Women of the Night are a three piece dream pop/protopunk band, originally from Australia but now based in New York made up of Jords on Vocals/Guitar, Grey Watson on Bass and Kyubae Lee on Percussion/Drums. I’ve reviewed Women of the Night before, and you can check that out here.
‘Moscow Mansions’ has a nice upbeat swing to it, instantly captivating, the percussion and guitar seem to be dancing with each other in this song, they have the perfect give and take, it really works for the song. For some reason this song makes me happy, I think it’s the offbeat energy to the track, it’s just this unique blend of subdued and relaxing, and yet it still has this rhythm to it.
‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ again, much like the last time I reviewed them, the second of their double track submission is different from the first, but again despite that it’s a very strong entry. This one is faster, and just a touch sharper, still a slower track, compared to some others I’ve reviewed at least but nonetheless it’s this nice blend of speed, managing to be smooth and progresses fairly evenly and consistently throughout the track, but it feels faster than it should be, and rather than being jarring it makes you take notice.
So that’s what I thought about Women of the Night’s singles ‘Moscow Mansions / Be Careful What You Wish For’ which you can check out on Bandcamp. And while you’re at it support the band by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
