TVD Premiere:
Used Cassettes,
“It’s My Night”

South Korea-based, beach jangle quartet Used Cassettes have remained consistent in their output of beautiful and bittersweet rock ‘n’ roll. But after nearly ten years and five albums and grinding in Seoul, the winds of life sent the members in separate directions and the band went on hiatus.

The bassist set off and built a beach hut in Sri Lanka, the lead guitarist got married and moved back to Vancouver, and the other two, well, no one’s quite sure what happened to them. But before they embarked on a “hiatus,” they laid down their final and most poignant record to date, the self-titled Used Cassettes.

We’re happy to premiere the album’s single, “It’s My Night,” which may very well be the last offering from this wonderful group. Sounding a bit like a groovy hybrid of Beachwood Sparks and Nirvana, the song manages to be both languid and soothing—while rocking hard. It’s also deliberately self-aware, shedding light on the often egotistical tendencies of young men who live wily lives, unhinged from the responsibilities of adulthood.

The band shares, “We often see our own actions as more just, more important than those around us. ‘It’s My Night’ takes this premise and softens its edges with catchy melodies and tight time changes, reflecting some of the wry humor in our often myopic lives.”
