..."The C86 generation might not have ever fully blossomed in its own time, but the trademark sound has been resurgent in recent years. The Pains of being Pure at Heart have been the most obvious beneficiaries, but Dark Days & Nights is Insect Guide’s own bid for such accreditation." (extracted from

Critically acclaimed Leeds band Insect Guide return with Dark Days And Nights, their 2nd album of jet black, beautifully crafted pop. Fans will find things have moved on since the band's first album 6ft In Love (an Uncut Debut Of The Month in November 2007) and 2008's EP of remixes by Spacemen 3 / Spectrum dream pop master Sonic Boom.
The dramatic, densely layered guitars of Stan Howells and black coffee vocals of Su Sutton are unmistakeable, but the addition of Chris Cooper (Pale Saints) on drums brings a burst of post-punk energy to the 10 tracks on this recording.
While the overall effect is accessible and unashamedly "pop", Insect Guide haven't lost any of their eclectic, experimental edge. From the ice-cool swagger of the title track to the gorgeous Lynchian lament Hearts Don't Break, from the sexy, sinister fever dream of Crushed, to the sparkling cinematic pop of This City, Dark Days And Nights is a masterclass in the creation of musical light and shade.
