It's rare you get such talent & elegance in abundance, but then again The Night VI are a very special band. This six-piece will shortly be revealing their follow-up to debut single Thinking Of You in March but for now have decided to make their first musical offering this year a beautiful cover of Frank Ocean's Thinkin' Bout You. The cover will also be made available as a free download. Their new single will be announced shortly.
Additionally, there will be playing a string of live dates, including a single party at Birthday's in Dalston on March 19.
When choosing the cover Jack Gourlay reveals "Sophie and The Night VI girls had been obsessed with this album for months but it wasn't until we starting dissecting this song that I realised how incredible it is. When it came to producing it I just tried to imagine it was an idea of our own and write parts and arrange in the way we normally would. The luscious female vocal definitely gives this version a really different feel to the original & musically the middle section I can't imagine Frank doing but it was all a lot of fun."
The Night Vi are Sophie-Rose Harper, Jack Gourlay, Anna Pesquidous, Bo Morgan, Kristy Buglass & Bogart Giner.
