Sonic Sounds of Niights Invade Barnesville Tonight
BARNESVILLE — Skyflight Productions presents Niights tonight at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville.
Driven by expansive dynamics, infectious melodies, and shimmering soundscapes, Niights winds through grooves of crashing rhythm and slicing, textural guitars. Ambient psychedelia juxtaposed with haunting, melancholic vocals spawns chilling performances reminiscent of early Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine. Niights enchants audiences by shifting from soothing dream-pop to aggressive rock.
Fronting Niights is visual artist Jenna Fournier, whose soft, ethereal vocals and sparkling guitar float in extreme contrast to the roar emanating from the band. Guitarist Frankie Maraldo combines the clever manipulation of billowing, swirling sound effects with a raw, histrionic performance. His sonic chaos is anchored by the precision of Chris Dalman’s hammering drums intertwined with the band’s bassist/synthesist Vincenzo Mauer’s emotive playing. Mauer provides a saturated, lower end pulse and melodic counterpoint to Fournier’s poignant and whimsical lyrics.
Niights’ debut Tragic Hero Records/Warner Music Group release Whisper was recorded by Jim Stewart and mixed by legendary producer, Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple) at Crushtone Studios in Cleveland, Ohio. Their sound, not easily defined, captivates a wide spectrum of listeners, inviting you into dreams, desires, and a musical journey set to expand aural horizons.
Doors will open at 7 p.m., and the show will begin at 7:30 p.m.
