"A Modern Day Version of Blondie"

Critics Praise "Infectious Rock Sounds" From Indie Duo The Goodnight Darlings: "One of those bands that instantly becomes a welcome edition to your daily playlist"

EP Release Concert Confirmed For November 19th

Early reviews have praised the "infectious rock sounds" of indie duo The Goodnight Darlings, describing them as "a modern-day version of Blondie," and as "one of those bands that instantly becomes a welcome edition to your daily playlist."  With a new EP ‘All I Ever Wanted', available now, the duo looks ahead to a release concert on November 19th at Bowery Electric. In a series of thoughtful interviews, below, the pair provides an articulate road map to their new release, their talented collaborators, and their epic new music video -- for focus track, ‘Empire Vampire'.

The Goodnight Darlings are real-life married couple Kat Auster (vocals), and Wilson Jaramillo (guitar, beats/synth). Their sound/style finds its home somewhere between where The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Santigold and early Blondie might hang out. The Village Voice described Auster as "Gwen Stefani's evil twin," and Jaramillo has recorded and/or toured with The Fugees, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and more - additional biographical info is below.

‘All I Ever Wanted' was recorded at Brooklyn's Studio G (Tom Waits, Black Keys, Iggy Pop). Producer Tony Maimone (member of Pere Ubu, bass player with Frank Black and They Might Be Giants,) worked with the band on their new tracks, and two renowned musicians contributed to upcoming EP as well: drummer Joe Tomino (Matisyahu and Dub Trio,) and a rap cameo from Jabee (Emmy Award Winning MC from Oklahoma, associated with hip-hop acts Murs, El-P, and Run the Jewels.) The EP also features a re-mixed version of ‘Empire Vampire' via producer Nic Hard (Taylor Swift, Joey Ramone,) and includes re-cut vocals and a revisiting of the raw instrumental tracks. The band is offering fans a free download of the song ‘Empire Vampire', via this link: http://empirevampire.viin...

AXS/EXAMINER Interview: The Goodnight Darlings share exclusive sneak peak of their new EP

