ASTARI NITE – “BOWIE IN DAYDREAMS”
Astari Nite, the alternative rock, new romantics unveil their new single “Bowie In Daydreams”. The track pays tribute to the legendary David Bowie and is released in honor of the anniversary of his death. It follows last summer’s release of their electronic-driven single, “Ashtray Ballet”.
Steering towards a dark electronic glam rock constellation in this tribute to innocence and dark fantasy, the quartet caresses the dark alt rock ballads from the 90’s with massive – distorted guitars and underground EBM synths. Yet somehow, they bring you home by staying true to their occult riddled-cinematic themes.
Expect uncompromising lyrics along with obstinate sonic fields in their composition as the band guides you through their alternative rock influences, from Placebo to Nine Inch Nails and deeper down the underground.
“Reflecting on the filming of “Bowie In Daydreams”, I felt it was very important for me to conjure my friends who I care for so much. I had this sort of cartoonish idea floating around for a bit that turned out to be a psychedelic nightmare if you will. Illena Frey (Videographer) once again made my thoughts flow naturally as she normally does. I tend to obsess over different periods of music, so here comes Astari Nite’s contributions to the 90’s, respectfully.”
Provocative, and emotionally raw; Astari Nite crosses an obscure mix between alternative rock & darkwave; exploring themes of death, love & the occult.
Having performed alongside acts such as Peter Murphy, The Damned, Psychedelic Furs, She Wants Revenge, Front 242, Cold Cave, Assemblage 23, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Modern English, She Past Away, Bestial Mouths, and Clan of Xymox, they have established themselves as contemporaries of the dark alternative music scene.
