Album opener "Empty Stations" begins with a haunting string arrangement that is overtaken by a propulsive rhythm and Eleanore's spellbinding vocal turns. "Come With Me" guitar stabs, icy keyboard, and polyrhythm underscore the lyrical siren's call. The heart broken vocal on "Faded" wraps itself around the spiraling bell and fragile arrangements to devastating effect. The goth RnB monster "Stay the Night" is a tale of yearning with a seductive slowed-down groove. The vast soundscapes of "Lead In The Light" start out sparse and build to an otherworldly climax and then back down again.
"From the start there was a darkness that was coming out both lyrically and sonically, the songs were all heartbreak and fear of losing something special, trying to find that better light."
RED NIGHT is an opportunity to enter the winding tunnels of The Hundred in the Hands' nocturnal city where time stretches, tempos drop, and guitars plunge rumbling and throbbing out against denser and denser vocals as the story unfolds. The band's boundary-pushing sound is unafraid to marry minimalism and abstraction with big melodies. They have recently been playing some of the new material to rapturous audiences at big events including a Vice party in LA at the end of February with Odd Future and Kid Cudi as well as the most recent Creators Project event in San Francisco with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, James Murphy, and Squarepusher. On RED NIGHT, The Hundred in the Hands have created an inimitable world that is sure to be one of this year's standouts.
