New Music: Child of Night – Sirens

  • New Music: Child of Night - Sirens

Ohio is not known for its predilection for the dark side of music, but Child of Night are set to put that right with the release of Sirens from their recent What Remains EP.

Awash with darkwave nuances, reminiscent of Lebanon Hanover and early Editors, the booming bass line and glacial synths perfectly capture the sense of abstract abandon that comes from living on the fringes, carrying on with your life as decay and dissolution swirl around you, leaving you to seek solace in music.

It’s the perfect soundtrack for those that see in the new day in an empty diner, or are the last one to leave the club, delaying the dawn of reality for just another few minutes.

In fact, in just a few minutes it paints images that are vivid yet monochrome, snapshots of a life lived in the gray areas of urban existence.

The band had this to say about the track and its parent EP: “Thematically it’s a record about love, loss and the overwhelming anxiety brought about by looming end of the world as we know it.”

What Remains is the second EP from Child of Night and is out now in the USA via Fundamental Illness Records  in a limited edition cassette format. It can also be streamed on Spotify.
