For fans of The Smashing Pumpkins and Jimmy Eat World, London-based punk rockers NIGHTLIFE release their debut album Salt & Acid today.
The band’s first EP had somewhat of a pop punk edge to it, cherry picking the best elements of their previous projects but tweaking and developing them further to formulate a new sound. “We are always pushing ourselves to create something that excites us, blending a myriad of genres and bands that we are influenced by, regardless of what others think or say,” says Lewis Harrison, NIGHTLIFE’s bassist and backing vocalist.
“There’s a lot going on which means there’s never a dull moment on this record, we’ve got big heavy riffs segueing into stripped-back harmonised acapella and then into funky melodic singalong sections; it’ll keep you on your toes that’s for sure. It’s like strapping your ears to a rollercoaster (in a good way).”
