We’ve compiled a series of interviews with some of our favorite local artists as part of our 303 Music Vol. 2 release. Every week we’ll unveil another artist interview as they discuss what it’s like to work with Youth on Record and be a part of a curated vinyl highlighting the Denver scene. Check out 303 Music Vol. 2 to see all of the local artists we’ve partnered with and get a copy if you haven’t already.
Nightlove is bringing back ’80s synth-pop to Denver. His new wave sound exists within a teetering realm of nostalgia and innovation, curating an intangible feeling we just had to be a part of. Before his current project, Nightlove was a member of a hardcore band, Forty Fathoms. His change in direction also included the introduction of his current moniker — Taylor MacNicholas transformed into Nightlove, bringing synth-pop back into the stratosphere.
Nightlove’s single, “Still in Love,” is one of the first songs that the artist debuted under this moniker. With its heavy synth and soaring vocals, the song was a perfect introduction to the new project. Since then, Nightlove has released two new singles and a music video for latest single, “San Antone.” As the artist expands on his new sound, we took the evolution back to the beginning. “Still in Love” proudly takes up a spot on our vinyl, making it a timestamp of Nightlove’s musical evolution as he wades through future concepts.
We sat down with Nightlove to discuss what it was like to work on this vinyl, Youth on Record and more.
