Biography:

"Ladies and Gentlemen, we are The Latenight Callers...and we're much obliged..."

The Latenight Callers assembled themselves in a seedy basement in Lawrence, KS, around a card table strewn with liquor bottles, cigarettes, and shared tales of strange and debaucherous encounters....

The band soon moved their base of operations to a seedy basement in Kansas City, MO, turned up their amps, their synths, their bullhorns, and refined their dark, dancy tales for execution in front of the public at large...

The Latenight Callers were subsequently referred to as "Patsy Cline singing for Portishead", "Sexy Lounge Rock", "Noir-a-Go-Go" after their live shows swayed, swaggered, and charmed their audiences into their back-seats...

Kansas City knows the grit and allure of the Noir world through it's own history, and The Latenight Callers write a new chapter in that crime-novel that is the lust, the murder, the open road of The Cold, Cold Heart of America...

Press:

“If a band can be defined by its drink of choice, the Latenight Callers would be a 12-year scotch. "The aesthetic of what we do is timeless," baritone guitarist Krysztof Nemeth says. "We're like the house band at David Lynch's pool party." Technically, the Latenight Callers occupy the electro-noir genre: a sexy blend of synths, reverb-heavy guitars and dancing bass riffs behind lusty female vocals. The band's live show is a vaudevillian take on the classic lounge act, sparkling at the edges with glittery, vintage rock and roll.”
