Watch Daniel Davies Play Through His New “Spies” EP in His LA Studio

The John Carpenter collaborator performs the five tracks with accompaniment by John Spiker.

A few weeks back, Daniel Davies—who you may know from his work in his godfather John Carpenter’s recent musical output, or as the biological son of The Kinks’ Dave Davies, or as an interim live vocalist for CKY for a few short stints—released his moody, synth-driven Spies EP which sounds very much of the same ilk as the recent Lost Themes records he’s helped to assemble. Landing in that same sweet spot between horror-film ambiance and a Drive-core neon moodiness, the five tracks on Spies inhabit a world of their own, aided by the album art of visual and musical aesthete Jesse Draxler.

Following the release of the EP, Davies took to his LA studio to perform all five tracks with the help of John Spiker, who’s also worked with Carpenter as well as Brandon Flowers, Tenacious D, and Filter. Filmed with the exact kind of mood lighting you’d expect, watch the full 24-minute performance below, and check out the EP—out now via Sacred Bones—here.
