NIIGHTS shift seamlessly between dream-pop and heavier melodic rock with shimmery, fuzzy layers of texture. Ethereal female vocals whisper poignant and whimsical lyrics, paired with artfully crafted dynamic songwriting to channel the spirit of 90’s shoegaze and early Smashing Pumpkins with an enchantingly fresh spin.
Fronting NIIGHTS is visual artist & singer-songwriter Jenna Fournier, a Las Vegas-to-Cleveland transplant who began working with songwriter and innovative guitarist/pedal-tweaker Frankie Maraldo in 2010. The two are now joined by Jeremy Dodge on drums and bassist/synthesist Jacob Chandler, who anchor and underline the sonic chaos.
NIIGHTS released their first EP, A Tangle of Arms, in 2010, followed by their debut album Whisper (recorded by Jim Stewart) in 2013, which landed them a deal with 2670 Records in Japan. After two international tours, NIIGHTS signed with Tragic Hero Records and re-mixed Whisper with legendary producer Jim Wirt for a re-release in 2015.
Fournier soon returned to Japan with an exclusive solo EP in 2017, simultaneously recording a new NIIGHTS album with Wirt while struggling over the loss of two bandmates. Despite setbacks, NIIGHTS pushed forward, obsessing over details in the studio to complete their latest full-length album, Hellebores – released on February 15th, 2019.
