NIGHTSHIFT – ” Made Of The Earth “

Posted: November 25, 2022 in MUSIC

‘Made of the Earth’ our new album is released into the world. Special thanks to Trouble In Mind Records for their continued support in helping getting this set spun onto tape and launched. They are a multi-directional audio ensemble from Glasgow formed in Summer 2019. Currently featuring artist Eothen Stearn, also of 2 Ply & Difficult, Chris White of Spinning Coin, Andrew Doig aka Robert Sotelo and of Order of the Toad and Georgia Harris of Slippy & Pelvis. They have been described as hypnotic punk and certainly employ repetition in their sound at times, as well as embracing a variety of other musical stylings be they hyper rhythmic, noise based, pop inclined or emotive. There is no preconceived idea to the band’s identity. The band favours democracy and balance. Primarily dealing in humanist themes there is an optimistic, utopian slant to Nightshift’s group persona. Never afraid to broach the absurdist strains of life that surrounds them, they revel in everyday confusion and find respite in the small wonders of the natural universe and beyond.

Their recent 2021 album “Zoë” was released on Trouble in Mind from Chicago, the follow-up to a self-released cassette in 2019. “Made Of The Earth” represents the last document of the band’s initial incarnation, with odds & sods as well as unreleased tracks combining to form a surprisingly cohesive whole. Surely a testament to the band’s vision & execution.

A follow-up album (also on Trouble in Mind) will be forthcoming. The group continue to navigate friendship, create new music and play shows whenever the opportunity arises.
