Rain To Rust Returns With Collaborative Single, ‘Dead Violets Night’

Following on from albums, ‘Flowers Of Doubt’ (2019) and ‘Stillborn Flowers’ (2020), Mert Yıldız – otherwise known as RAIN TO RUST – has join forces with artist N.L.P for single, ‘Dead Violets Night.’

The song is a rewriting of a song off Rain To Rust’s ‘Stillborn Flowers’ album: new instrumentation, new lyrics and a new approach. It’s built on analog synth lines and the vocal interplay between two artists with Peter Hook-laden bass leads on top. The result is a catchy and modernised version of a sound that harkens back to a time where Post-Punk bands decided to move into electronica waters.

Rain To Rust is the brainchild of former Dead Man’s Dream and Rhythm 0 guitarist, whereas N.L.P. is the moniker of Istanbul-based Matt Loftin. Since playing with Housing Crash & Foton Kusagi, he’s decided to move into Post-Punk territory – so far he has released three singles.

Although both acts are focusing on their own releases for 2021, ‘Dead Violets Night’ may be the first in line of a series of collaborations…have a listen to the single below…
