Still Dark Sky is New Haunts‘ third full-length album. Still Dark Sky's title track was written just before the UK went into lockdown for the first time - news of the approaching pandemic felt surreal and disturbing, but at the time everyday life remained unchanged. Each song that followed relates to a feeling or issue that has always existed, but which was inevitably amplified by the strange times in which it was born.
Alice Sheridan, the artist behind New Haunts, wanted the songs to be cathartic - Still Dark Sky as a result has become her most upbeat and uncompromising album yet – an album for anyone who needs to process things via loud, heartfelt music.
Bristol-based New Haunts uses an arresting vocal and a hypnotic rush of synth-laden coldwave to contrast the jarring with the serene. With a fiercely intense live performance, she has supported artists such as Kaelan Mikla, Whispering Sons, and Double Echo. Her acclaimed self-released 2018 debut album “Worlds Left Behind” [re-released in 2020 by Young & Cold] was followed up by the second full length, Fight/Flight, in 2020, and she has collaborated with artists such as Kill Shelter and Kindest Cuts since.
