There is a rare time of day just before sunrise when connections are more intense, gazes are more meaningful, and the possibility of magic is stronger. In these final moments of the evening, anything seems possible.
This ephemeral setting is the inspiration behind Afterglow, the third album from electronic outfit Pantyraid. The duo—South African producer MartyParty and Josh Mayer of The Glitch Mob—have been making music under the Pantyraid banner since 2008, and in the years since have become a force in the club and festival world on the power of their sophisticated dance music with alluring sex appeal.
“These are love songs for the club,” Marty says of the new album. “They’ll make you dance your ass off, and give you an emotional charge.”
