Nightseason mixes alt-rock instrumentation with ambient pop elements - the result is a brooding and rhythmic document about the importance of knowing your limits.
With the stuttered swing of a periodic delay around the hi-hat and snare we get a sense of ripples and echos across a wide space. The variable sense of dynamics ranges from just drums and vocal to a layered mix of classic rock elements with a modern electronic twist. It’s dreamy, it’s foreboding, and it’s an important lesson: you can’t win every battle, so don’t try to.
“Don’t waste your time
don’t wear the treads off your feet
when you’re weak”— Nightseason
The songwriting duo of Nightseason brings their rock and hip-hop backgrounds to the modern age of cross-genre music with their new single Wear the Treads Off.
