songs: "Mute" & "Trance" - Club Night
In 2017, we fell head over heels for the reckless energy of Club Night and their release Hell Ya. Nearly a year later, the band has returned, the stunning chaos of their identity sounding just as beautiful as ever.
“Mute” and “Trance” are two tracks from the band’s upcoming album (due out next year) and both run wildly contagious with infectious spirit. This band is proof that you should embrace every inkling of your identity, because when so many different elements are pulled together, one beautifully ravenous release is created.
It begins with “Mute,” a track that ditches its eerily, ominous slow beginnings for furiously paced guitar, raging, but playful keys, and some seriously otherworldly vocals. “Mute” completely engulfs you with its energy, swaying from forceful to tepid; a slow waltz of ideals and sounds. It concludes with an abrupt machine-like whirring, leading you straight into the fury of “Trance.”
With hellbent percussion that brings to mind the raging noise pop of Health, “Trance” is equally as hard to pin down as its single counterpart. It’s a continual switch up of sounds, dazzling you with bits of electronic upbeat pop and pensive percussion. The one constant are the vocals — going from guttural to hushed, always tinged with an off-kilter warmth.
Club Night is constantly surprising us, and this latest set of tracks is certainly no exception. Give a stream to the singles below AND catch the band on tour!
