1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Beware of Darkness is a bold new power band with an old soul pissed at life in the modern age. They are ready to frighten your children sleep with your daughters and make you shake scream and contort like its a Depression-era Southern exorcism. They play fast moving rock songs with exploding key and rhythm changes mid-song. They also play slow-cooked sexed-up bluesy things. Imagine Bowies Hunky Dory with low detuned primal Zeppelin-esqe guitar riffs. Its clear from the opening squeal of Muthafucka on the bands sophomore album Are You Real that Beware of Darkness is on the up-and-up and riding high on new wings while holding down that which endeared fans in the first place. That songs process - written by pairing a Tempest drum machine beat with a raw riff and bass line built from the bottom-end up - was a blueprint for much of the album and finds frontman Kyle Nicolaides at his absolute peak. Elsewhere tracks pulse and rage while soaring and chiming all is perhaps a little less sinister this time around. Where earlier Beware of Darkness material may have fallen more on the side of leather and metal these songs hearken to the likes of Arctic Monkeys Royal Blood The Struts Wolf Alice Cage the Elephant Skaters even Nirvana. Songs like Dope Summerdaze and Sugar in the Raw show their subtle hip-hop influence and in fact the trio was co-written swiftly with the female hip-hop producer Trinity a collaboration Nicolaides says was truly magic and inspiring.
