Parlophone Records are proud to announce the debut release from their new signings The Night VI. An Anglo-French six-piece whose male/female dynamic is at the heart of their emotional, seductive music, The Night VI formed three years ago at the French Lycée in London.
Revelling in a shared love of past and present musical icons including Nico, Blondie, Feist, Patti Smith, The XX, Laura Marling, Nick Drake & Joni Mitchell, there is a seductive Gallic beauty to their presentation of classic, decadent and dreamy pop music. Their four track EP 'Still Thinking of You' is being released August 12th through Parlophone Records and will be available on iTunes from July 1st.
Lead track 'Thinking of You' is inspired by time Sophie-Rose spent holed up in a Parisian hotel, she describes it as, "representing a finite moment - perhaps just an hour of your life; you're missing the person that you love and at the same time hating them for making you feel that way." Its simple musical beauty belies the lyrical themes of love, loneliness, isolation and despair.
'Trouble' broods with power and passion and questions the strength of a relationship permanently tainted by betrayal. In stark contrast the delicate five-part harmonies and intimacy of the poetic 'Mother' refrains affectionately with the words, "Mother of this land, keeper of this earth, always looking out for something beautiful."
The final track 'Skyline' is carried by a bed of squealing feedback and raw emotion; a pulsing piece of modern rock. As Jack confirms, "'Skyline' is about longing to escape the city you're in, taking only the darkness that you're feeling and the girl that you love as company in order to be alone with, and consumed by, both."
The 'Still Thinking of You' EP introduces The Night VI in bold and enticing technicolor, its melodies resonating frequently with the more carnal moments of one's experience and imagination.
It's nothing like the country vibe we were anticipating.
