And now it’s dark… Here comes NIGHTRIDE, less of an album than a Gesamtkunstwerk, devised by The Pussywarmers & Réka in their newest conceptual lineup, the ELEKTRONISCHE ABTEILUNG. Forgotten synths, analog filters, hypnotic samples and loops conjure up a previously untold tale of the ultimate ride – the one into the Night.
Sketched out in the solitude of a godforsaken mountain cottage that serves as the band’s current hideout, NIGHTRIDE clearly marks the Pussywarmers & Réka’s transition towards a different understanding of what writing music can mean. A sensual ode to the Night, perceived and portrayed as both dreadful and irresistible, borrowing from its rhythms – delayed, repetitive and compulsive.
Tracked and mixed at the Pussywarmers & Réka’s own recording facility near Lugano with a broad selection of magnetic tapes, discontinued keyboards, Logic and a layer of Persuasive Percussions by Nic Mauskovic (ex Jacco Gardner), NIGHTRIDE will appear over the horizon as a fullmoon-white 12” vinyl wrapped in a one-of-a-kind cover designed by Ronny Hunger.
To be released by Annibale Records (Firenze, Italy) on Friday, 24 February 2017.
