In preparation for this release Weeknight have shared their cryptic video for latest single ‘Dark Light‘, see above. The video was directed by Austin M. Kearns, and shows the duo in a series of costumes and with faces painted reminiscent of Mexican death skulls (Calaveras).
Comprised of New York based duo known simply as Holly and Andy, Weeknight create the sort of languid, obfuscous pop that swirls slightly menacingly through your eardrums. The interlocking male-female vocals contain both beauty and enigmatic characteristics, whether it be the bass heavy “Devil” or the glitchy “Dark Light”, the crackling guitar lines and other-worldly lyrics elevate Weeknight above many of their synth-led contemporaries. Weeknight has a slew of February/March tour dates, and is set to play this year’s SXSW music festival in Austin.
