Air Fàir an Là
Air Fàir an Là, is the second album by Niteworks (NW) and translates from Gaelic to ‘at dawn of day’. This reflects the point of the bands musical journey; the beginning of something new, different and unknown, with yet more potential to be seized and explored.
NW vision was to produce a record that blurs the lines between traditional music and contemporary electronica, by bringing together Gaelic/Scottish folk song, tunes and melodies, with electronic sounds.
The album features many collaborations with artists including Julie Fowlis, Iain Morrison, Kinnaris Quintet and SIAN, with techno producer Alex Menzies (Alex Smoke) overseeing production.
