Night Jewel to tour with Chairlift


Nite Jewel is pleased to announce North American tour dates with Chairlift, followed by a headlining date at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. Her Secretly Canadian debut One Second Of Love will be available March 6th. Nite Jewel will also be playing this year’s SXSW.

Nite Jewel, aka California native Ramona Gonzalez, first began her transcendent minimalist dance-pop escapades in the privacy of her own home in Los Angeles. With the aid of her multitrack cassette recorder and whatever keyboards, drum machines, and other instruments that were available to her, she very quickly developed her own unique sound – likened to that of a warped, lo-fi version of Late-80’s Freestyle Electro sensation Debbie Deb.

The One Second Of Love title track [available as a single now via iTunes] was recently named Best New Track on Pitchfork. They had this to say: “One Second Of Love reaches a new level. Whereas her previous recordings were capable only of hinting at Eno-like instrumentals, this song recalls them strongly, offering four minutes of funk-oriented pop with a crisp, galactic feel. Gonzalez’ voice booms over the snappy synth grooves, and a mid-tempo drum beat provides a cool, danceable sway.”
