NIGHT – ‘Charlottesville’

Originally from Sweden, powerhouse duo NIGHT take their inspiration from the classic 80s dream pop artists, such as Depeche Mode, and Talk Talk.

Comprising Adam Sabani (lyrics and music) and Gustaf Johansson (arrangement and production), the pair have been friends since the age of 14, when they bonded over their love of music. Their debut single, ‘Charlottesville’, features the baritone of Spanish artist, Guillem Duquette, and was written by Sabani as a reaction to the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year.

In the video for ‘Charlottesville’, we see Guillem calling out to a higher power; the clip shows a young man’s fear, frustration, and panic as a reaction to violence. NIGHT show themselves, coming out from the shadows. The visual message and song line up perfectly. Guillem is compelled to watch as the horror of the situation unfolds in front of him, and his expressions increase in shock and intensity.
