As British punk-hop renegades Sad Night Dynamite head back out on tour, BasementApproved take a look at some choice snaps (and snacks) from their US leg.
With collaborators including IDK and Moonchild Sannelly, British duo Sad Night Dynamite are setting themselves up as Plague Island’s take on the post-pandemic boyband. Tearing up the rulebook and offering up experimental music and visuals with a healthy dose of grit to reflect a world in chaos, their recent mixtape Volume II was a lovechild of the pandemic, and has quickly garnered critical acclaim for its blend of unflinchingly real storytelling and heady surrealism.
Delivering an otherworldly blend of punk, good old britpop, lofi rap bars, and some new age electronica for good measure, Sad Night Dynamite are carving a niche in an industry where doing something different feels nigh on impossible.
Having spent the last few months supporting Glass Animals on their US tour, the sons of Somerset – Josh and Archie – are back home getting some much needed respite ahead of their hectic summer playing shows and festivals across Europe, the US and Canada. Ever fond of documenting Brits abroad (for science, like David Attenborough), BasementApproved stayed in touch with Sad Night Dynamite during their first US tour to get an exclusive look at boys favourite moments and what kept them going on the road.
