Sad Night Dynamite have today announced details of a headline tour for early 2022, including
the hotly-tipped duo’s second ever London show at Village Underground. With latest single
‘Demon’ – alongside Moonchild Sanelly – premiering as Hottest Record and then made Tune of
The Week on Radio 1, the band’s new run of dates for February 2022 will go on general sale
tomorrow (November 11th) at 9AM. Sad Night Dynamite’s first headline tour, beginning later
this month, sold out immediately, in the wake of their self-titled mixtape: with a wave of
festivals and more to follow in 2022, they have also been confirmed to join Glass Animals on
their huge run of US shows next spring.
Danceable, dystopian but ultimately empowering, new single ‘Demon’ is about the exorcism of
dark influences in your life. Recorded remotely over lockdown alongside South African pop star
Moonchild Sanelly, it has quickly seen Sad Night Dynamite confirm their promise as the UK’s
most unusual and exciting new band. They are currently finishing up their second body of work,
expected to see a release early next year, following the trippy collaboration ‘Psychedelic Views’
with US rap kingpin IDK.
Equal parts light and shade, dystopia and fantasy, Sad Night Dynamite invite listeners to accept
and celebrate that sense of not knowing quite where they are (in their records, or amidst the
uncertainties of the world at large). But there are a few acts it’s easier to pin down. Archie and
Josh are a duo whose formative, somewhat feral upbringing near Glastonbury saw them first
meet at school, but start Sad Night Dynamite whilst separated at university. Cut and pasting
Logic files over email, something stuck with the experimental epic ‘Icy Violence’, which
introduced the boys’ incredible way with production: today, influences range from Tyler, The
Creator, The Specials and Outkast to lyrics laced with a distorted, fairground-mirror way with
storytelling. “Sad Night Dynamite,” Archie concludes, “is a bizarre fantasy built on real
experiences.” Wherever the truth lies, embracing modern chaos has catapulted Sad Night
Dynamite into the UK’s most essential new duo. “Our music is a hybrid of the best and worst
parts of each of us,” Josh decides. “Which is a shame, really,” Archie adds, “because if you just
took good parts of each of us you might come up with one quite decent person.
