Southern California progressive instrumental rock trio, Night Verses, are sharing their haunting new video for “Vice Wave” today. “Vice Wave” begins on the softer side of the band’s musical spectrum before escalating to one of the heaviest moments on From The Gallery Of Sleep. Visually, the video calls to mind a horror classic, complete with an unexpected twist that alludes back to the album artwork. From The Gallery Of Sleep is available now on Equal Vision Records / Graphic Nature Records and you can watch the video for “Vice Wave” on YouTube or stream the track on Spotify.
Speaking on “Vice Wave”, Aric Improta (drums) says:
“This was one of the last songs written for the record. It started with Nicks intro lead and ended up in a direction none of us expected. I think the big turning point in the writing process was when Nick added those massive fuzz/noise ring outs in the bridge. Once those were in place, the rest of the song quickly started to gravitate in that direction. Side note: The digital percussion sounds were influenced by all the Ministry, Arca and Post-era Bjork I was listening to at the time.
As far as the video, we are all pretty big on making our own artwork and teaming up with our friends to get exactly what we have in mind. We worked with Chris Abouabdo on this and built around some of the imagery we put together for the vinyl booklet. He’s amazing at bringing life to our initial visual ideas and developing scenes that feel very immersive while simultaneously complimenting the initial score, to the point where it almost starts to feel like the music and visuals were inspired by the video instead of the other way around. We love what he did on this and aim to continue working with him in the future.”
