Richmond, VA’s Night Idea are getting ready to release their latest full length, Riverless, on October 13th via Gigantic Noise / Citrus City. The band have spent much of the past year on the road, perfecting their complex blend of experimental pop, prog rock, and widescreen post-punk and it shows throughout Riverless, a record that touches upon everything from King Crimson and Pink Floyd to Deerhoof and Palm. Syncopated rhythms are smoothed out by melodic guitars, keyboards, and vocals in a way that’s both challenging and melodic. Prog rock has seen a surprisingly resurgence this year thanks to bands like Once & Future Band and Elder, and Night Idea’s vision of the complex genre is both intricate and stunning.

n true prog rock fashion, there is a loose concept that unifies the music and lyrics throughout¬†Riverless. Speaking about the themes, Night Idea shared, “the events occur in a different time and place, involving a sudden and mysterious drought and the events that unfold because of it. People become hypnotized and begin disappearing. Part of the fun as the listener is making your own ideas and images to the music.”
