Following on from the acclaimed ‘Emergency’ and ‘Newer Light’, NYC darkwave duo DEATH BY PIANO share the final instalment in their trilogy of 2020 single releases, ‘Nightwalk’.

As the band say: “‘Nightwalk’ is sort of an answer to ‘Emergency’. Before things are about to blow, it’s an effort to air our grievances. A vesper turned midnight dance tune. An effort to get to Newer Light by dawn and put the past to sleep…….”

Presenting all of the production elements the duo have become familiar for, from contrasting vocals to eery synths and electronic beats, ‘Nightwalk’ is yet another quality example of the Death By Piano’s ability to tell a story using both their lyrics and production. Comprising of Kalen (vox, synths) and producer/instrumentalist Greywolf, Death By Piano channel the ageless trip-hop atmospherics of Massive Attack and Portishead via the pristine Future R’nB aesthetic of their US contemporaries such as Phantogram or Polica into their immersive and invigorating darkwave sound.

Nurturing a grass-roots following on the underground of their native New York since their formation in 2017, their relentless live gigs around the city and head-turning showcase sets at Rough Trade NYC and Elsewhere have marked them out as one of the city's most prominent emerging talents.
