august at night is ready to come into his own, beginning a new era with the single, “all i ever had”, an intimate introduction to his matured sound. Blending devastating indie-tinged acoustic with sonic R&B elements and warm, emotive vocals, ‘all i ever had’ centres around an acoustic guitar, swapping out heavy hitting, lusting drum patterns for a spacious soundscape full of ethereal synths and idyllic melodies.
This creates a feeling of floating in the lyricism that plays into the melancholy, tender direction that the themes of the track surround. Vocally, august shows off his versatility, captivating and bewitching listeners with a spot on performance that is a departure from previous releases, whilst still being distinctively august in tone.
august shares, “Our story begins in bed, reminiscing on a love lost to time…”
For august at night, a new beginning came at a time he would least expect. The artist garnered press attention in 2021 and 2022 with a string of singles, but felt a need to redefine himself and his sound.
In June this year, he returned to the industry, succeeding to alter the trajectory of his music with his single ‘KFY’. This single was lauded by the likes of Earmilk and Wonderland, showing serious promise in august’s future. The single is the first from his decisive collection of music, Collection I, coming this October.
