about

The dramatic, densely layered guitars of Stan Howells, and black coffee vocals of Su Sutton are unmistakeable, but the addition of Chris Cooper (Pale Saints) on drums brings a burst of post-punk energy to the 10 tracks on this new recording.

While the overall effect is accessible and unashamedly "pop" , Insect Guide haven't lost any of their eclectic, experimental edge. From the ice-cool swagger of the title track to the gorgeous Lynchian lament 'Hearts Don't Break', from the sexy, sinister fever dream of 'Crushed', to the sparkling cinematic pop of 'This City', 'Dark Days & Nights' is a masterclass in the creation of musical light and shade.

For those who like their music hook laden and saturated with atmosphere, 'Dark Days & Nights' is an album to fall in love with.

"One of the best singles I've heard this year... Dark Days & Nights is the sound of barbed wire delivered with roses" THE GUARDIAN
