Back in the Eighties, the world was lousy with bouncy synth-pop duos. But Austin’s Night Drive is reaching beyond imitation. While the era is evoked by their instrumentation, their sound is modern and foreboding on their eponymous debut, out June 16th on Roll Call Records. You’ve likely heard some of their early singles – they’re included here along with newer metaphorical material like “Trapeze Artist Regrets”. Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon claim in their bio they met after a woman they were both dating – each of them unaware of the other – died in a car crash. True or not, it’s a strange tale for a duo whose energetic debut seems cloaked in mystery.
