Realising that music still brings us together even though lockdown restrictions are in place, Stanley Odd have decided to release a new track every six weeks. The band’s latest single, Night Rip, is no less emotional than their last release, FUWSH (F**k You We’re Still Here).
Night Rip tells a tale from both sides of a doomed relationship, with the soulful vocals of Veronika Electronika combined with the more sombre tones of lead singer Solareye. This is not a downbeat track, though. It’s far from it. The sonic exploration of leaving everything behind is delivered with uplifting breakbeats and synths. It’s a stripped-back electronica vibe, but one that evokes a sense of purpose and determination. There is hope that comes with the dawning of the first light of a new day.
Night Rip is out on Friday! Listen to it now on Independent Music News.
