Experience the Shoegaze Psych midnight Sun on KARATE, GUNS & TANNING “White Nights”

Down here at the 49th parallel I take it for granted that the sun sets and rises every day. It’s only in my imagination that I walk across the snow in a place where the sun never sets. Somewhere that confuses my body into staying awake all night. But if you’re looking for something to blast in the very early morning of your own white nights, I think Karate, Guns & Tanning‘s new single “White Nights” is it! This song is like the perfect love child of psych and shoegaze, and it’s got the warm, melty fuzz that mirrors your brain in a 6 AM conversation with someone you just met. The rumble of the bass, distant wailing of the riffs, and the soothing cosmic vocals are the perfect accompaniment to my mental tundra walk. It’s available now and you can stream it here and get their debut Concrete Beach here. Right now, we’re stoked to share their epically awesome video for “White Nights” that you can share with your friends on your next snowy adventure…

The sun never sets during White Nights in St. Petersburg, Russia.

lyrics

It’s midnight
Pink twilight
Ice biting
You’re inciting

White nights take shape
They’re blinding
You stay awake
So hear me out

Dark queen pales
Her scarlet sails
Palace squares
Inside all flaming fairs

White nights take shape
I’m finding
I’ll stay awake
So hear me out

It’s midnight
Endless light
Stars one day
And they’ll twirl away so

White nights escape
They’re blinding
One day I’ll stay
So hear me out
