And now it’s dark... Here comes NIGHTRIDE, less of an album than a Gesamtkunstwerk, devised by
The Pussywarmers & Réka in their newest conceptual lineup, the ELEKTRONISCHE
ABTEILUNG. Forgotten synths, analog filters, hypnotic samples and loops conjure up a previously
untold tale of the ultimate ride – the one into the Night.
Sketched out in the solitude of a godforsaken mountain cottage that serves as the band’s current
hideout, NIGHTRIDE clearly marks the Pussywarmers & Réka’s transition towards a different
understanding of what writing music can mean. A sensual ode to the Night, perceived and
portrayed as both dreadful and irresistible, borrowing from its rhythms – delayed, repetitive and
Tracked and mixed at the Pussywarmers & Réka’s own recording facility near Lugano with a broad
selection of magnetic tapes, discontinued keyboards, Logic and a layer of Persuasive Percussions by
Nic Mauskovic (ex Jacco Gardner), NIGHTRIDE will appear over the horizon as a fullmoon-white
12” vinyl wrapped in a one-of-a-kind cover designed by Ronny Hunger.
To be released by Annibale Records (Firenze, Italy) on Friday, 24 February 2017.
