The Pussywarmers and Réka
And now it’s dark… Here comes NIGHTRIDE, less of an album than a Gesamtkunstwerk, devised by The Pussywarmers & Réka in their newest conceptual lineup, the ELEKTRONISCHE ABTEILUNG. Forgotten synths, analog filters, hypnotic samples and loops conjure up a previously untold tale of the ultimate ride – the one into the Night.
Sketched out in the solitude of a godforsaken mountain cottage that serves as the band’s current hideout, NIGHTRIDE clearly marks the Pussywarmers & Réka’s transition towards a different understanding of what writing music can mean. A sensual ode to the Night, perceived and portrayed as both dreadful and irresistible, borrowing from its rhythms – delayed, repetitive and compulsive.
