The Art Crimes Band channel early 80s L.A production on In The Dark Of The Evening

With a new year come new beginnings and with a revitalised sense of purpose, The Art Crimes Band will release their first single of 2021 with the soulful In The Dark Of The Evening.

Recorded during 2020, In The Dark Of The Evening attempts to channel the late night soundscapes of the early 1980s L.A. studio “golden era” pioneered by the likes of Quincy Jones, Toto and Steely Dan, thanks to the singles production at the hands of drummer Niall Dennehy and Fender Rhodes-heavy arrangement by Shiori Okawa. The single addresses mental health and the effects of isolation with the song’s lyrics offering a message of hope, love and friendship amidst a tuneful melody and deep funky groove reminiscent of D’Angelo, Jill Scott and Stevie Wonder.

Music from the west of Ireland
