After a seven year hiatus since their last EP, it seems TNGHT is enjoying being back in the spotlight. Just a week after their triumphant comeback EP II, the duo share their latest video for the new EP’s closing track. “Gimme Summn” is a disorienting trap heater, and the accompanying video is appropriately disconcerting. It opens with infantile Hudson Mohawke and Lunice animations exploring an expansive environment, but quickly devolves into a nightmarish affair until their eventual aging and demise

For a group as pioneering as TNGHT, it’s only right to call on an equally forward-thinking director for the visuals. The video’s distinctive look comes courtesy of animator Cole Kush, who is also responsible for Mac DeMarco’s similarly styled “Here Comes the Cowboy” video. Watch below.

TNGHT are officially back. It has been seven years since Hudson Mohawke and Lunice first came together under the TNGHT banner. The duo’s bombastic beats and larger-than-life sound largely helped propel trap music to popularity, while also informing the decade’s early hip-hop trends. As quickly as they came together though, TNGHT receded into radio silence about a year after their self-titled debut EP—until now. After a steady drip of singles this fall, TNGHT is back with a long-awaited follow up, aptly titled II.

Ahead of the EP came “Serpent,” “Dollaz,” and “First Body,” and now the full eight-track collection is available via Warp Records / LuckyMe. What’s more, the pair have also announced their live comeback, appearing in NYC before year’s end, followed by a limited run of 2020 dates across Europe. See TNGHT’s full itinerary and listen to their latest, II, below.

TNGHT release second track, ‘First Body,’ from impending return EP

TNGHT release second track, ‘First Body,’ from impending return EPTnght

TNGHT continue their comeback season with the second single from their impending II follow-up album of their 2012 self-titled debut EP. The track is called “First Body,” and it follows the previously released “Dollaz,” set to both be packaged alongside the full-length on Nov. 12.

With a variety of wind instruments, the trap-leaning track dips its toes into a snake-charming melody, alternating between a more airy flute and a pungi sound for the hook. Low-octave vocal chops join in on the melody for the second verse, while the track dives into its cobra hypnosis chorus with a bed of thumping kicks and clicking high-end percussion.

The seven-year reuniting was also followed by a tasteful BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix showing off the duo’s newfound eclectic taste. The pair broke their silence with the single “Serpent,” which leaned a bit more experimental though still hit a peak energy with thumping 808s. “Dollaz” and “First Body” seamlessly pick-up where TNGHT left off, revisiting their signature maximalist hip-hop-inspired trap.

When this decade began, MP3s still reigned supreme. Now, at the end of it, a song is no longer even a file — it’s ephemera, on every streaming service and available to hear in myriad ways. For better and worse, the song (and the single) have become the norm for the general public’s music consumption. More »

TNGHT are in full comeback mode now. Hudson Mohawke and Lunice announced their first joint project in seven years, following up on their self-titled 2012 EP with and aptly titled II, due November 12. The new EP follows a stacked BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, and lands by way of the duo’s longtime home, Warp Records/LuckyMe. News of the EP is also accompanied by the project’s artwork, tracklist, and a new song from the upcoming release, ‘Dollaz.’ According to the duo,

“While it doesn’t sound the same as the first record—the energy is,” Lunice said in statement, “This could only come from us.” Mohawke adds, “I think it’s a good indicator if something sounds weird and refreshing to us. It’s got to fuck with us a little bit when we’re listening to it.”

The pair’s hiatus-ending “Serpent” from earlier this fall may have leaned a little more experimental than TNGHT’s previous work, though their latest, “Dollaz” certainly bridges that gap, reviving the duo’s signature hip-hop-inspired maximalist knock. Listen below.
