Explores personal hardship and the fleeting moment of clarity that is often found at the heart of crisis.

Brighton-based Night House announce the release of their spellbinding debut album "Everyone Is Watching From Afar," out now via Back in The Woods Records. Blending electronic beats, orchestral sounds, and an emotional, lyric-driven style of songwriting, Night House crafts music that is both uplifting and spiritual.

Night House invites their listeners to enjoy ethereal harmonies in a mix of modern electronica and organic rhythms, with a warm melodic presence that is reminiscent of Björk and Sufjan Stevens. Lead singer Nicholas Williams delivers a falsetto-driven union of soaring emotion and delicate intimacy that benefits from equal parts folk, indie pop, and acoustic roots. Co-produced and mixed by Dan Brown of Massive Attack, from original recordings by Jamie Bell at Metropolis London, "Blackberry Wood" explores personal hardship and the fleeting moment of clarity that is often found at the heart of crisis. A gorgeous combination of strings, acoustic guitar, and mandolin adorns this beautiful moment of acceptance and personal vulnerability.
