The Night Café
About The Night Café
Following the rich history of Liverpudlian bands that came before them, indie pop four-piece the Night Café bring a fresh take on the Liverpool sound, as heard on their acclaimed debut, 2017's Get Away from the Feeling.
Formed by vocalist and guitarist Sean Martin, bassist Arran O'Connell-Whittle, guitarist Josh Higgins, and drummer Carl Dillon while still at high school, the quartet had bonded over their love of their local heroes, bands such as the Coral and the Beatles. Mixing chiming, jangly guitar lines with infectious pop melodies, the group released a handful of singles — including 2015's "Addicted" and 2016's "Together" — before issuing their debut EP, Get Away from the Feeling. Slots at T in the Park and tour dates with Sundara Karma spread their sound to a wider audience, and they returned with the EP Bunkbed in 2018. That same year, the band started recording what would become their debut album. Sessions with Robert Whiteley (Clinic, Hot Club de Paris) at his Whitewood Studio in Liverpool resulted in 2019's 0151. Released towards the end of the year, the album brought together the pop sensibilities of the Night Café's influences with swirling guitars and pensive songwriting.
