Premiere: Night Idea - “Perfect Water”

Sep 06, 2017

Night Idea out of Richmond, VA are getting ready to release their latest full length, Riverless, on October 13th via Gigantic Noise / Citrus City. Under the Radar has the premiere of the new single “Perfect Water”. The track provides ample space for instrumental flexing, in particular for a flourishing lead guitar, within a melding of style described as “a complex blend of experimental pop, prog rock, and widescreen post-punk…that touches upon everything from King Crimson and Pink Floyd to Deerhoof and Palm.”

In true prog rock fashion, there is a loose concept that unifies the music and lyrics throughout Riverless. Speaking about the themes, Night Idea shared, “The events [of “Perfect Water”] occur in a different time and place, involving a sudden and mysterious drought and the events that unfold because of it. People become hypnotized and begin disappearing. Part of the fun as the listener is making your own ideas and images to the music.”

Based on “Perfect Water” it seems that Night Idea’s new album will have plenty of territory for the listener’s imagination to interact. Take a listen and check out the band’s upcoming tour dates:
