The Night VI | Heroine

Heroin. Heroine. It's probably best not to get them mixed up - one being a drug made from morphine, extracted from the opium poppy, the other "a woman admired for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities". I think The Night VI have the right choice here, although much like the drug, the band once more manage to craft another highly addictive track, sucking us ever further in to their spellbinding aura. "Heroine a femme fatal. She knows what she wants and how to get it but she'll ruin you much like the drug. She's like your mum's worst nightmare but there's another side to her one that raises you up and keeps you wanting more" describes Sophie-Rose Harper. With its simple guitar strummed patterns it definitely offers more intimacy than we're used to seeing as we get a more vulnerable side to the band, one that despite their previous tracks lyrical content, often was shied away from behind big towering melodies. Have a listen above.

Heroine is taken from the The Night VI's forthcoming newly announced "DIY" EP - set for release November 17 through Duly Noted Records. Being a physical only release it's limited to 500 copies, available first only from live shows. US fans will be able to pick up a special edition Heroine 7" vinyl via Turntable Kitchen this December.
