WATCH: Night Terrors of 1927 Perform “Running in Place” Under Moonlight in Joshua Tree
Blake Sennett (of Rilo Kiley, The Elected) and Jarrod Gorbel (of The Honorary Title) capture the moment in their Live in the Moonlight series.
After the end of their main individual musical projects, Rilo Kiley and The Honorary Title, Blake Sennett and Jarrod Gorbel had no plans to be in another band soon—or even be in a band with each other. However, after Sennett produced some of Gorbel’s solo music in 2010, the duo decided to write together, the material of which became their debut release as Night Terrors of 1927, Everything Is Coming Up Roses, which was released in January.
Night Terrors of 1927 recently begun a video series, aptly entitled Live in the Moonlight, in which the band perform songs under the cover of darkness in the middle of the night out in Joshua Tree National Park, California. However, the sessions were filmed with the new Sony A2S camera, so it’s not quite pitch black; the camera is able to film pretty crisp color HD in low-level light, so thanks to the full moon, we can see Sennett and Gorbel play, washed in a beautiful glow.
Watch the premiere of “Running in Place” below, and catch Night Terrors of 1927 live on tour this spring, including a stop at Coachella.
Evrything Is Coming Up Roses is available now via Atlantic Records.
