Indie artists Night Surgeon gear up to release their debut album. The album is entitled Day for Night and will be released on Feb. 15, 2011 via Too Dark Records.
Day for Night was recorded in Portland at the Map Room Studio and was produced and mixed by Gabriel Espinosa (Blondie, Fischerspooner, Mobile). Artwork for the album was penned by British pop-propaganda artist Aidan “BRUTE!” Hughes, most commonly known for his work with industrial act KMFDM.
The Portland, Oregon-based twosome Night Surgeon—composed of Patrick Replogle and John Boyd, who are both Berklee alum—aren’t your typical flash in the pan electronic band who hope to spend most of their fleeting fifteen minutes accumulating hype without the sonic chops to back it up. Instead, this Pacific Northwest outfit create complex yet accessible songs that are deliciously effervescent without the throw-away frivolity. – Hauley Kaufman, Oakazine Magazine
The songs fuse strong new wave influences with a much more modern synthpop edge. You’ll quickly discover that this group is worth keeping an eye on. Keep your eyes and ears open for big things to happen. – Peter Menniti, Baeble Music Television
The New Wave style and mellow and pleasant male vocals put the band right in-line with early Depeche Mode, Cause & Effect, Camouflage, etc.
A music video for the track Roman Error, directed by Nikhil Kamineni of the Brooklyn shoe-gaze outfit QUIET LIGHTS will be released in early February.
