Formed in Washington, Night Beats is a psychedelic rock band. They began in 2009 and have released five incredible albums since.
The band released their latest album, Outlaw R&B, earlier this month. Texas-born musician and Night Beats mastermind Danny Lee Blackwell moved to LA last year just before the world went into lockdown, and so their latest album is laced with inspiration from what happened during 2020.
