PREMIERE: Dig bands like Pity Sex and Nothing? You’ll like Nights


There’s no doubt that dream-pop and shoegaze have both made comebacks in recent years, and Cleveland trio Nights is doing both better than most. Today, we’re debuting the music video for “Walkaway,” one of the catchiest tracks off their new album Whisper. Produced and directed by Siân Wright, the video is a swirling collage of performance footage intermingled with nature shots and more, all covered in a soothing purple tone.  Frontwoman Jenna Fournier elaborates:

“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. Siân has a wonderful way of noticing and capturing light in her work, and I knew that with her ability to create a dreamlike aesthetic, she would be perfect to make the video for this song. We bounced around ideas and shared inspirational media, but gave her room to experiment freely, and she created something even more beautiful than I imagined, layering images both in camera (using projection) and in post.”

Nights’ Whisper is available now via Tragic Hero Records.
