Based out of London, The Night VI are using 2014 to showcase the accessibility in their sound. Having great success so far this year with their cover of Frank Ocean's "Thinking Bout You" and their original single "Sienna", they have drawn quite the following to their soulful and smooth sound.
Taking things in a new direction, The Night VI shift to a new approach with "Wonderlust", showcasing a keen sense of versatility. Meshing the structure of a standard indie pop song with their distinct harmonious style, "Wonderlust" uses a driven synth and guitar backing to propel the vocals onward. As the hushed vocals are carried weightlessly through until the end, along the way a mini guitar solo and layered backing vocals as used to round out the setting.
Of the song, The Night VI's lead single had to say, "Wonderlust is about waiting for true love & a tale of a perfect encounter. My fascination with American Western-style B movies inspired the song. Set in a downtown dive bar filled with junkies and jukeboxes I imagined a woman possessed by her drunken fantasies that have spun out of control and her eccentricity is reeking of desperation. So following in the old country tradition it’s an upbeat song with a sad and bitter core."
