Vancouver power trio Night Court has released the video for their new single, ‘Latest Darkness’. The song is taken off the band’s upcoming EP ‘Frater Set,’ which will be out on Oct 31 via Dromedary Records (pre-order). The EP will be available as a limited edition lathe-cut 7".
“Just knowing that things can get a little dark sometimes makes those dark times a little less dark,” shares Dave-O about the new song. Emilor adds: "Also, our shortest song yet!"
The new single also comes with a video that we are happy to premiere. You can watch it below. “The video for ‘Little Darkness’ is a collaboration with our homey photographer/videographer Tyler McLeod,” adds Jiffy Marx about the video. “Without revealing anyone's secret identity, the video features skateboarding by Skate Ghost as well as myself. Like skateboarding is to many of the people who do it, the song is about finding a little light in the darkness that is life.”
Night Court was born during the great lockdown 2020 with lifelong friends Jiffy and Dave emailing each other song ideas. Using Jiffy’s old Tascam 4-track and stolen recording software, they guerilla recorded what would become Night Court’s earworm-riddled debut duology – Nervous Birds! One and Too. The addition of Emilor on drums perfected the band, and conditions were now optimal for Night Court to release itself upon the world of rock. Drawing from a wide pool of influences – “kind of indie rock-ish at times, catchy yet dripping, with feedback in all the right places.” (Ty Stranglehold, Razorcake) – the band’s only concern is to play delightfully sick melodies through stupid ripping guitars, disgusting fuzzed-out bass, and bombastic beats on borrowed and broken drums. Night Court demands attention, but long attention spans are not required.
The release of ‘Little Darkness’ also kicks off Drom30, a weekend-long celebration of independent rock in the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains of New York, on September 15, 16 and 17, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Kingston, NY micro-indie Dromedary Records.
