Review of Nightshift’s Latest Single “Phone”

Nightshift – “Phone”

Nightshift, hailing from Glasgow, recently unveiled their upcoming album “Homosapien” along with the release of the post-punk art-pop track “Crystal Ball.” They now present “Phone,” a mesmerizing midtempo piece enriched with violin by Ray Aggs of Shopping/Sacred Paws/R.AGGS. Eothen Stearn’s emotive lyrics express conflicting emotions urging solitude while also seeking comfort.

Stearn elucidated on the song’s concept:

Channeling inspiration from Robyn’s phonetic wordplay on her album “Honey,” I wanted to capture a phone call dynamic through musical instruments played by my ex and former longtime partner. The fiddle’s presence reminisces of past echoes, adding depth to the composition. The infusion of strings gives a hint of a chamber orchestra blended with contemporary pop sensibilities.

The album “Homosapien” is set to release on 7/26 through Trouble In Mind. Pre-order available here.
