Night Argent sounds powerfully soulful and majestic in their 6-track self-titled EP, combining electronic, pop, and rock sounds. The melodic band mashes together an epic energy with a meticulous skillfulness that manifests into a surprisingly graceful product.
“Comet (Light It Up)” feels like a musical collaboration between One Republic and Zedd, with the band coming together beautifully to deliver one of the album’s more catchy and uplifting songs. This song will undoubtedly be a fan favourite.
Track 3’s “Towers” has a more sinister and darker feel, with the band changing their approach to something more animalistic. The chorus isn’t necessarily one of the more attractive hooks on the album, but Night Argent still manages to deliver a great performance.
We then reach “Kamikaze,” an airier indie-pop performance that eventually progresses into another anthemic rock score. The chorus sounds elegantly desperate, with vocalist Manhattan dishing out one of his more angstier performances.
“Widowmaker” has a cinematic feel as it rolls in on track 5. Night Argent unravels into something shockingly stylish, with Manhattan dishing out some surprising Michael Jackson vibes. The overall feel of this track is ferocious, and rounds out a very well-produced album.
Track 6 has a “deconstructed” version of “Nothing More Beautiful,” which strips down the band’s raucous anthem into something more vulnerable and sensual. It’s a shame this is merely your equivalent of an “unplugged” bonus, as the band sounds delightful in their raw form. We need more of this.
Night Argent is a fantastic album that brings together the best of rock, pop, and electronic music. For a 6-track EP, the overall feel is colossal, leaving us eagerly anticipating for more.
