Night on My Side

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
Night on My Side, Gemma Hayes's confident debut, slides effortlessly from stirring electric passion to lilting acoustic tenderness, sometimes within the space of one song. Hayes grew up in Ireland, and she's an avowed My Bloody Valentine fan, but she's also a singer-songwriter at heart, penning introspective, emotional confessions. The U.S. version of Night on My Side resequences the original import into "Day" and "Night" halves and includes several EP tracks. By "Day," Hayes is a rocker: "Let a Good Thing Go" and "Work to a Calm" build on dense, crashing power chords; "Back of My Hand" uses a New Order–like guitar line; and "Lucky Girl" begins with a quiet drone that ...

Night on My Side, Gemma Hayes's confident debut, slides effortlessly from stirring electric passion to lilting acoustic tenderness, sometimes within the space of one song. Hayes grew up in Ireland, and she's an avowed My Bloody Valentine fan, but she's also a singer-songwriter at heart, penning introspective, emotional confessions. The U.S. version of Night on My Side resequences the original import into "Day" and "Night" halves and includes several EP tracks. By "Day," Hayes is a rocker: "Let a Good Thing Go" and "Work to a Calm" build on dense, crashing power chords; "Back of My Hand" uses a New Order–like guitar line; and "Lucky Girl" begins with a quiet drone that gradually crescendos into a wall of sound. By "Night," however, Hayes is a chilled-out folkie relying on acoustic guitars and quiet keyboards. Credit Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev) and David Odlum (The Frames), who helped Hayes produce the album, with keeping the schizophrenic effect to a minimum by weaving subtle layers of effects throughout. The softly pulsing "I Wanna Stay" and the sparse ruminations of "My God" call to mind Beth Orton, and the soulful "Ran for Miles" and beautiful "4:35 A.M." show that Hayes is truly a night owl. Night supersedes Day, barely, but Gemma Hayes is alluring around the clock.
All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
The stateside version of Gemma Hayes' critically hailed debut Night On My Side finds a young artist with impeccable taste. Like Beth Orton, there's a purity behind Hayes' lyrics and a believable beauty behind the music. Produced by Dave Fridmann Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips and Hayes' boyfriend, ex-Frames guitarist David Odlum, Night On My Side finds the Irish songbird working with elements of her favorite band, My Bloody Valentine, while crafting a real, passionate rock sound of her own. She plays guitar, but she refuses to be categorized as the next Jewel, and Night On My Side's soft-hued confidence is certain of that. From the blistering haze of "Lucky Haze" to the kaleidoscopic guitar textures of "I Let A Good Thing Go," the shift in songs initially found on the UK album gives new life to Night On My Side. "4:35 a.m." and "Work To A Calm," which were only previously available on European import EPs, are equally loaded with lush space rock fibers while "Evening Sun" also unavailable on the import version closes in on Hayes' day and night theme. Night On My Side offers a peace of mind, a soothing feeling that's prominent in Orton's work as well as in Lisa Germano's and Hope Sandoval's material; however, a lingering darkness isn't there. There's an innocence that's like slow dancing at twilight that sets Night On My Side apart from all the rest.
Entertainment Weekly - Jason Adams
Alternately rocking and mellow... Night on My Side echoes [PJ Harvey and Liz Phair] and adds guitar flourishes that recall, unexpectedly enough, My Bloody Valentine.

    Talented New Artist

    I picked up the UK version of "Night on my Side" while in England 2 years ago, and was blown away! I've been excitedly waiting for her to get some recognition state-side, and I'm sure she will soon! This album has a dreamy, yet grainy quality that drills its way into your mind and heart. Her lyrics are open and honest, which perfectly match her sweet voice.

    Day an Night...Both are beautiful.

    "Night On My Side" is sequenced so that the first of the half is rock music (suited for the day) and the second half is very chill and folkie (suited for night). Anyway, the album is amazing with gorgeous lyrics (Writte by Ms. Hayes herself) and beautiful guitars (also by Ms. Hayes). Pick up this album, you won't be disappointed!
