new album was released on January 22nd, and with it came "I Fell in Love With A Feeling," which has listeners falling for Hartley's eccentricity. At first contact it seems as if the bass pulls at our minds, slipping into an anachronistic spell that soon is accompanied by mirroring drums. Following the beat, and enhancing the quality, is a triangle, adding a crystallized depth while the trumpets give that lone-rider feel. Dave's reverberated voice -- a hint of robotic seclusion --- reveals to us his introspective lyrics. "It's a matter of taste, it's a matter of time," which for us, as Hartley sings, we agree, the song itself does, "Make the record stand, make it turn all around." Respective to the song, Nightlands' video to "I Fell in Love With A Feeling" uses silver spheres, polygon-shaped orbs, and liquid metal all floating mid-air and revolving as a fore-front, inducing their mysticism, which in turn reflects Hartley's all-surrounding sounds of seduction and persists a thought-provoking feeling. Its deconstructive mood revolves within our ears all the while.
was released by Secretly Canadian. Noteworthy is their album cover, which introduces us to Hartley's metallic creativity, whereat he's, from head-to-toe, painted silver and surrounded by branches.
