Embarks On Spring Tour
'In The Dust' Cassette Single Out April 21st On Dead Stare Records
Listen to "California" On WILD
Weeknight premiere new track "California" on WILD Magazine, the B-side off their upcoming cassette single, In The Dust. Speaking on the single, the duo explain, "I think human nature makes us afraid to accept the darkest part of ourselves. California is our version of this fear- one that was born out of winter isolation and dreams of the desert." Catch Weeknight when they kick off their spring tour in Bennington, VT on 4/24.
Following the success of last year's debut LP Post-Everything, the New York duo, consisting of Andy Simmons and Holly MacGibbon, took a break to create two hauntingly beautiful tracks. Both tracks showcase the duo's ability to emulate their dark-synth influences while creating tracks with their signature contrastingly melodic vocals woven thoughout hard beats and dreamscape guitar work.
Weeknight hops between genres effortlessly, creating an evocative mystique with lingering vocals and plucked solos. Truly mastering the ability to mix, Weeknight delivers a glorious phantasm to lose yourself in. Static synth lines bubble between the knocking beat of the drum, nudging you into an ephemeral trance. With each effort, Weeknight truly push the envelope, bringing audiences a dreamlike atmosphere.
Weeknight's In The Dust cassette single is out April 21st on Dead Stare Records. Spring tour kicks off 4/24 in Bennington, VT.
The duo boss that same male-female vocal chemistry that saw Mosshart and Hince rise to prominence with The Kills, they boast a lyrical glumness that could rival the likes of Matt Berninger and Paul Banks, and in turns they are as melodiously miserable as The National and as sublimely macabre as Interpol.” - The Line of Best Fit
“The duo Weeknight make elegant synth pop that doesn’t let any of their darkness get in the way of beautifully orchestrated melodies. - Stereogum
"The music on this debut disc falls into a category of its own (or deftly meshes a bunch of au courant ones), infusing dark-pop and shoegaze elements with pulsating synth beats and the blend of Holly and Andy’s disparate vocals." - CMJ
