Someone once said that Night should be spelled R.O.C.K.
Here On My Ownis the second single from the upcoming new album “Hight Tides – Distant Skies” from the Swedish band Night. The single hits digital platforms on June 26thand is a classic sounding Night track that could very well be from the bands beloved and critically acclaimed album “Raft of the World”.
Here On My Own has that proto-metal approach that got Night to be compared to Scorpions ‘76 or BÖC. A strong chorus and an accessible melody makes this a track that really showcases the wide and timeless approach that the band holds. This track is both for the underground and more wide commercial rock-scene.
“Rock is a serious thing, but at the same time, it cant be taken to serious. Rocking is fun and fun it shall remain. For us, I think the future is looking bright and it’s feeling groovy. Put on your boots and get ready for the next chapter of NIGHT! Imagine a twilight zone where disco didn’t die and rock music was allowed inside studio 54!” – Sammy Ouirra
‘High Tides – Distant Skies’ is the fourth album from Night, set for release on The Sign Records, 11th of September. The album contains nine new tracks of classic sounding rock music.
If their last album was darker and had a strong proto-metal niche, the new album has much wider influences and a More is More approach. The album is built upon rhythm and melodies, and Oskar Andersson now shares the position as lead vocalist with Sammy Ouirra.
”To create something big we had to downscale to something small. This time we had no room for Flying V guitars, but instead focused on solid single-coil sound. The new sound created a bigger space for vocals and arrangements”- Sammy Ouirra
Night has once again taken the help from producer Ola Ersfjord (Primordial, Tribulation, Honeymoon Disease, ISE). The band has stepped outside their comfort zone, something that becomes possible after taking their time both with songwriting and having a long term collaboration with their producer.
Night has since their last album enlisted drummer Linus Fritzson (Ambush). The band has spent a long time concentrating on songwriting, building trust and being able to step outside of the box. There are more vocal arrangements, but also larger arrangements on the songs and even strings.
