ElevenfiftySeven Records are both proud and extremely excited to announce Nightchoir’s second full length album 'See the first Star' will be released on August 10th, followed by a seven date NZ tour.
Recorded at Roundhead Studios and The Lab, ‘See the First Star’ follows the break up of Pluto, with whom, all three members played in for over a decade.
“PLUTO was the still the main focus for all of us while writing our first album, but since parting ways nearly two years ago, NIGHTCHOIR has become the priority", says Mike Hall.
Mike Hall, Matthias Jordan and Mike Franklin-Browne’s musical project has been described as “Densely textured and delightfully executed” by the Otago Daily Times. “Sublime” by North and South Magazine, and theNZ Heraldsaid “Nightchoir create music at its understated yet riveting best”
The new album expands on the emerging sound of their first album ’24 Hours Of Night’ and takes the listener into new territories.
For the past three months the Trio have been working on an exciting show. "We love playing live", says Matthias Jordan, "Now with our three piece show, we have a lot more loops and samples. It's exciting for us, we think it will be a great show for the audience too"
Mike Hall, Matthias Jordan and Mike Franklin-Browne bring a wide variety of collective influences, built up through a long career in the New Zealand music industry also playing in Balance, The Brunettes, Dimmer, Head Like A Hole, Stereobus, Pajama Club, Steve Abel, Julia Deans, Anna Coddington and Gin Wigmore.
NIGHTCHOIR “SEE THE FIRST STAR” will be released on August 10th 2012 through 1157 Records. Distributed by Rhythmethod.
