Scandroid’s Creative Evolution
Continues With Post-Punk Single, “Nighttime”

Los Angeles, California – Scandroid’s creative evolution continues with the post-punk spirit of “Nighttime.” The track’s reverb-heavy guitar and bass tandem establish the song’s personality early, joining with a dynamic rock rhythm and Scandroid’s distinctive synth tones for a diverse and expertly blended style. The result embraces an array of nostalgic influences while forging new ground for retro music.

“My inspiration for “Nighttime” harkens back to bands I loved in the ‘80s, like Sisters of Mercy, The Cure and Killing Joke, that wrote cool guitar and bass riffs over drum machines. I grabbed my Kawaii R-100 and bass guitar and started writing a song that ultimately married modern production techniques with music that inspired me from that era.” – Klayton

“Nighttime” is out now on all major platforms from FiXT Neon.
