Album Review: Night Beats – Myth Of A Man

Posted on 21 Jan 2019 at 8:14am

Night Beats may sound like some vapid Franco-Swiss EDM outfit, but the truth is a little more interesting.

Nominally a trio, it now seems to be a temporary solo project for singer/composer Danny Lee Blackwell as of the other members, James Traeger has only played intermittently with the band since 2016 and bassist Jakob Bowde appears to have left in 2018.

Their fourth album, Myth Of A Man, emerges from a period Blackwell describes with some understatement as ‘particularly destructive for the band’, but this adversity has not only heightened his sense of songwriting drama, it’s forced a change in direction which may, whoever’s wearing the t-shirt, elevate them beyond a niche concern.

Who are your influences?

Lee Blackwell: “I didn’t grow up in a musical family. I grew up with a brother that messed around with the sitar. I’m half-Indian so there’s a lot of Indian classical music like Ravi Shankar stuff. I heard that for first time when I was ten and saw him when I was eleven. I’ve been surrounded by that kind of music, and my brother played with The Doors when I was around 9 or so, and then I just got obsessed with the blues. Being a child of the 90’s, being around the Napster age, and being able to download music, to steal a little bit, the beautiful part about that is I got to all of The Velvet Underground, Jesus and Mary Chain, stuff like that at a pretty early age.”
