“Into The Night”, Thomas Dekker’s third studio album is an eleven track journey into mystery, magic, desire, and all things that live in the shadows. Returning to his roots of solely electronic based production, the record evokes the sounds and moods of a bygone era and universe, specifically 1980s synth pop and genre film scores. Drawing inspiration from the likes of John Carpenter, Depeche Mode, New Order, Goblin, Vangelis and Ryuichi Sakamoto, the album is a swirling collage of Dance, Electronica, Goth Rock, Synthwave, and Experimental.
With “Into The Night”, Dekker creates a universe that is musically expansive while lyrically intimate. On instrumentals like “Lightstorm”, “After the Smoke Clears” and “The Pink Cloud”, the listener is beckoned to wander the limits of their imagination, while tracks like “Boys in Eyeliner”, “Pale and Mine”, and “Shadowman” provide direct and personal confessions from singer to audience. Strongly based around a single mood and audio aesthetic, the record is a cohesive and immersive experience offering one dreamy revelation after another.
Thomas Dekker began composing electronic music when he was fifteen, playing with soundscapes that range from Ambient to Industrial and beyond. In 2008, he released the genre bending experimental album “Psyanotic” and in 2014, the Electro-Rock record “Equals Zero” under the moniker “Zero Times Zero”. In 2012, he co wrote and performed the tracks “Ultraviolet” and “Half of Me” for the Catherine Hardwicke helmed “Plush” soundtrack alongside legendary record producer Nick Launay and co-scored the underground hit “Laid to Rest” and its sequel under the pseudonym “DeadBox” in 2009 and 2011, respectively. He also co produced and performed on the soundtrack to his directorial debut feature “Jack Goes Home” in 2016.
