Needle Drop: Night House, Everyone Is Watching From Afar

It’s a strange time in the world at the moment, and sometimes it feels like there is no escape. News updates are constant, we’re missing our families, and sadly there seems to be no real end in sight right now. It’s times like these when people turn to music, more than ever, to escape from reality and to be absorbed in something beautiful. That’s exactly what Brighton’s Night House have accomplished with their debut album Everyone Is Watching From Afar, out now.

Combining orchestral folk, electronic beats and icy synths, Night House creates a sound that is oozing with ethereal goodness from start to finish. Previously released single “Unfold” channels the likes of Bon Iver and James Blake as woozy electronics compliment lead singer Nicholas Williams’s stunning falsetto.

Talking about the single, Nicholas explains, “‘Unfold’ focuses on the moments of change in relationship that is breaking down.” The track was written for a close friend after a breakup with his boyfriend. “I wrote ‘Unfold’ as an attempt to comfort my friend and that this pain, however hard, in time will pass.”

Also featured on the album is the celestial delight that is “To Be With.” Once again showcasing Night House’s ability to create ambient electronics with a poignant quality, “To Be With” offers us a glimpse at the band’s more delicate side.

“To Be With” is a deeply personal song, written about the passing of my grandad and the isolation that can be felt by those left behind. But despite the immediate sadness, I wanted the song to be warm, and filled with the joy of a life fully lived,” Williams affirms.

Throughout the impressive debut album, there is no denying the talent inherent here. Co-produced and mixed by Dan Brown (Massive Attack, Jerry Williams, Luca) Everyone Is Watching From Afar is the majestic album we all need right now. So sit back, relax and enjoy.

Everyone Is Watching From Afar is in stores now.
