Listen to Los Angeles based dark post-punk outfit Night Nail’s spellbinding new album LA Demons. The seven track LP is brooding litany of dark post-punk and gothic rock, immersed in iridescent romantic melodies resonating with the same light as that on The Cure’s Disintegration, counterbalanced by the deep forlorn vocals of lead singer Brandon Robert.
There is no filler on this album, starting strong with dreamy dark pop rhythms of “Never Dream”, followed by the single “Little Armenia”. the excellent title track LA Demons. The album continues with the shimmering key driven track “Her Gallows Humor”, and with the cold-wave and gothic rock drenched “Walls Collapse” and “Shadow Song”, before closing with the masterful “Hollow Day”.