The Goodnight Darlings are one of those bands that instantly become a welcome edition to your daily playlist the moment that you hear their infectious rock sounds. The New York duo recently released an epic music video for their grand dance track, "Empire Vampire." As a bonus, The Goodnight Darlings are sharing a free download of the song to fans in advance of the fall release of their new EP, All I Ever Wanted.
AXS got a chance to catch up with Kat (vocals) and Wilson (guitars) about the "Empire Vampire " project and how it relates to their new EP.
AXS: Congratulations on "Empire Vampire," the song is so many things at once - menacing, empowering, dark, soaring. Can you tell me a little about the song writing process?
Kat: Thank you so much, Laurie! I'm very happy because I think you're able to hear the setting in which it was written. We wrote "Empire Vampire" driving through New York City real late at night. We got the urge to play music and we were heading over to our practice studio. Wilson decided to play me some beats and synths he'd been working on over the car radio. We were flying through green lights, which are normally stuffed by gridlock, but it was that awesome witching hour when the streets are finally pretty empty. I was hit by this overwhelming love of Manhattan, and I could see the Empire State building blazing with light - and I thought of how the city belongs to me at this hour. And then I thought of all the blondes that came before me, running and riding the nightclub scene. Haha! I started fantasizing about Deborah Harry and Madonna, Danceteria and Max's Kansas City. It's an eternal jig. There will always be the next baby blonde giving her best on the dance floor. Trying to "take the most" of the City. Trying to "eat the apple", the Big Apple, "all in one big bite." These lyrics started rising up, and I knew the song was going to be about this magical NYC nightlife and the "vampires" that choose to prowl.
Wilson: The guitars during the verse came after hearing Kat's melody. When I recorded the guitars, I recorded one ambient track of different feedback tones & bends to use here and there if needed. Nic Hard left it all in and gave it this dark, eerie feel. Perfect!
AXS: Is it difficult to turn over your song to someone else like you did for Nic Hard's remix of "Empire Vampire" or do you find that collaboration to be exciting?
Wilson: It was a little difficult for me to let go at first because I'm so used to doing things myself, my own way, and with whatever tools I can get my hands on. I just wasn't sure how much of my creative freedom I had to let go, but I was excited to see how Nic could shine up the quality of the production and couldn't wait to hear his professional input. He really made the beats thump and had a lot of input in the vocal style.
Kat: Yes, Nic inspired me a lot. He honed in on my vocal performance like a cool acting director. I studied theater at Juilliard, and I remember we'd bring in all of this heartfelt raw material, and then a great director/teacher could extract more out of your performance by asking the right questions, provoking a new angle in the process. It felt so fun to have that again, but in music. He'd give me guidance and imagery to work with, so now we have little secrets in the track that are special to me, that I hope give the listening experience a greater texture. Like Nic had me try a take imagining a certain animal while I was recording the "I'm howling" section of the chorus. That ended up being the take we liked best.
AXS: The video for "Empire Vampire" is visually striking and tells a riveting story. How did the concept come about?
Kat: Well, it's pretty incredible. The song literally gave us a new "Empire" of friends. It was through inviting the right artists to collaborate that the story unfolded. We were touring through some Southern states, on our way from Miami to SXSW in Austin, and we played a show in Orlando. I re-connected with a beloved junior high friend of mine, Isis Masoud, who was living there. She was amazing - she promoted our show with her friends and college radio station WPRK 91.5. I was so grateful, because local support means everything to an indie band. I thanked her by giving her some unreleased songs, one of which was "Empire Vampire." Next thing I know, she calls me saying that she is starting this incredible dance company called Close Up Experience, and could she use the song for their first full scale music video production? It's one of those phone calls where you feel a quake as you say, "YES," and you know an adventure just began.
