Copenhagen based psychedelic doom / post metal act LATE NIGHT VENTURE have travelled a long way, both as individuals and as a unit. From birth to adolescence in the countryside and Danish suburbs to grown-up life in Copenhagen, the formation of the band in 2006 and to the new record ‘Subcosmos’. Today, we’re giving you the first listen of their new song, the title track for the LP, along with its music video above!
The band released their self titled debut album back in 2006 and after a series of personnel changes, the current line-up assumed form and released ‘Pioneers of Spaceflight’ (2012) followed by ‘Tychonians’ (2015). These two albums took their cue from shoegaze and post-rock unfolding narratives of the universe, man’s encounter with it and the questions of both scientific and existential observance emerging from such contemplation. The new album ‘Subcosmos’ is the third and last part in this trilogy, and where the two previous records take an observing standpoint, the new record is a highly personal work. Also, the music has shifted its focus as LATE NIGHT VENTURE has moved towards a heavier post-metallic sound and expression defined by legends such as Neurosis and Isis, which the band develops by the force of their melodic, poetic and local traits that have continously characterized their music.
Here’s what the band had to say about the video:
It’s shoot in the western suburbs of Copenhagen around the area that is part of the inspiration for the album – where some of the bandmembers grew up. It’s like a kind of hazy dream of growing up. The adult person facing its past, raising questions if you can ever escape your past. “Subcosmic herirtage. Anticipated demise” is a line in the song to frame that feeling. Reality seen through the Subcosmos.
