Night Tongue are a transgressive darkwave duo from Australia who are now based in Los Angeles. The duo is made up of Andrew Dalziell (guitar, vocals, drums) and Carisa Bianca Mellado (bass, vocals, synth). On October 11th they are set to release their first full-length album, The Stag King.
While still looking to mythology for inspiration (as they did on their EP Achelous + Melpomene), the band continues to explore the greater metaphors between the mythology and personal life on The Stag King. “The cycles of nature are represented through the Triple Moon Goddess of life, death and rebirth and the Stag God as he crosses the seasons of birth, fertility, death and renewal. This is heard as lovers meet, connect, devour, lose, go through the dark and are reborn on a higher level,” the band explains. “This album is about love fundamentally, but it really is about searching for the eternal space of that, through all seasons, life and beyond death.”
Today we have the pleasure of premiering the first single off the new album titled ‘The Flood’. Check it out here:
