In the movies, day for night describes the cinematic trick of making a scene shot during the day look as if it was filmed at night. This simple process produces complexly beautiful imagery: lavender-blue landscapes; expansive, jet black skies; starkly moonlit farmhouses; and hushed twilight cityscapes. Those are the images and moods Day For Night’s music calls to mind, and like the filmic process from which they take their name, the simplicity of the lineup belies the sweep of the sound. A three piece that formed based on a shared love of music, guitarist Keith Ehrlich and drummer Bill Kovalcik layer bass-heavy guitar chords that are both swirling and piercing with thick and explosive drums; Kali Holloway renders towering vocals that are equal parts anticipation and balefulness. The sum of these parts is music that is minimalist and lush at the same time; jagged and dreamy at once; and as expansive as it is intimate. Day For Night’s members have all played with other New York City outfits: Keith and Bill are former members of the now defunct Bastion; Kali Holloway is also the lead singer of The Affair.
