Astari Nite channels an obscure beauty in the crossfire between new-wave and post-punk. Formed in 2008 after years of internalized ideas and melodies, the band quickly became the referents of Post punk and New Wave in Florida. This four-piece band consisting of Mychael Ghost (lead vocals), Illia Tulloch (drums), M. Sallons (bass) and Howard Melnick (guitar) explores the themes of love, submission, magic and melancholy through their dense and quasi-cinematic productions. Inspired by iconic acts like The Cure, New Order, Depeche Mode, and Placebo, Astari Nite offers a timeless combination of thoughtful lyricism, stirring vocals, and 80’s instrumentalism. Along with headlining numerous national and international shows, Astari Nite has shared the stage with Peter Murphy, The Psychedelic Furs, Cold Cave, VOWWS, Modern English, and Andy Rourke of The Smiths.
The band recently released the video for “Lovesick” was premiered on Post-Punk.com. The track was mastered by Emily Lazar who’s work trajectory includes David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Foo Fighters and Sonic Youth to name a few.
