We’ve spent a good deal of 2015 grooving to Florio’s recent single “Red Flags”, a crisp slice of modern electronic pop that has crept its way from our headspaces and into heavy rotation on VanyaRadio. Now with the year winding down, the Boston quartet led by frontman and songwriter Dominic Florio is back with another blaze off the indie dance floor in “Night Falls,” a rousing, explosive alt-pop track that falls somewhere between the best of New Edition and Cut Copy as it mixes genres and sounds with relative ease.
The video, which we are very excited to premiere today on Vanyaland, shows Sir Florio getting a bit messy in the paint, a nice contract to the sharp cleanliness of the song itself. The “Night Falls” video was produced by Danny Chamberlain.
For better or worse, the paint slosh will be left at home this Monday, November 16, when Florio plays Brighton Music Hall in Allston, an opening round tilt supporting Seattle-based singer, songwriter, and spoken word artist Mary Lambert. We’re reluctant to even call it an opening duty, because this show already has the makings of a double-headliner revisionist look-back once Florio blows the fuck up. The Boston House Slam Team is also on the bill, and we can’t think of a better way to paint our Monday in colorful sounds.
