NIGHT PLOW announce debut album + share new single, an insuperable symphony of 21st century sounds that crosses any music border

Night Plow is the coming together of complete strangers Tim Lefebvre and Gregory Macdonald, and on the 24th February, the duo are set to release their self-titled debut album via the Toronto-based label, We Are Busy Bodies. Taking in influences including Kraftwerk, Andy Stott, Vangelis, Photek, Hans Zimmer, Radiohead, Undo K From Hot and The Avalanches, Night Plow is an insuperable symphony of 21st century sounds that crosses any music border.

They say, “never meet your heroes”. Well add to that, “never meet your collaborator.” Lefebvre and Macdonald both contributed parts to the 2021 critically acclaimed album ‘Lee “Scratch” Perry’s Guide To The Universe’ by New Age Doom and despite having never met in person and only speaking on the phone once, decided they shared enough common musical ground between them to step forward and start a brand new experimental project. Lefebvre would improvise beats and bass lines in his studio in Tuscon and then send Macdonald snippets of ideas which he would then edit into songs by adding synths and effects and then mixing them into more realized finished tracks.

Throughout his wide-ranging career, Tim Lefebvre has amassed a reputation for being one of the world’s most innovative bassists. The Foxboro-native’s creative playing style is an addictive blend of jazz improvisation, rock undertones, and electronic grooves that can be heard on his appearances on over 150 recordings, ranging from Grammy award-winning albums such as David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’ (2016) to the soundtracks of classic films including ‘The Departed’ (2006). Gregory Macdonald has been playing keyboards and singing backup with Canadian legends Sloan since 2006. He also plays in Limblifter and has been in Butch Walker’s band. In 2021, he released a solo album under the name Cola Wars which received widespread acclaim.

Ahead of the album release, Night Plow are pleased to share their debut single ‘$1.49 Day’ (out now), a pulsing, pummelling mix of warming electronica and cyberpunk.
