Moving through the complexities of prog rock and creating something awe-inspiring but still catchy can be a tall order, but not for Night Idea. The Richmond, VA-based quartet is preparing to release its latest LP, Riverless, and each new track has highlighted the band's ability to play with both complex rhythms and intricate melodies. And to say that their latest single, 'Gift Horse,' may be their strongest is quite the compliment.

Featuring a warped amalgamation of guitars, synths and crooning vocals, the track falls into a world that hovers between ELO, Boz Scaggs and Steely Dan. 'Gift Horse,' much like the rest of Riverless, is a rich and intricately crafted tune that will undoubtedly please with its unpredictability and cleverness.

Check out 'Gift Horse' below, as well as some of Night Idea's tour dates. You can also order Riverless here. The record is due out on Oct. 13 through Gigantic Noise and Citrus City.
