About Night Sins
Night Sins is aural proof this side of the Atlantic that life does not walk so dark all over Europe alone These gloomy miscreants, who first appeared somewhere around 2010 under Philadelphia’s heavy sky, are appropriately associated with a city that is engulfed in sin and decay.
Not to say that this musical depression doesn’t have a certain kind of soothing darkness, while Night Sins frolic down the musical path originally cut by The Sisters of Mercy and Clan of Xymox with enough hints of The Mission and extensions into 80’s darkwave to produce memorable songwriting that stands on its own.
Bass and drums punch through the mist thick as thieves, guitar lines circle like falcons overhead, while minimal synths street clean some of the residual dirt, and singer-songwriter Kyle Kimball’s vocals confidently press into the intimate fog. There is a brilliant light in the midst of dimness, and Night Sins is carrying the torch.