AXS: Did you have this imagery in mind as you were writing the song or did these Aristocratic Vampires emerge later when developing the video.
Kat: These characters are definitely larger than life and certainly bigger than my initial ideas. That's the best part. All I knew was that the video had to be about the greatest all-night party ever thrown, and I knew that being a "Vampire" in this story meant being your most elevated self. From there, it was really director Roger Ingraham who introduced the storyline about Goddess Iconography, transformation, and the battle of good and evil forces. Collaborating with Roger brought in a wonderful mystical energy. He had just been filming a documentary on the Zulu Shamans in Africa so he had spirituality on the tip of his tongue. Roger was also the youngest filmmaker ever to have a feature film at Sundance with a vampire film, called "Moonshine," so he was our on-site Vampire specialist!
The look of the piece came alive because of the talented Joey Bevan, Abbi Rose, and Charlie Wilkinson of The Glam Squad UK. It was such a large cast of dancers and - even under time limitations - they worked incredibly hard on immaculate style details for every performer. We succeeded, and everyone felt like the best version of themselves. For instance, I had the most massive gorgeous braided crown on my head for the Golden Goddess look - it must've weighed 20 lbs! It took a few hours to weave, place, and build this wonderful tiara. And then when Isis found an abandoned Gothic mansion as a film location, we officially had a kingdom for the "Empire."
AXS: There is a lot of performance art featured in the video. Are all of the acrobats and dancers from the same troupe?
Kat: It's a real range. Some had never met before and some are married. Haha! It was a blend of friends from all corners of the industry - from beginner dance students, to lead members of The Orlando Ballet. Bernard Hazan, wife Alison Fraser and daughter Naomi perform in Cirque de Soleil. Bernard's actually Cirque de Soleil's current billboard image. He did things on our shoot that I didn't know were humanly possible. He also throws knives at his wife, Alison, which I think takes the husband and wife trust level up a notch. We got to work with a cool group of magicians too! Phillip Kaiser, Anton James, and Sword Swallower Will Rotten. The youngest dancers were students that Isis was teaching at her company Close Up Experience, which coaches them how to dance in front of the camera. Wilson and I teared up watching the students come up with their own dance solos to our music. It was so raw and sincere.
AXS: Are the other songs on All I Ever Wanted in the same vein as "Empire Vampire?"
Wilson: Not really, "Empire Vampire" is our danciest track on this EP and the only one with only drum machines throughout the song. Our other songs have drum machines as well, but accompanied by a massive drummer friend, Joe Tomino, from Dub Trio and Matisyahu. Some of the other songs have a dance element but you have to dance a bit more aggressive to it. When we play "Empire Vampire" live, it makes people dance. Being that it is a longer song, at some point or another you have to give in to the beat and move! For this one I use five different guitar pedals - not including the two that are on the whole time - Different delays & distortions for texture...
Kat: Our songs tend to explore a lot of different vibes! Like our new song "Tough Act" has the hardest edge on the EP.
Wilson: It makes your head bounce.
Kat: And it has a dub section that I love, which Wilson, Joe, and producer Tony Maimone absolutely slayed together. I think the songs each have their own character, and the common thread is simply that it's us.
AXS: What's coming up on the horizon? Do you have plans to release a full LP? Are you heading out on tour?
Wilson: We have a lot of material that could become an LP but [we're] hoping we can get investors involved so we can get back into the studio, create, press CDs/vinyl and hit the road!
Kat: We are so thoroughly open to the adventure of this. I'm so happy I get to play music with my husband, Wilson, and we can pack up our little Mustang convertible and drive around this fine country meeting people and playing shows. Arin Crumley just filmed a short video about our story, and it made me reflect with gratitude. I want to keep touring as much as possible, and hopefully overseas soon, too. The All I Ever Wanted EP comes out this Fall!
AXS: Do you have anything else that you would like to share with AXS readers about the future of The Goodnight Darlings?
Kat: Just that I'd love to meet them one way or another, and hope to hear from them on Facebook or at a show!

