Liverpudlian group The Night Cafe formed naturally as they grew up in the same area but developed their love of music separately. Using music lessons at school to shape their sound and musical ability, the band started by learning on the go but have now grown into the title of one of the UK’s strongest indie newcomers. The four-piece diverted their sound away from their hometown’s heritage forged by The Beatles and The Coral, choosing to develop a new indie sound filled with bold guitar hooks, thundering basslines and glowing vocal melodies.
In 2017 they released their debut EP Get Away From The Feeling, which Indie Central stated “builds upon their catchy indie-pop formula by adding a few more raucous beats into the mix, creating something even more attention-grabbing than ever before.”
By opposing every other local bands’ method of gigging straight away with a setlist comprising of covers, The Night Cafe sheltered themselves away for a year until they had written enough original material to help them stand out against the mass competition. This worked considerably well as their first gig at Liverpool’s O2 Academy small stage found an audience full of people singing along to their music.
Since then, their tour diary is full of larger stages and ever larger crowds, including playing Liverpool Sound City and supporting The Wombats at Alexandra Palace. Through these grand experiences, the band have refined their live performances to be both energetic and emotive, creating a real spectacle.
