Sad Night Dynamite are well acquainted with roads less travelled. The duo of Josh Greacen and Archie Blagden crept out of Somerset in 2020 with a sound that pushed the eerie psychedelia of the area’s musical history (Portishead, Massive Attack, Glastonbury Festival as a concept) through the sharp lens of contemporary paranoia. Formative mixtapes Vol.I, Vol.II and collaborations with the likes of Moonchild Sanelly and IDK have touched a nerve ever since, with the band’s signature blend of surreal character-studies, waspish humour, and serious undertones surpassing 60 million streams and selling out tours around the world – including shows with Glass Animals & easy life.
 
Connecting the unlikely dots between hip-hop, blockbuster pop and bugged-out storytelling, it’s a chemistry that explodes on debut album Welcome The Night. Here is a humorous soundtrack to the end of the world, but one designed to allow a disenfranchised generation some comfort amidst life’s incoherence. Despite such existential questions, there appears at least one clear answer: increasingly, it’s impossible to mistake a Sad Night Dynamite song for anyone else.
