Song of the Day #48: Night Sins – “To London or the Lake”

AVANT! Records in Bologna, Italy takes pleasure in bringing us the sophomore LP from Philadelphia’s own sinister electronic dark-wave artist NIGHT SINS. Night Sins in the alias of Kyle Kimball, who also released his debut LP New Grave on AVANT! last year. The album sees Kimball in his comfort zone, penning eight new tracks that show off a more focused and clean-cut sound. Album single “To London or the Lake” heads the charge, driven by a murky lead guitar hook that calls all the shots. It’s burdened by a wave of warbled, neon-colored synth beams, sounding both icy and creepy as Kimball croons through the shadows. His voice sounds like a wispy vapor, soaring and whipping through the track along with the constant, dance-inflected squeal of the guitar. In the end the sound works out to be a sort of electronic hybrid, using elements like traditional guitars along with synthesizers for the best of both worlds. Listen below and watch the music video, then head on over to AVANT! Records to grab the LP!
