Nightjacket unveil captivating new single “Waking Up With You,” play the Troubadour on 4/23

Holland Belle shows her unabated love with complete abandon on “Waking Up With You.” The deeply romantic new single by indie-rock trio Nightjacket is the perfect vehicle for Belle to reveal her innermost desires. “Ooh, waking up with you/there’s so much more to find,” Belle sings with her delicate, yet commanding croon, a sweet affirmation that pairs lovingly alongside the band’s brisk, charging pop-rock arrangement. Her lyrical sentiments—evoked with plainspoken simplicity—were inspired after she moved to Berlin to follow the love of her life.

“Waking Up With You” is the first single off of Nightjacket’s debut full-length, Beauty in the Dark, which is due out on May 31. There’s plenty of chances to catch the trio perform in the coming weeks: first at the Troubadour on April 23, followed by a show at the Bootleg on May 7. Juan Rodríguez


Midnight dream pop Nightjacket performs Harvard & Stone tonight, ArtNight Pasadena 10/9

The dreampop five-piece Nightjacket are opening for bi-coastal experimental outfit Guardian Ghost tonight at Harvard & Stone, with Ventura garage-rockers The Pullmen. If you haven't already, now's as good a time to check out Nightjacket with the recent buzz they've received on their fluorescent EP "Eternal Phase", a strong sign for the group's continued efforts.

For fans swamped with work and school on a Wednesday, you're in luck — they're also performing this Friday at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena at 7 and 9pm, as part of the bi-annual ArtNight Pasadena event. Both shows are free, by the way — Harvard & Stone is 21+ with strong drinks and cabin décor, and ArtNight opens up 21 galleries and institutions for eye candy to go along with your ear candy.

Dreampop group Nightjacket releases video for Right Way To Fall

While folk singer-songwriter Holland Belle takes melody by the horns in her solo output, her collaborative work in Nightjacket goes a different way. Like Mazzy Star (which they're oft-compared to), Belle and guitarist Jordan Wiggins are the creative force behind Nightjacket's work, but they don't mimic the aetheric qualities of Hope Sandoval and David Roback. The familiar acoustic strum ripples with each of Belle's refrain, aptly paired with Wiggins' cavernous reverb, inebriating modulation, or slapback fuzz. Backed by veterans Steve Lucarelli (Wounds, Gasoline Heart), Louie Schultz (Army Navy), and Diego Guerrero (Red Cortez), Nightjacket emanates a quaint, calming sound that can chill your spine like a twilight breeze through a desert highway.

Their debut EP "Eternal Phase" is available to stream in full on their Bandcamp. Watch their music video for "The Right Way To Fall" below. - Ryan Mo

Nightjacket releases new single from debut EP, play pre-release show at the Echo on 6.22

Dream pop quintet Nightjacket go for a paisley vibe on their latest single "It's Alright", a tender and sophisticated number with light psychedelic elements that brings to mind the woozy, country-tinged elements of mid-career Mazzy Star. Singer Holland Belle's vocals are more affective than langorous, though, her resonant vocal exertions a good fit for the band's brisk, jangly tempo. Mixed by Jeff Ziegler (The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile), the songs on their debut EP, Eternal Phase, sound impressively confident, never straying from solid songwriting even when they're just about to verge into droning atmospheric textures. 

The self-released Eternal Phase comes out in digtal markets on June 23, which the band will be celebrating with a pre-release show the night before at The Echo.
