Formed in 2009, Minneapolis-based indie rockers, Night
Moves have been perfecting a unique mix of catchy ’70s FM rock with lush
psychedelic instrumentation and Americana twang, slathered in a hook-laden
indie-pop glaze. The sound is both comfortingly
familiar and refreshingly modern.
Following up on 2016’s Pennied Days, the band are set to release
their third album, Can You Really Find Me, on June 28th via
Domino Records. Recorded in Austin TX
and produced by Jim Eno (founding member and drummer of Spoon), the album
builds on the pop sensibilities of Night Moves’ previous releases while adding
a new layer of sophistication. In
anticipation of the release, Night Moves have embarked on a US headline tour
that kicked-off June 12th in Milwaukee. We
caught the band early in the run at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro NC.
Starting off with “Angelina,” from the new album, the
band proceeded to play a 14-song set pulled from across their three albums. The new songs soundedsolid live and fit
in well with their previous work, creating a sparkling and cohesive set. The band was loose and engaging, delivering an
impressive performance that was well-received by the Friday night crowd.
Opening the show fell to Computer Science, the lo-fi music
project of local Carrboro artist Tim Brozowski.
Check out Can You Really Find Me on June 28th, and if you get the chance, catch Night Moves on tour this summer.
