Night Tapes Releases New Song “drifting”
London-based dream-pop band Night Tapes, consisting of Max Doohan, Sam Richards and Iiris Vesik, released a new song “drifting” on December 1, 2023.
The song is the first single since their third EP “Perfect Kindness”, which was released back in June.
The track was written and produced by Night Tapes. Accompanying music video was directed by Owain Emyr Morgan.
The band said of the song, “We wrote this song over a few weeks in the middle of summer. It contains a paradox and to be honest we're still in the process of discovering the nuances of meaning in it. I think that sometimes drifting can take you where you need to be, other times it can take you to the open sea where your feet can't touch the ground anymore. We hope you enjoy this existentialist pop song - big up Maurice Merleau-Ponty.”
- Night Tapes started out as evening jams between housemates Max Doohan, Sam Richards and Iiris Vesik in London. Night time London, genre-blending, multi-fidelity recordings and honest reflection contribute to their atmospheric soundscapes that ultimately make for fresh and envelope-pushing dream pop. The trio take inspiration from both their lived experience in the world that they can see and touch, as well as the less tangible spiritual and metaphysical realm.
The band said of their music, “I say romanticism must die, the mind that lords over love is just un-f***-useful. An idea that doesn’t let you choose. As I stare into a blaze of desire, that is forever youthful. So, I vanish to a cobalt sky. The shape of what I thought was I. Wild shadow with a pale blue eye, romanticism must die. Ain’t this the dream you wanted all along? Solid honey, you can call home. Ain’t this the dream you wanted all along? Most of us are just drifting.”
