Flying beneath all the K-Pop stars who are shining under the spotlights of the big stages is five-piece electronic band, We Are the Night. Signed by Ruby Records, they’re not receiving much of the same exposure and attention, but they should be. “Our Younger Days,” released on April 25th, 2017, has a tight, mesmerizing sound that will have listeners immediately falling in love at the first note.
The three-and-a-half minute track wastes no time at the start, delivering a pleasing piano and vocal arrangement. The piano and vocals, with a subtle atmospheric pad in the background, sets the mood for a laid-back candlelit evening. Electronic drums fade in from a low filter, and after silencing out for a few moments, the song explodes out into a smooth trap-esque beat.
It was probably at this moment that really got me right in a trance. There’s just enough balance between the treble and the bass to create an overall crisp and lustful atmosphere to set the tone for the rest of the track. The lead vocalist does an amazing part bringing out all the emotions for this part as well, effectively completing a connection with audiences. The instrumental is also well done, featuring soft and pleasing synths to maintain the song’s atmosphere. The drum rhythm is on point, with the 808 hats and kicks wonderfully driving the song to the end.
Overall, We Are the Night delivers a pleasing electronica track that’s full of genuine emotion. There are parts of the song that could benefit from an overall better production, but the mixing is spot on. Both the instrumental and vocals are wonderfully mixed together to create a sound that will soothe all senses.
It sucks that “Our Younger Days” isn’t available on the Canadian iTunes store yet as I’ve already bought another one of their singles in the past titled “Natural.” I guess I’ll keep checking so I can add another We Are the Night song to my library. The bottom line is that these guys deserve all the support and recognition.
