EDITORS’ NOTES

Night Terrors of 1927 are a partnership between ex–Rilo Kiley guitarist Blake Sennett and Jarrod Gorbel, erstwhile singer for folk-rockers The Honorary Title. But this joint venture owes little to either member's past. In place of the contemplative songwriting of their former bands, the duo's debut is a synth-heavy, cinematic soundscape—the kind of thing that's ideal for late-night drives through the streets of L.A., which the pair call home. From "Dust and Bones" to the Tegan & Sara–assisted "When You Were Mine,” the album’s soaring, larger-than-life melodies overflow with a righteous mix of heart-on-sleeve emotion and perfect popcraft.

TITLE TIME

About Night Terrors of 1927

Electronic-infused pop/rock duo Night Terrors of 1927 features the talents of former Rilo Kiley guitarist Blake Sennett and former the Honorary Title lead singer Jarrod Gorbel. Although Sennett and Gorbel had known each other since 2010, it wasn't until Gorbel relocated to Los Angeles in 2012 that the journeymen indie rockers reconnected and began writing songs together. Naming themselves after a chapter in a journal Gorbel's great-grandfather bequeathed to him, the duo moved quickly, signing with Atlantic and releasing the five-track EP Guilty Pleas in 2013. In 2015, Night Terrors of 1927 released their debut full-length album, Everything's Coming Up Roses, which included the Tegan and Sara duet "When You Were Mine." ~ Matt Collar
