NYCTOPHILIA: nyc-to-phil-i-a noun. A love or preference for the night or darkness.
After making waves as the front-woman for the bands Judas Priestess and Swear On Your Life, Maryland-born, New York-based rock singer Militia Vox debuted as a solo act in 2013, and quickly became known as the “Rock Goddess” of the Afropunk movement. The singer has since performed with legends like Twisted Sister, Living Colour, Taylor Dayne, Sandra Bernhard, Nancy Sinatra, Cyndi Lauper and Paul Shaffer. Vox describes her latest single, “Nyctophilia,” as “sinfully heavy with a breath of trip hop,” a dark and brooding track that electrifies the night.
“Nyctophilia was spawned by being an insomniac,” Vox explains. “I go on a lot of late night walks alone to burn off energy. I have a steamy love affair with the night. I come alive.”