VENTS MAGAZINE - INTERVIEW FEATURE
By RJ Frometa 9/29/15  READ IT HERE:
http://ventsmagazine.com/...

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Kat: Hey, we're doing great! Thank you for having us.
You have recently released a new single Empire Vampire - can you talk to us more about it?
Kat: Yes- It's been a very magical song for us, both during the writing process, and then by bringing us to a whole new community of artists while creating the music video. Watch it here! https://www.youtube.com/w... It started with Wilson writing these epic, mysterious beats & synths.
Wilson: I used my old drum machine- An old Roland-R8 with an 808 card to write a draft. Then I re-programmed it on "Reason" because it has more sounds/samples.
Kat: He showed me a sketch of the song over our car radio while we were driving through Manhattan late at night. First of all, I love a good driving song. And this one just glides. Wilson's guitars were unfurling this dreamy atmosphere to me.
I felt inspired to write about all night party people, and the intrigue of New York City. I recalled the special, hidden dance floors where "we dance with greed, we take the most of it." And when I caught a glimpse of the Empire State building, I realized, it's an Empire Vampire. A city of beautiful creatures who stay out all night- hunting their own answer to the mystery.
After writing this song, and a bunch of new ones, we went on tour all over the southern US. We played Orlando, driving from Miami and heading to SXSW. I was so happy to re-connect with my dear friend from junior high school, Isis Masoud. I gave her the unreleased song "Empire Vampire" as a thank-you for being so cool to us and supporting our show.
It's funny how when you give something away for free, you get back more than you give.
Isis called us up later on, when we were back home in New York City, and she asked if we would partner with her company Close Up Experience to build a full scale, dance music video for the song. I was so intrigued-I felt like the song was taking on a life of its own and it was now leading us!
How did you guys come up with the concept for the video and how was the filming experience?
Kat: The concept was a developing picture as the artists began to sign on- each one bringing their unique gifts! The concept really arose from trusting our instincts..
So once the Glam Squad UK was on board, we knew it was going to be the best looking party ever thrown! Joey Bevan, Abbi Rose, and Charlie Wilkinson provided art direction/styling/make-up and hair- which was no small feat considering the enormity of the cast, 50+! They create with such flair and abundance- I believe they performed real magic on the shoot. Learn about Team Vampire here - http://www.thegoodnightda...
The whole shoot seemed paved by charm and synchronicity. For instance, director Roger Ingraham had a vivid dream that I would have a huge white snake for my white costume look. And then, while driving with the film crew to the first day of filming, they passed a man carrying a giant white snake. Roger said, "That's my snake!" And sure enough, they turned the car around, and Roger convinced this cross country truck driver on a short break that he and his snake named Ramses, needed to be a part of our music video.
Next thing I know- Roger appears in the make-up room and asks me, "How would you feel about holding a 60 lb white python in this scene?" So incredible! But I hate snakes! And yet I was so determined to saying yes to all-things-adventurous that I said "Sure". I'm so glad I did. Ramses was a beautiful and surprisingly playful snake. We got along like dance partners. As soon as I was going for a turn, or a look, he would line up with me; it was an amazing feeling. But he was so heavy, and I had to keep "treadmilling" him, which means supporting movement along his belly to create the illusion that he's slithering. It was like lifting weights.
While remembering the experience- I can't leave out the fascinating location. The haunted Howey mansion really provided all the mood and character we needed. It was such a scary place to film in! None of us could use the bathroom alone! Haha!
Wilson: I love spooky & I love social history so I checked every closet, cabinet, & hole in the wall that I could find! I took thousands of pictures and soaked in the energy of the house. I kind of wanted to sleep there to see how quiet the night is or isn't in there.
Kat: There was a really cool lady who made sure we could film there. A huge thanks to Jacklyn R Nemchik Cheat-ham for supporting the arts, and for making sure the beauty and history of the house gets celebrated.
You guys brought some top notch dancers from Orlando Ballet to Cirque Du Soleil - was there a selection process or a casting call?
Kat: Honestly, as the producer, Isis Masoud truly spearheaded the cast. She is very magnetic and attracts the most luminous performers. Almost everyone was a good friend, or friend of friend!
There was, however a selection process that happened with the youngest dancers on set. This group auditioned for the chance to study dance on film with Isis' company, Close Up Experience. Wilson and I adored meeting these students. It was life changing to see such young dancers interpret and feel our music with such depth and raw energy. I'll think of their movement now when I write dance songs.
The single comes off your new EP All I Ever Wanted - what´s the story behind the title?
