Prior to meeting Nightjacket, Canadian born singer-songwriter Wasse had been floating around Los Angeles, playing with and singing in various bands, exploring everything from pop to heavily alternative. With some time between her other projects, Digital Daggers and DeadXLife, Wasse found herself desiring an additional musical outlet. The opportunity to collaborate with Nightjacket presented itself and she jumped at it. Nightjacket guitarist Jordan Wiggins sent her a few new demos, and she zeroed in on the track that would become “Lonely Archer”. Channeling longtime idols Hope Sandoval and Neil Young, Wasse quickly wrote lyrics and melody for the song, and upon meeting Wiggins and multi-instrumentalist Louie Schultz for the first time, recorded vocals for “Lonely Archer” that very day.
Additional songs quickly followed, ranging from the psychedelic Americana of “Lucky” to the analog synth-fueled “Burn Through Your Atmosphere” and the jangly, alternative pop of “Just a Little”. The new collection of songs will help make up the tracklist for Nightjacket’s upcoming fall EP, Following The Curves, with a full-length album to follow in the first quarter of 2021.
