NIGHTLANDS KICKS OFF HEADLINING TOUR IN SUPPORT OF OAK ISLAND

WATCH VIDEO FOR NEW SONG, “TO THE MOON”

 

Nightlands, aka Dave Hartley, aka bassist of The War On Drugs, kicks off his first headlining tour tonight in support of his sophomore album, Oak Island (out now on Secretly Canadian). Dave is joined once again byAnthony LaMarca on trap kit, Eliza Hardy Jones on Wurlitzer and Jesse Moore on synth. A very special 5-piece choir will also back the band at the New York and Philadelphia shows. To sweeten the deal, Dave is sharing aShe Policeman-directed video for the brand new song, “To The Moon,” originally written for a specific scene in Kubrick’s 2001: A Spacey Odyssey. The video is comprised almost entirely of NASA footage of lunar expeditions. Dave says, “The song is meant to evoke a feeling of isolation and loneliness, but also wonder and innocence – a remembrance of a time when the moon above was an invitation and a gateway to the stars.”

“So it goes on Oak Island, 35 minutes of romantic and robotic soft rock, a crush mixtape for the Uncanny Valley.” – Pitchfork

“Nightlands investigates cool niches like psyche-folk or deep house, all the while embracing wimp rock and anthemic cheese of the ’70s and ’80s by fusing Mike & the Mechanics pleasantries with acid-seared solo blues of Syd Barrett.” – SPIN [5 Best New Artists for January]

 

“a gauzy journey through echo-y vocal harmonies and gently stirring melodies.”

– Philadelphia Inquirer

“Nightlands crafts the kind of music that feels intimate and deeply personal, even as it sprawls into otherworldly realms.”  – WNYC Soundcheck‘s “Check Ahead” series

“dreamy, sonic experiments.” – LA Weekly

“there’s an ever-present dreaminess and nostalgia . . . ” – Chicago Reader

“the album evokes the California soft rock of the 1960s-think the Association or the Mamas and the Papas-layered over chaotic percussion, horns, and noise. The harmonies sound like a box of pastel sweets, but don’t be fooled: Underneath them are an ambitious sense of experimentation and, at times, surprisingly dark lyrics.” – Portland Mercury

 

“a gorgeous and triumphant little record, with rubbery bass and silly beats casting delightfully light grooves beneath cascading harmonies and tessellated horns.” – Indy Weekly
