From meeting in their Bushwick apartment for the first time in 2011; Davey Partain and Chuck Flores soon became fast musical accomplices in what soon became Aeon Rings
The love for 80's synth new/darkwave and more modern hard hitting electro anthems fueled their passion to create the freshest dark electro music out today.
Melody and intensity are the primary factors that set the mood for Aeon Rings outstanding live performances with imagery reminiscent of Blade Runner,Tron, and the soundscapes to match. All while giving a big nod to sounds that reflect Clan of xymox, Depeche mode as well as Ladytron and other electronic pioneers.
With a seamless blend of hooks, melodies and dark intensity. They've been welcomed by a vast range of audiences as well as great response by Internet radio.
“Comprised of New York based duo known simply as Holly and Andy, Weeknight create the sort of languid, obfuscous pop that swirls slightly menacingly through your eardrums. The interlocking male-female vocals contain both beauty and enigmatic characteristics, whether it be the bass heavy Devil or the glitchy Dark Light (Warrior), the crackling guitar lines and other-worldly lyrics elevate Weeknight above many of their synth-led contemporaries. Whilst it’s clearly lacking big budget production, the Depeche Mode vibes are prominent throughout, as are the loosely scattered shoegaze percussion sections. All in all, this debut EP entitled Dark Dark Lights is an extremely accomplished trio of tracks.” - Crack In The Road
Inspired by italo, electro and the 80s new wave movement, Teeel aka Jim Smith credits his sound to marathon movie watching and being an obsessive gear head. Crammed in a 10x10 teal painted room, stacked with synthesizers and walls covered with vintage Moog ads, Jim creates music that is perhaps best described as hypnotic soft-vocal, synthpop.
TIERS came about rather nebulously in the hazy hours when late becomes early and when consciousness yields to instinct. It is in these bleak hours that Jennifer Mears (vocals, synth, electronics) and Cult of Youth‘s Glenn Maryansky (electronics, synth, bass) write songs that ride the line between sterility and blissful grime, often going from stark airy synthpop to dense, almost industrial fuzz within the same song. It is this dynamic that separates Tiers from the myriad other male/female duos out there and it would be ill-advised to attach any labels to them since they are intent on defying expectation.
