Premiere: Tomorrows – Nightshade


A self-proclaimed fuzzy account of a long night out in Dublin (hey, we’ve all been there) ‘Nightshade’ by Dublin quartet Tomorrows is a sorcerous five-minute effort that marries slick, woozy textures with an overarching air of wanderlust.

Initial recordings for the track – which will feature on the band’s new album, The Night Chorus 1 – were made on an 8 track Tascam reel-to-reel machine, before being brought to Christian Best (O Emperor, Marlene Enright) who recorded the drums and mixed the track.

Driving it all home is Irish artist Ursula Woods’ sublime video to accompany the single. Shot on an Autumn evening in the Huon Valley of Tasmania (a country in which Woods is based), it features heart-stung footage of an old Toyota Camry’s journey into twilight and slow-dancing on the beach. Have a first look below.

The Night Chorus 1 is out on May 31.
