Next up in our interview section is London-based electronic outfit Night Games whose latest track ‘Suffocate’ we tipped on the site earlier this summer. With further new material and unique gigs on the agenda for the second half of 2016, we spoke to the duo to find out more about their plans…

1. Firstly, for those who are unfamiliar with your work, how would you describe your sound?

Synthy electro dream pop.

2. We featured you on The Tipping Point a while back, what have you been up to since?
We recently launched the first of a unique gig series at F.Cooke Pie & Mash in Hoxton, and are currently lining up the next space. After two back to back releases with ‘Faithless’ and ‘Suffocate’, we’re back in the studio writing and recording.

3. In terms of your career so far, how long have you been writing and performing as an artist?

We met around 18 months ago and were both looking to create something new, so we formed Night Games.

4. Would you say you prefer recording in the studio or playing live?

Both offer up different kinds of fulfilment. The creative writing/recording process is a lot more time consuming and the reward is in the development. But playing live is an instant hit of adrenaline. 

5. What is the most difficult challenge for you in the music industry?

The music industry has always been a pretty tough place, but thanks to free downloading, streaming and technological developments it’s even harder. The market is pretty oversaturated and it’s a real challenge to make yourself heard as a musician through the ocean of self-publicised artists. 

6. What is your biggest musical achievement to date?

Our first play and review on BBC Introducing London was a real moment for us. There are few greater feelings than hearing one of your tracks live on air knowing that people are listening.

7. When can we catch you playing live next? 

August 2016. The exact date is TBC but we have some really exciting spaces lined up so be sure to stay tuned!

8. Do you have any new material due for release soon?

We are working on some new material at the moment to release in line with the gig in August.

9. Do you have any industry related advice for emerging artists?

Find out what makes you unique and work on it.

10. What’s the best way for people to get in contact with you/keep up to date with the latest goings on?

11. What is your one major ambition for your career in music?

To play a gig on the Moon. Seriously.
