Night Beats are a riffy, bluesy, psyched-out garage trio based in Seattle, Washington. Singer/guitarist Danny Lee Blackwell left his native Dallas for the Pacific Northwest in 2009 and joined up with drummer and longtime friend James Traeger, working as a two-piece for a short time before recruiting bassist Tarek Wegner.
Night Beats' self-released single "H-Bomb" was picked up by Chicago indie Trouble in Mind Records, which reissued it as an EP in 2010. A split 10" with the UFO Club on the Reverberation Appreciation Society label arrived in early 2011, followed by Night Beats' self-titled debut LP on Trouble in Mind. The trio remained busy, evolving their sound over various single and compilation releases and delivering their follow-up LP, Sonic Bloom, in 2013. In 2014, bassist Wegner was replaced by newcomer Jakob Bowden, and the following year Night Beats signed a deal with London's Heavenly Recordings. With a retooled lineup and a new intensity to their sound, they delivered their third LP, Who Sold My Generation, in early 2016. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
