The record will be released digitally on March 4, and the limited edition vinyl on March 25, 2014 (with the first run copies on ‘dark haze’ coloured vinyl)…I want to get my hands on that vinyl!

More about Weeknight? Comprised of New York based duo known simply as Holly and Andy, Weeknight create the sort of languid, obfuscous pop that swirls slightly menacingly through your eardrums. The interlocking male-female vocals contain both beauty and enigmatic characteristics, whether it be the bass heavy Devil or the glitchy Dark Light, the crackling guitar lines and other-worldly lyrics elevate Weeknight above many of their synth-led contemporaries.
