Bio

With a full-on wall of sound and bombastic sonic diversity, the addictive melodies of The Night make them one of Australia's most promising live Indie/Rock acts - Seamlessly blending the rough edginess of bands such as Bright Eyes with a symphony of guitars and synth reminiscent of Arcade Fire or Manchester Orchestra. Driven by hook heavy melodies, overlapping patterns and roaring climaxes, it’s a modern epic in short form.

"...a dark, questioning journey into the most dangerous locations of your local metropolis"

– Handclap Movement

"It started out with a distant, but magical intro and I sat down and got goosebumps."

– 1146 Miles

"These guys strike a resemblance to Bright Eyes but with more grit."

– BochiCrew

"The vocals are crisp, the production quality is great and the melodies are addictive."

– InstantFilter

"It's a full-on wall of sound like Phil Spector and Arcade Fire teaming up to create a modern day lullaby."

– The Sound of Confusion

"A chiming, jittery, swooping mini epic that is reminiscent of both M83 and Arcade Fire, it pushes and pulls before settling into a neat alt-rock groove."

– When the Gramophone Rings

"...a dark, questioning journey into the most dangerous locations of your local metropolis"
