Night Drive Premieres Surreal Video "After Dark" on PureVolume + SXSW dates!

“Rides a nu-wave of fast-tempoed, synth-based electronic sounds driven by rich guitar melodies and arresting vocal hooks.” – Details
”Austin-based duo reach back to 2000s LES-wave, and a little further, for the mix of disco, post-punk, and electro that drives ‘Position I.’” – Bullett

Night Drive is not a band. It's a mission. Two secret agents, Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon, sent to recalibrate the future of electro-pop.
Night Drive is kind of music you might hear on a car stereo if Giorgio Moroder and Ray Bradbury were driving late at night through a buzzing metropolis. Inspired by dark wave and synthpop alike, and drawing influences from artists such as Brian EnoThe KnifeThe DrumsNew Order and LCD Soundsystem, the driving beat and dancing synths of Position I makes you want to jet off to some great nightclub in the sky.
Rodney and Brandon began writing together after the tragic death of a young woman they both were dating, unknowingly at the same time. This collaboration left them with the collection of songs from which Night Drive was born.
The duo paired up with Lobo Sucio Creative for “After Dark,” directed Javier Antonio Avellan. “This is our third video with Night Drive,” notes Avellan. “We have explored the realms of experimental and abstract filmmaking in our previous collaborations, so with this video we decided to delve into a fictional world to tell the story of a young girl on a late night adventure." Check out their previous videos, here and here.
