Virginia indie prog quartet Night Idea are set to release their new album Breathing Cold. The band makes a bright brand of progressive rock that leans toward pop in spots. The lead single from their upcoming album is “Easy To Lie.” It begins with an elongated intro of sparse, but knocking drums, and a rhythmic chords on the keys before winding vocals come in with a churning melody. The song moves along with infectious rhythms with a catchy hook complete with an inviting harmony hanging on the end. An electric guitar picks up the energy of the bridge, before an intricate breakdown eases into a subdued outro. I’ll probably be singing that hook for the rest of the day. Check it out.
Breathing Cold is out 3/25 via JuJu Records.
