The London-based band Night Engine will officially release their single "All I got" June 2nd, followed by their debut full-length Wound Up Tight later this year. But today, we've got a premiere listen from the four piece.
From the band that declared they would be a return to the "music of the city," this track feels like Soho at 3am when the clubbers meet the crazies and the late night turns into early morning.
Last year found Night Engine with a pair of singles that were received with favorable reviews. Additionally the band sold out their debut London show at the Sebright Arms, and followed it up with a second London sell out at the Borderline. The band slayed The Great Escape, sold out a third London show at XOYO, and then curated a three show residency at Soho’s legendary St Moritz. Then the fellas relentlessly toured with The 1975, Electric Guest and Editors, spreading the gospel to the continent and then capped it all off with an appearance on the Radio One/ NME Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival in front of thousands. Then they disappeared.
Through the winter Night Engine have been in the studio with Rupert Lyddon on production duties, augmented by Claudius Mittendorfer in the mixing chair in New York. We're told the album consists of "dark noir funk" that segues the band’s love of Berlin-era Reed and Bowie with contemporary club sounds. The guys will play new tracks for the first time when they return to live action with a London show at Oslo, Hackney Central on 5th June.
Today we have a first listen of their single "All I Got," remixed by MT. This is a dreamy, laid-back, nine minute version of the original. To hear the original check out the band's Soundcloud HERE and follow the guys on Twitter HERE.
