The song is the latest single offBetter Nature, out now on New Machine RecordingsUnder The Radar calls the album “...as propulsive and arena-ready as ever” while the LA Times says it “has a clarity and inventiveness that’s rare for a big band a decade into its career.”
Better Nature is Silversun Pickups’ first new album in more than three years and was produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, Two Door Cinema Club, Crystal Castles), with whom they collaborated on 2012’s Neck Of The Woods. The album was mixed by Grammy award-winning engineer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Royal Blood).
In August, the band released the first single “Nightlight,” which was accompanied by a hallucinatory music film written and directed by legendary filmmaker Mark Pellington (Arlington RoadThe Mothman Prophecies, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam). “Nightlight” reached Top 5 on the Billboard and Alternative Radio Charts.
Recently, they performed their second single, “Circadian Rhythm (Last Dance)” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” “I wrote the music for this song but Nikki wrote the lyrics to it. It’s really an homage to a friend of hers that passed away recently. I think it’s the first time Nikki wrote most of the lyrics. We knew we were going to do this duet together and I really knew she had something going on that needed to come out and I’m happy this was the vessel for it,” Aubert explains.
This past summer the band completed a headline U.S. tour and performed at major festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Panorama, Osheaga and more.
