the original concept for ’nightones’ came about in early 2020 following the release of pet deaths’ debut album ’to the top of the hill and roll...’. inspired by olafur eliasson’s ‘in real life’ exhibition, their aim was to create a low budget light and sound installation in an abandoned london shop. due to social distancing restrictions a new approach has been adopted...
recorded in one take during the witching hours of lockdown, with the moon as a witness and the mornings peering through their double glazing, pet deaths have created a series of compositions from their respective homes, capturing the expression of improvised sounds.
after some subtle snips and edits from the sessions, they decided to release these sketches paired with the enchanting dreamlike visuals curated by babar nazir and photography from andrew g hobbs (centrefold magazine).
“we wanted the chance to still be able to experience something together, as opposed to simply releasing a youtube video into the world. we hope that this can be a unique experience for all that have bought the release and invite you to join us in creating a shared moment and an opportunity to completely switch off and lose yourself for the duration of our live video stream screening.”
