Night Argent

Welcome to Night Argent’s world of alternative rock. The Washington outfit recently released their highly anticipated sophomore EP “The Fear,” touting heavyweight co-writes from John Feldmann (Neon Trees, Biffy Clyro, Blink-182) and Steven Solomon. The six-track collection showcases Night Argent dynamic sound and puts forth the overarching mantra of tackling the thing, whatever it may be, that’s holding you back.

 

We asked the guys to put together a playlist of songs they can’t get enough of right now, including cuts from Halsey and Kesha’s new albums. Take a listen below and be sure to watch their self-directed and produced video for “Dreamcatcher.”

K.Flay – High Enough
“The thing I love about K.Flay is she doesn’t hold back lyrically. Her music is catchy, grimy, and honest. The production/arrangement in ‘High Enough’ is a great example of her musical versatility.”

Paper Route – Chariots 
“Paper Route has been one of my favorite bands for a long time. The Peace of Wild Things is still one of the best records I’ve ever listened to. Their new album ‘Real Emotion’ just builds on that legacy, with ‘Chariots’ being one of the stand out tracks.”

Syml – Where’s My Love
“We’ve had a chance to work and write with Brian Fennell, the mastermind behind Syml. His voice is raw and pure, and carries an emotional weight to it that’s unmatched. ‘Where’s My Love’ is melodically haunting, and never fails to illicit an emotional response from me.”

John Legend  – Love Me Now
“Hands down one of the best live performers of our lifetime. He can command an arena full of people with just his voice. I can listen to his music anywhere and everywhere, whether it’s working out, relaxing at home, or out with friends.”

Imagine Dragons – I’ll Make It Up To You 
“Obviously one of the biggest Rock Bands of this millennium, Imagine Dragons has no shortage of big and powerful rock songs. This song showcases their ability to take an 80’s dance production vibe and create an emotionally charged track that grooves the best of the Alt-Indie dance tracks.”

Niall Horan – Slow Hands
To be honest, I fell in love with this track long before I found out it was by a former member of OneDirection. That only made me respect this track that much more. The simplicity in the production, the unique gating of the vocals, and the catchiness of the melody create an irresistible combo.”

Halsey – Castle 
“I always expect to hear Halsey in every movie trailer or soundtrack. Her cinematic production, pop melodies, and edgy lyrics all act as the perfect display for her sweetly unique vocals. ‘Castle’ is a great example of that.”

Kesha – Praying 
“Anyone paying attention to things going on in the world are very well aware of Kesha’s story. Her struggle played out very publicly, and this track is a culmination of all of that. Stripped of the huge Dance/Pop Production, Kesha’s vocals are allowed to shine, and she pours every bit of herself into the song.”

Post Malone – Congratulations
“Say what you want about Post Malone, I know he’s the target of a lot of jokes, but he’s proven himself to be a real player in the music game. ‘Congratulations’ is extremely catchy, and every time it comes on I can’t help but to groove with it.”

Allen Stone – American Privilege 
“Allen is from our neck of the woods, and proudly represents the Pacific Northwest in everything he does. He’s one of the most soulful singers you’ll ever hear, and his band are some of the most talented guys in the game. ‘American Privilege’ is a very poignant look at our society and all of the things that we take for granted.”
