Despite their fear-inducing moniker burgeoning LA dance-rock exponents The Night Thief are here to give in to the night, not to take, offering a whole new sensory experience with one foot placed in the past and the other firmly in the future.
Revolving around the core nucleus of Bradley Register and Joshua Jacober, The Night Thief story is a classic narrative rife with unquenchable artistic dreams, undeniable chemistry and, most importantly of all, unique and imperative music.
Their music captures the innocence, naiveté and purity of ‘80s pop-electronica mixed with the primal energy of that same decade’s post-punk, masked with the sophistication of modern production into one seamless whole where the synthetic and organic merge into a pulsing vista of constant liquid motion.
As it transpires the present is the time when you can finally let go of the past because the future is now, and the future is The Night Thief.
