Philadelphia-based artist Dave Hartley, under the pseudonym Nightlands has released his newest effort, titled Oak Island (out now on Secretly Canadian), which features 10 songs about sadness and love which all feature a sound that is simultaneously futuristic and nostalgic for the sounds of the 70’s. On “I Fell In Love With A Feeling” Hartley’s warm vocals carry you through the pop kaleidoscope that kindly assures the listener that everything is going to be okay.
Somewhere between his time spent as the bassist for The War On Drugs, his musical project of Nightlands, lobbying for NBA players and various other side projects, Hartley was somehow able to film the futuristic video for “Fell In Love With A Feeling” and plan a nationwide tour to support Oak Island.
