UK rising stars The Night Café, who recently joined hometown heroes The Wombats on their nationwide UK arena tour, have released their long-awaited debut album ‘0151’.
‘0151’ has been a long time in the making for the Liverpool four-piece, and comes in the wake of two sonically vast, highly acclaimed EP’s – 2017’s ‘Get Away From The Feeling’ and 2018’s ‘Bunkbed’, which amassed over 30 million streams.
The album is without a doubt the perfect encapsulation of The Night Café’s development as a band, embracing the nuances that drew fans to them in the first place, whilst also bringing deeper, darker elements into play. It’s an accomplished, forward thinking debut that will no doubt come to define the alternative landscape in 2019.
To celebrate the album’s release, the band have also shared a new video for ‘Mixed Signals’, a track which defined their glorious ascent over the last few years. Watch the clip here.
The Night Café also recently announced a huge UK headline tour for September/October 2019. The run of dates will feature the band’s biggest hometown show to date at Olympia Liverpool, and a massive show at London’s Electric Ballroom.
The band formed in their native Liverpool as an “excuse not to do the homework”. School friends Sean, Josh, Arran and Carl bonded over a mutual admiration of Bombay Bicycle Club, Kings of Leon, Fleetwood Mac and Title Fight and would jam together in music class. The band then started working on their own material and though they all pull from different scenes – Arran is a techno fan – they found a middle ground in the song’s melodies and structures. “It was more about chord progressions than actual genres of music,” Sean says.
