Melbourne dark synth heavyweights, The Night Terrors, emerge from the depths of the studio to launch their brand new record Monster / Lasers for Eyes on Seed Records.
Featuring vintage horror synth, breakneck rhythms and the haunting theremin melodies of Miles Brown (student of Russian theremin queen Lydia Kavina), Night Terrors offer a mind-melting mix of dark synth magic, thunderous dreamscapes and other-worldly electronica.
Since the release of their debut long-player Back to Zero in 2009, The Night Terrors have taken their theremin-fuelled synthscapes across the world, supporting the likes of Goblin, Hawkwind, Lou Reed, Black Mountain, Serena-Maneesh, Melt-Banana, Bardo Pond & Pink Mountaintops.
Upon return to Australia the band retreated to studios in Tasmania and Melbourne to work on songs for their follow-up album.
Monster / Lasers For Eyes is the first glimpse of the Night Terrors new sound – moving beyond the post-prog stylings of their earlier work to focus on a broader universe of warped psychedelic electronics and the darker corners of the dancefloor.
The record features remixes by Berlin Italo-disco legend Antoni Maiovvi (repaying the favour for the Night Terrors’ 2011 remix of his single Murderfunk) and Australian synth legend Ash Wednesday (The Metronomes, The Models, Einstürzende Neubauten). Also included are previously unreleased Night Terrors live favourites Meteor Shower and Somnambulist.
