The Moonless Nights
The Moonless Nights is a duet dreamscape-of-a musical collaboration between Adam Arcuragi and Jesse Epstein, recorded at the Moon Recording Company studio in Silver Lake, Los Angeles early 2020, before the quar. Both notable songwriters of their own respective accord and renown, Arcuragi and Epstein came together to write upon a suggestion from a mutual friend after Arcuragi had been ruminating on his admiration of the Hope Sandoval and The Warm Inventions album, Bavarian Fruit Bread. In the dining room at Musso & Frank, pointing out which table was Charlie Chaplin’s, their mutual friend insisted that the two sit down together to see what they might dream up. Sometimes it just comes together, and The Moonless Nights just came together, with mutual admiration for similar influences, and strengths in songwriting and melody from their years of writing individually, the EP happened quickly and with ease, so they’re setting it on a course to be released and available, wherever music is streamed or sold on August 7, 2020.
