NIGHT FRUIT | Dark Horse

Night Fruit posted three tracks on bandcamp from a 7-inch record called “Dark Horse”. They’re a Boston-based trio made up of drummer Luke Sullivan, Jonathan Gill, and Amanda Dellevigne. This short and sweet 7-inch is a swirling blend of shoegaze and anthemic rock-outs like the nostalgic and pretty “Paper Thin”: “Will you help me out? / The city’s draggin’ me down / To get away / To find a cool escape / Wasn’t it always that way? / Or was it always that way?” Aren’t we all looking for a place to run to, be it a physical destination or in the mind? The chaotic closer “Bittersweet” has an epic feel to it despite being under three minutes long. It’s an auditory piece of fireworks, intricate and expertly constructed. Pounding drums build into sonic blasts of guitar. A guitar line spirals, convulses, agitates, and blends right back into a repeated melody. As wild as this track gets, the band finds a way to elegantly ease into an ending. The frenetic feel fades away into soft drums, light ambient guitar and a repeated vocal phrase. It’s a beautiful disintegration. This 7-inch follows on the heels of Night Fruit’s four-track demo “Triangles”. You can follow the band at facebook, bandcamp, and muxtape.   — David D. Robbins Jr.
