There’s a new album on the way from inventive British duo Nightports. The pair approach their different projects with pre-defined rules, and in their two previous albums, they only used sounds produced by a featured musician, discovering varied ways to explore and rework the artist’s music. Following their 2018 collaboration with Matthew Bourne, and the 2020 collaboration with Betamax, which was one of our favourite Albums of 2020, Nightports joined forces with phenomenal bass player Tom Herbert (Polar Bear, The Invisible) for their next record. Entitled Nightports w/ Tom Herbert, on the album Herbert’s command of the double bass is on display throughout. “Through our collaboration, we wanted to show different sides to the instrument and reveal the real details of Tom’s playing,” Slater comments. “In our approach, we wanted to highlight all that the double bass is and can be, and to put it centre stage.”

We’ll have to wait until April 29th for the album to be out through The Leaf Label but we can already hear the first riveting single, ‘Arcs’. The track comes with an accompanying video made by GOODBOY. Watch it below.
