SWIT’s Long Player Of The Week: Nyctophilia by Taffy

Taffy with The Charlatans

‘Nyctophilia’ (love of darkness) is the new album by Taffy, one of SWIT’s favourite bands. It’s probably their most cohesive work to date. Everything you expect from a Taffy record is present and correct – complex, cascading arrangements, dream sequence lushness, candy-sweet vocals and shimmering guitars. RunicWade and Lavendery really stand out for me, the sparser production highlighting the songwriting skills of Iris.

When asked if she was happy with the results, she told us “Oh yes. I think we were able to do our best at that moment. Usually, the sound engineer and I do all the mixing but this time I wasn’t quite sure of the first mix so I remixed all over again which made the album come out several months behind. And now, you loving the album made it worth the delay, thank you!”

We’re blushing. I could go on , but I think you’d be better off just listening for yourself. Check back in a couple of weeks for the full interview with Iris. Have a great weekend y’all.