Kat: I had the most challenging year of my life last year. My mom was diagnosed with Cancer and we fought very hard until she passed away in December. The experience turned my insides upside down. Like everything I thought I knew was microscopic, and I was floating around the atmosphere. But then when I accepted grief, certain belongings returned to me. Like exactly who and what I care most about..
"All I Ever Wanted" is a little dig at myself for thinking that some petty things mattered, but then a reflection on what's most important. It's also this fun permission to really live life to the fullest like a little kid on my birthday- because it's all so precious.
I have made it my mission to fill this year attempting to make beautiful art and new friends. My mom was never happier than when I performed. And it just so happens, we have had fantastical blessings with creating this year. For instance- I've always wanted to play with drummer Joe Tomino of Dub Trio & Matisyahu- and he was able to play on this record. Then we imagined that there'd be a cool rap section in the song "Start Up" and we got the triumphant MC Jabee performing on it.
In a way- this EP is "All I Ever Wanted". It's my light at the end of a tunnel.
How was the recording and writing process for the EP? Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Wilson: Some of the songs happened almost instantly, I'd write a quick beat on Reason after coming up with a guitar part and build from there. Kat's melodies would just float over the notes & rhythms like they were there forever. One of our songs we wrote right before going on tour to SXSW. It has an extended dance part because we learned from our last tour of the south, set times are a bit longer in some clubs. One song is based around this one beat which Kat was drawn to from the first time she heard it... This beat was written on the train. While everyone's staring at their phones, playing Candy Crush, I'm usually leaning on a door writing beats on iMaschine.
Kat: I notice 3 out of 5 songs on the EP are like anthems for battle! I truly learned recently, it's not about whether you win or lose, but how you fight. And surviving all the challenges in my family this year- I feel like I fought a good fight. I'm happy you can hear it in my words on this EP. We even laid in a Bruce Lee quote at the top of "Tough Act"! I think there's a lot of strength and survival in these songs.
Haha! It cracks me up! I just remembered that Engineer Matt Labozza at Studio G said that if he was a boxer, he'd want "Start Up" to be his anthem getting into the ring. I think that's awesome.
What was it like to work with Tony Maimone and how did that relationship develop?
I had been looking high and low for the right fit producer and the right studio. And then we took a night off to go support our good friend Rick Goetz who manages artist Candice Anitra to sit in on a small show she was doing at Studio G. On our way there it clicked for us that we had heard of Studio G from a drummer that we really admire, Joe Tomino. We always meant to check it out- but just didn't cross paths with it..And then of course, trying to find Dobbin St for the first time from the L train was crazy and made us a little late. I was mortified to walk-in late to such a tiny show, so Wilson and I split up and snuck into whatever seats we could get, and I sat down in the last row next to a man with a really cool aura and smile who pointed out that I dropped my headphones. Turned out to be Tony Maimone, owner of Studio G. I think fate had a big hand in setting this all up. We spoke and ended up solidifying a recording plan within the week..
So while Tony has worked with some great bands, in some ways they don't match with your sound - were you looking for something different?
Wilson: We're all connected by our love of music. Working with Tony was more than I could have ever expected! We recorded a demo, sent him a link to a secret page with the songs and went from there. Studio G has walls of amazing gear vintage & modern, an amazing microphone collection, a wall of vintage amps, vintage keyboards, synths, piano, vintage Neve & SSL boards which we got to use & record on! ...I felt like a kid in a toy store. Tony's a great host, very generous with his creativity. He does everything with love. He graced our recordings by playing bass (which I was secretly hoping he would do for at least one song!), piano, & synth.
In what way would you say your previous backgrounds have influenced your current music?
Wilson: My experience with music as a musician & a listener has always been an exploration through sound, rhythm, vibes & moods. I thank WFMU for taking me further out than I thought I could ever go at an early age! Once I started making music it was always on the Rock side of the world. One of the 1st songs I figured out on my own was Joan Jett's version of Crimson & Clover.. Once I mastered it, I sped it up intensely!
I have always been on the Rock side of a building but Hip Hop always had me climbing through the window.
Any plans to hit the road?
Kat: Yes, always. We want to play as much as possible.
Wilson: We're booking shows now... that reminds me, if you have an art space, club, hall (with a killer sound system is a plus)and interested in having us perform contact: booking@thegoodnightdarlings.com
What else is happening next in The Goodnight Darlings´ world?
Wilson: Continually writing music in hopes to record an LP next. We want to keep touring, designing shirts and record record record!

