Minneapolis-based quartet Night Moves share “Feel Another Day,” a beautifully built song filled with three-part harmonies, roving pedal steel and ethereal string synths about “being a sad bastard, bloated and alone in the haze, and losing your love over and over again,” says John Pelant, lead vocalist and guitarist.
Pelant continues, “A well-constructed song does most of the heavy lifting, or so I tell myself... This one is probably the closest I am to all the songs, it’s the kid I secretly love the most. I recorded the guitar solo 80 different ways at home because I felt the studio takes were not good enough. If you lose your enchantment you are really in a bad place. Sometimes you have to go with your gut.”
"Feel Another Day” is the third in a series of new singles being released serially, following the “surreal” (Brooklyn Vegan) “Vulnerable Hours” and “psychedelic” (Under The Radar) “Fallacy Actually.”
Night Moves also announce a US summer tour, with stops in Chicago, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, D.C., and more. Additional info and tickets are available here.
“Feel Another Day,” “Vulnerable Hours,” “Fallacy Actually” and the new songs that will follow were recorded at Pachyderm Studios outside of the band’s hometown with producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile,
Alvvays, Dinosaur Jr.). These new songs showcase Night Moves further evolution as a band and as songwriters, still trading in massive pop hooks that somehow manage to convey a sense of yearning melancholy but with a sense of maturity and perspective in the arrangements that comes with time. Synthesizers sweep, the pedal steel swoons, the high lonesome harmonica calls across a distance.
Founded by guitarist/lead vocalist John Pelant and bassist Micky Alfano, and later joined by Mark Hanson and Chuck Murlowski, the Minneapolis outfit Night Moves meld the sounds of classic rock with Americana, creating irresistible hooky cosmic sludge with a Nashville twang.
