Astari Nite premiered “The Girl Who Tried”
Stream it on Post-Punk
The second single from the “Dreams of Majesty” EP out via Cleopatra Records (U.S.) and Danse Macabre Records (Europe).
“The Girl Who Tried” is an instant flashback in time, to the late 80’s, early 90’s dark and goth clubs of London and New York. The track is brimming with with the sounds of synths, backed by a steady, upbeat bass and drum line.
While the music of the single is ready to take the dance floors of the world by storm, vocalist Mychael Ghost’s lyrics float eerily over the track, letting the music guide your body while the words speak to the soul. “The Girl Who Tried” is a track heavily inspired by the New Wave dance movement, it’s sound being noticeably influenced by acts such as Depeche Mode and New Order.
The track was produced and mixed by Howard Melnick (Guitars/ Programing), and mastered by Rees Bridges, (Dirty Vegas, Pete Doherty and Tears for Fears) who has worked the whole “Dreams of Majesty” EP with the band.
“The Girl Who Tried is a song about regret and closure. It finalizes the story that we began in 2015 when we released The Boy Who Tried. When I close my eyes I picture someone praying while saying these words, however I have no clue if these prayers will ever be answered and by whom to say the least.” -M.G.
Astari Nite is continuing their relationship with artist Sandy Holmes (elemental.eyes) for the cover art of the latest EP, which will also embody the ideas expressed by each song on the album.
The “Dreams Of Majesty” EP is scheduled for a late summer release this year on Cleopatra Records (U.S.) and Danse Macabre Records (Europe)
About Astari Nite
Astari Nite channels an obscure beauty in the crossfire between new-wave and post-punk. Formed in 2008 after years of internalized ideas and melodies, the band quickly became the referents of Post punk and New Wave in Florida. This four-piece band consisting of Mychael Ghost (lead vocals), Illia Tulloch (drums), M. Sallons (bass) and Howard Melnick (guitar) explores the themes of love, submission, magic and melancholy through their dense and quasi-cinematic productions. Inspired by iconic acts like The Cure, New Order, Depeche Mode, and Placebo, Astari Nite offers a timeless combination of thoughtful lyricism, stirring vocals, and 80’s instrumentalism. Along with headlining numerous national and international shows, Astari Nite has shared the stage with Peter Murphy, The Psychedelic Furs, Cold Cave, VOWWS, Modern English, and Andy Rourke of The Smiths.
The band recently released the video for “Lovesick“ was premiered on Post-Punk.com. The track was mastered by Emily Lazar who’s work trajectory includes David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Foo Fighters and Sonic Youth to name a few.
