After delighting listeners with their standout singles ‘Superficial Light’ and ‘Pattern’ earlier this year, NSW North Coast-based electronic duo Nocturnal Tapes have returned with a darker and more brooding cut titled ‘Pieces’ – Recorded and produced by the group themselves.
‘Pieces’ sees Nocturnal Tapes significantly progress by introducing Tech-house influences, drawing inspiration from Caribou, The Presets and LCD Soundsystem. Whilst the track shines a different light on the band’s creative depth, the pop sensibilities and smart approach to songwriting still remain intact.
Previous single ‘Pattern’ received outstanding reviews and support from worldwide tastemakers including Indie Shuffle, Pilerats, triple j, Rolling Stone, MTV, Rage and Spotify via their NMFand Weekend Buzz play lists.
Following on from relentless touring since their inception in early 2016, the two-piece continue to traverse the countryside and will commence a twelve-show East Coast tour this weekend in aid of promoting ‘Pieces’. Along their travels they’ve supported the likes of Yahtzel, The Belligerents andPaces, as well as performing at boutique festivals Mountain Sounds, Sweaty Palms, UTS Summerfest and Winterfest.
An accompanying music video for ‘Pieces’ will be unveiled in the coming weeks
