Summer might have recently come to a close but New York’s King Neptune is still surfing on those dog day vibes with his newest single, “All Night.” Released earlier this month, “All Night” is catchy as all get out; bringing to mind acts as eclectic as Two Door Cinema Club and A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, King Neptune throws in a punk edge for good measure and leaves you with a concoction that refuses to leave your head for days on end. We’ve teamed up with the King to premiere the accompanying visuals for the ultra-infectious single which were filmed at a house party where it appears that everything was A-OK. Check it out below.
“The song was written on Christmas Eve 2014 after having a few scotches with my father and brother-in-law,” explains vocalist and songwriter Ian Kenny. “I wound up recording a slurry voice memo to my phone at 2 a.m. and remember having that chorus melody stuck in my head for months after that. The tune calls back to over-served summer nights and losing your inhibitions for a bit in a brutal drunken matter-of-fact kind of way. Sonically, I really wanted to combine my love for 1950s pop music with my love for fuzzy surf rock and I’m really proud of how this song transformed from voice memo to record.”
“All Night” will be featured on King Neptune’s upcoming EP, titled A Place To Rest My Head, which will be out on October 14. Check out the track list and cover art below. Pre-orders will be available soon.
