NEWS: first single from Aidan Moffat’s new solo project Nyx Nótt

Aidan Moffat, the Scottish vocalist, musician, frontman of Arab Strap, and past collaborator with his fellow countrymen Bill Wells, RM Hubbert, and Twilight Sad lead singer James Graham amongst others besides is back with an exciting new solo project, Nyx Nótt, whose debut album Themes From will be released on 2nd December 2022 through Melodic Records.

As Aidan Moffat explains about the new album, “The plan was to make twenty 90-second tracks designed as TV themes, but it wasn’t a satisfying listen, it was too gimmicky and silly.”

So, Aidan Moffat developed this idea for the music into full tracks “making some of them quite long and dramatic, with the odd swift turn here and there.”

Expanding upon this, he says, “The focus then turned to making a proper album out of these modern library sounds. I decided to stick with the Themes From title and named the tracks after the sorts of shows they made me think of when I listened back.”

The result is a record that explores genre themes such as: ‘Thriller’, ‘Porno’, ‘Caper’, and ‘Swashbuckler’, and acts as an audio equivalent of channel hopping through a unique TV station programmed by Moffat.

The first single from the album is the 7 minute epic, ‘Actioner’. Listen to it here:
