Brandon Duhon and Rodney Connell introduce their new project Night Drive with the first single “Drones” which premiered on All Things Go as a free download today. The track is pure auditory bliss – an infectious, high energy, electro pop track filled with moody synths and compelling vocal hooks.
The single will be released via Robot Dance Records on Tuesday, June 4, and includes remixes from Bit Funk, Crystal Vision and Glasnost. An official music video by Zilker Films in association with Lobo Sucio Creative will be forthcoming, but for now enjoy this teaser.
The “Drones” release will be followed by a five original track EP later this summer so turn your car stereo up and keep the headlights on.

About Night Drive:
Night Drive is the type of music you would hear on a car stereo if Giorgio Moroder and Ray Bradbury were driving late at night through a buzzing metropolis. Inspired by bygone era of glamour and excess, kalioscopic neon lights, Studio 54 and Tony Wilson’s Hacienda, the band pulls influence from acts such as Brian Eno, New Order, OMD, The Drums and LCD Soundsystem to name a few. Night Drive rides a nu-wave of fast-tempoed, synth-based electronic sounds driven by rich guitar melodies and arresting vocal hooks.
Although Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon started as frontmen for two different bands, MoTel Aviv and Glasnost, their mutual respect and similar passions brought them together after their respective bands broke up. While supporting artists like Yelle, Digitalism and Neon Indian with their previous acts, Rodney and Brandon worked together on original music, visual concepts and screenplays alike. This creative collaboration left them with the collection of songs from which Night Drive was born.
