The 5th full-length album from Nights on Venus is again all instrumental, part chill-out, more electronic, some uptempo, and arguably the most melodic and musically diverse NoV album recorded to date. Includes the cover of David Bowie's "Speed of Life".

I think what we are most haunted by – even more so than our eventual demise in the physical – is time. Our perceptions of it, through the passage of time and we speak of its ravages (on the physical form), or when we feel like there’s never enough of it or alternately when we have too much of it on our hands. This is a "concept" album in that sense.

“There Is Only Now” was the first song I recorded for what would eventually become this album. Shortly after that, Prince died on April 21st, 2016. I had no idea then that his death would have such an effect on me. It literally threw me, my thoughts, back in time to the summer of 1984 and a very intense experience for which his classic album “Purple Rain” would become the soundtrack. That was completely unexpected. Much of the new album was written and recorded during the time last year when I was revisiting a lot of memories and specific events from that summer 32, now 33, years ago (e.g., “Ghost Towns of the 1980s”).

Nights on Venus Golden, Colorado

Nights on Venus began and grew out of a solo project by multi-instrumentalist / producer Craig Carrington Thomas in October, 2010. Atmospheric, hypnotic, smooth, ethereal, and “brain-wavin” are words that have been used to describe NoV’s music. All instrumentals so far, he calls it “ether rock” - a hybrid of ethereal keyboards and surf music. NoV/Craig is based in Golden, Colorado. ... more