AXS/Examiner - Exclusive Song Premiere: The Goodnight Darlings channel NYC on 'Start Up'
http://www.axs.com/exclus...

On Oct. 6, The Goodnight Darlings - comprised of real-life married couple and talented musicians, Kat and Wilson - are set to drop their powerful new EP, All I Ever Wanted. In advance of the album's release date, AXS has an exclusive premiere of their energetic endurance anthem, "Start Up."
Inspired by her time, "surviving her youth and the wilderness of New York City," Kat created lyrics that perfectly compliment the subway-inspired composition which Wilson wrote on a journey from Brooklyn to Manhattan. "Start Up" was recorded this past July at Studio G Brooklyn (Tom Waits, Black Keys, Iggy Pop) as a part of All I Ever Wanted, which is currently available for pre-order on iTunes .
Though they are primarily known as a rock group, The Goodnight Darlings give listeners a healthy dose of hip-hop on "Start Up" thanks to a special cameo by the award-winning MC, Jabee . A bare beat serves as the perfect backdrop for Jabee to add his flow with precision and intensity.
"Start Up" commands listeners' attention from the very first note with Kat's bewitching vocals building in intensity until the heavy-hitting chorus comes in at full blast. Jabee's appearance gives the song added musical depth as his hip-hop style bends effortlessly in with The Goodnight Darlings cool rock 'n' roll vibe. Following the release of All I Ever Wanted, The Goodnight Darlings will be performing in New York City on Nov. 19 with further upcoming plans to tour "as much as possible." They are also hoping to head back into the studio for a new full-length album in the not-so-distant future.
Last August, AXS got a chance to ask The Goodnight Darlings a few questions about their recording process, their epic video for "Empire Vampire" and their future plans. "Our songs tend to explore a lot of different vibes! Like our new song 'Tough Act' has the hardest edge on the EP," Kat said. "And it has a dub section that I love, which Wilson, Joe (Tomino), and producer Tony Maimone absolutely slayed together. I think the songs each have their own character, and the common thread is simply that it's us." Wilson added, "It makes your head bounce."  Bounce your head to the sounds of "Start Up" by watching the video above exclusively on AXS and click here to pre-order All I Ever Wanted, featuring "Empire Vampire," "Tough Act" and more, on iTunes. Keep reading AXS for more music news, reviews and tour announcements.

HUFFINGTON POST
Exclusive Video Premiere - Empire Vampire
8/12/15, by Michael Ragogna - Watch ‘Empire Vampire' here:
http://www.huffingtonpost...

As accompanied the HUFFINGTON POST video premiere, Kat Auster offered these further thoughts on the video:
"Our video was directed by Sundance alumnus Roger Ingraham, and was shot in an abandoned 1920s mansion in Florida. Our collaborators include producer/creative director/choreographer Isis Masoud of Close-Up Experience. Isis was actually an old junior high school friend of mine! So here we are, an indie rock band collaborating with an up and coming dance company--but also childhood friends reuniting with a vision. Roger's message as a director encourages the artist to be their very best and allow themselves to be positively "transformed" by the project. This fits wonderfully with my song lyrics in 'Empire Vampire,' written about striving to get the most out of the city: 'Eat the apple all in one big bite,' 'Dance with greed, take the most of it!' Being part of the Empire of Vampires means being your most elevated self. My character in the video is a Goddess of Light inspiring positive change upon my Empire. Roger feels strongly about empowering women through Goddess iconography. I also feel very strongly about encouraging female power. The idea of positive transformation fits perfectly with the Close-Up Experience approach to dance production. Isis is educating these young dancers how to dance for the film medium through the experience of creating positive, inspiring art."

More about Kat Auster and Wilson Jaramillo:
Singer Kat Auster, (Juilliard Theatre grad, EMI/SONY song writer, and former coach on MTV's hit TV show "Made",) brings explosive energy to each live performance. She was nicknamed "Gwen Stefani's evil twin" by The Village Voice.

Guitarist/Programmer Wilson Jaramillo has recorded and toured arenas internationally with various music icons and Grammy award-winning producers, including: The Fugees, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, DMC, and Pras. The Fugees nicknamed Jaramillo "the punk" and "the scientist" due to his mind-blasting energy and impressive array of 13 guitar pedals.

"Auster brings her pop rock singing into Jaramillo's eclectic music that spans hypnotic beats, New Wave, and dance punk. Auster's voice commands attention immediately with a younger Deborah Harry feel. Fiery, danceable, with an indie-tronic feel- glows with undeniable energy..." The Daily Vault

The duo has also created an EPK to tell their love story, both the love of music -- and each other. They collaborated on the EPK with the aforementioned Roger Ingraham and Arin Crumley (Arin's Award-Winning Film & video series ‘Four-Eyed Monsters' led to him being named a ‘Top 20 Media Mogul' by The Wall Street Journal.) Further details re the EPK will be announced soon.
