Night Things is an Echo Park based dream-pop band heavily inspired by 80’s new wave dance music. Main singer/songwriters Zach Shields and Maize LaRue/Olinger met years ago in theSilverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir, when Maize was 17 and singing for Zach’s prior band Dead Man’s Bones. Originally released under their previous name Badlands, their debut single “Sleeping Beauty” received positive reviews from Pitchfork, Bullett, Nylon, and Stereogum who premieried their music video last fall. They’ve been compared to Still Corners, a modern day re-imagining of Mazzy Star, with “the sort of tone Bradford Cox mastered on Halcyon Digest” (Stereogum). The band is currently working on a full length record with plans to release later this year.
