As someone who has a day job that is involved in the design and construction of buildings, I’ve always been fascinated by how the architecture of a music venue affects a gig – from the sound to the band’s performance to the audience reaction. So, when I read that electronic pop duo Night Games are due to play a show in the unusual venue of the gothic St Pancras Clock Tower in London next week I immediately booked a ticket. The fact that the band have now released a string of excellent and seemingly always improving electronic pop singles is a bonus.
The latest, Replicant is produced by Bryan Wilson (no, not that Brian Wilson – that really would be something) and sounds like the band have swallowed chill pill a tiny bit early on a Friday night when they are still out raving. Yes, it’s basically an understated banger. Is that even possible? It evidently is.
Tickets for Night Games clock tower gig on 2nd February are available from Dice (click here).
