Alex Vans'”Chase the Night,” sounds as big as your Friday night plans. Vans achieved a huge, ambient sound by recording drums, piano, guitar and horns in an old mill in the outskirts of Philadelphia, and then worked with producer/engineer Abe Seiferth to record analog synths, electric guitar, electric bass and vocals.

The resulting song, the first single off Vans’ DJ Booth (out Jan. 8), showcases a duality between dancehall bombast and melancholy lyrics; a multi-layered tune about chasing after love, fun, alcohol, and the disappointing morning after. A vinyl 7″ of “Chase the Night” will be released on Oct. 22 with a bonus B side and digital download for both songs.
