the road in the U.S. The “Out Of The Shadows” tour will feature different bands appearing with Nights on each date so no two shows in any city, will be the same.
     Nights’ Tragic Hero Records debut album, “Whisper”, is available now on both cd and vinyl at merchbucket.

About Nights
Driven by expansive dynamics, infectious melodies, and shimmering soundscapes, NIGHTS winds through grooves of crashing rhythm and slicing, textural guitars. Ambient psychedelia juxtaposed with haunting, melancholic vocals spawns chilling performances reminiscent of early Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine. NIGHTS enchants audiences by shifting from soothing dream-pop to aggressive rock.
Fronting Nights is visual artist Jenna Fournier, whose soft, ethereal vocals and sparkling guitar float in extreme contrast to the roar emanating from the band. Guitarist Frankie Maraldo combines the clever manipulation of billowing, swirling sound effects with a raw, histrionic performance. His sonic chaos is anchored by the precision of Chris Dalman’s hammering drums intertwined with the band’s bassist/synthesist Vincenzo Mauer’s emotive playing. Mauer provides a saturated, lower end pulse and melodic counterpoint to Fournier’s poignant and whimsical lyrics.
NIGHTS’ debut Tragic Hero Records/Warner Music Group release Whisper was recorded by Jim Stewart and mixed by legendary producer, Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple) at Crushtone Studios in Cleveland, Ohio. Their sound, not easily defined, captivates a wide spectrum of listeners, inviting you into dreams, desires, and a musical journey set to expand aural horizons.
