N1ghtmar3cat Releases New Album, RAT RACE

August 5th 2022
Dave Johnston has created a characteristic flavour of indie-electronica | EDM | alt-pop that fuses his rhythmic nous with cinematic sound design and introspective, hook-laden vocals.
This immersive and often unexpected concoction demonstrates the many facets of his production, composition and songwriting arsenal, built up over a decade as a multi-genre producer and performer (Villainy, Delivery Boyz, MISSY, Yoko-Zuna, The Zoup).

Following the 2019 self-titled debut album described as “music that you feel deep within your soul” (muzic.net.nz), n1ghtmar3cat steps things up on sophomore record RAT RACE, with stomping title track Rat Race (feat. MISSY) leading the charge as the release day single.

The album has already seen the singles Don’t Lie; High Hopes; and Hurting Myself (and I Think I Like It). High Hopes grabbed the attention of the Spotify curators, bagging features on New Music Friday AU/NZ, Top Shelf Electronic and other coveted editorial playlists.

Written and produced by Johnston in isolation, RAT RACE channels artists such as The Weeknd, Jon Hopkins, Banks and Flume, combining textural, atmospheric passages with moments of intense energy to draw the listener into the sonic world of n1ghtmar3cat.
