NIGHTMØDE “Same Old Problems”

This song starts right off with an upbeat, smooth sounding melody that instantly grabs the attention of the listener. The vocals come in, sounding laid back and calming. As the chorus hits, the singing gets a bit more intense, while the backing music keeps the consistent, relaxed sound. The music starts to pull back a bit around mid song, before swelling and building back up to a more energetic beat. This song is great for anyone looking for a new, easy to listen to, electric sound to add to their playlist.

NIGHTMØDE is the new personal project of writer/producer & multi-instrumentalist Matt Kass. Originally from Philadelphia, Kass is now based in East Nashville, TN. Some of his credits include HBO Docs, The Districts, Daru Jones, Swear & Shake, Modern Inventors, and more.

For NIGHTMØDE, Matt collaborates with a vocalist, writing and constructing songs from the ground up. He’s involved with almost every aspect of the release, from co-composing to playing the instruments, producing, recording, and mixing each song. The first NIGHTMØDE single, Penthouse Refugees, was released in November 2018 to positive reviews from outlets in the US, Europe, and the U.K. “Full to the rafters with texture, dynamic, modern, and earwormy arrangements. NIGHTMØDE is a sure hit.” The second single, The Pressure, was released in February on French record label New, Hot & Fresh | Kitsuné Musique and was added to Spotify Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds: Index. NIGHTMØDE creates expansive soundscapes with elements that emerge on repeated listens.

Matt approaches his work as a conduit for emotional expression, where everything serves the song, vibe, and performance. in 2008, Matt won “Best Live Album” at the Indie Music Awards for Tale of Two Cities by The Brakes, which he produced in 2013. He co-composed, engineered, and mixed the score to the feature length documentary First Comes Love for HBO Documentaries. His compositions have aired on National TV shows and commercials and have garnered over 100+ million impressions. Matt also studied Ethnomusicology at Cornell University, which has given him a great knowledge of different types of music from around the world.
