Combining the talents of Casey Lee Williams (vocals), Martin Gonzalez (guitars), Martín de Lima (piano/keyboards), and Augusto Bussio (drums), Ok Goodnight challenges modern prog metal by taking inspiration from a wide array of genres. Based out of Boston, MA, the band formed when they were all studying at Berklee College of Music.
In early 2019, the band released their first single titled “Rapture.” In October of the same year, they released their debut album, “Limbo,” with bassist Ron Bernhaut and backing vocalist Elizabeth Hull. On November 13th, 2020, the band released an EP, “Under the Veil,” which featured guest performances on bass from Peter de Reyna of Seven Spires and Jacob Umansky of Intervals.
Ok Goodnight is currently preparing for the release of their second full-length on June 2nd. “The Fox & The Bird” is a concept album about animals and myths telling the tale of a drought-stricken land and two friends’ perilous quest to bring back the rain. As the story unfolds, the music moves from acoustic softness to electric heaviness, all the while depicting a bustling wilderness with vibrant sound design.
The collaborative effort that went into crafting this album saw every member of the band play an important role in both songwriting and production, naturally pushing the quartet’s sound to the next level. Indeed, their new material keeps surprising the listener at every turn, taking you on an emotional journey full of Pop-infused melodies, Jazzy time changes, and crushing Metal riffs.
