I’d like you all to please gather around as you’re about to listen to a true masterpiece. A beautiful alternative rock track with hints of Indie. “Bruised Love” is a pleasant surprise and a true relief for all the struggles still haunting us this 2023.
I’m very glad and excited to introduce you to Tyler Elden & the Night Figures, a newly formed musical collective from New Jersey & Philadelphia, led by Tyler Elen and members of the national touring progressive NJ metal act In The Presence of Wolves. A mix between heavy and sweet, “Bruised Love” raises the bar for its genre and delights us with its accomplishments.
What can be said about this single apart from that it sounds amazing and the melodic structure is beautifully dynamic, unexpected, and original. A marvelous experience from start to end, this song deserves all the praise and all your plays!
“This single displays the more aggressive side of my songwriting. It’s a good introduction to what the group as a unit bring to the table. Vini, Ty, and Jim are seasoned musicians coming from a plethora of backgrounds. It’s an interesting combination of folks who can elevate anything I throw at them. I’ve been in their musical circles for years, so it’s fascinating to see them work on the songs I present them.” –Tyler Elden
The band is known for collaborating with highly praised and experienced producers like Christopher Hawthorne (Matthew Mercury & Francesca Blanchard) in their last single, and now with Matt Weber (A Great Big Pile of Leaves), who recorded the track at the Gradwell House in New Jersey.
“I try to keep the creative vibe as loose and spontaneous as possible. The creation and recording of this song took less than two writing rehearsals, followed by a recording session the following week. It’s a testament to everyone’s ability to add their personal flair without getting too precious during the process.”Tyler Elden
What an outstanding delivery and masterful craft, everything from songwriting to production, to mixing and mastering feels polished and carefully tuned. Taking influence from early 2000s post-hardcore with the melodic sense of indie rock groups such as Nada Surf & Death Cab for Cutie, this band finds pride in being a high-energy live act as they begin to tour up and down the east coast in 2023.
Tyler Elden & the Night Figures will continue to consistently release singles over the next few months, so please stay tuned to know more about them and catch their upcoming EP!
“ “Bruised Love” explores chasing comfort & relief through any means necessary. This state of constant desperation often leads to losing people close to you.” –Tyler Elden
