Liverpool indie-pop group The Night Cafe have served up a brand new video for their song ‘Think It Over’, which was featured on their For Better Days EP earlier this year.
“‘Think It Over’ was the first tune I wrote for the EP, really wanted to just have a happy song that was fun to play,” singer Sean Martin says in the song’s press release. “It captures the emotions people experience when they’re questioning whether their life if going in the right direction.”
“This video was really fun to make as well,” Martin continues. “Getting aggy with the fisheye out the window of the blue fizza risking it for the old guard. And you know we be crankin’ the saturation. Heavyboy affiliated. ‘For Better Days’ is what it says on the tin. This last year has been a tough one so we were making rammers to cheer us up to be hopeful for the better days to come.”
I barely understood half of those words, but that’s okay because I’m an ignorant American and also because this song is pretty awesome. Opening with some jazzy lo-fi piano, the track proper kicks into gear with a busy drum beat and a certain detached aloofness courtesy of Martin’s relaxed drawl. No matter how many nights he’s kept awake thinking about this person, Martin never gives the impression that he’s all that concerned about the outcome. For now, he’s just enjoying the ride. “It’s like I’m lost/I don’t need anyone”.
A solid indie rock machine since the middle of the 2010s, The Night Cafe only have a single long play to their name, 2019 effort 0151, but the small batch of material they’ve released is enough to give them a quirky edge in the alt-rock game. ‘Strange Clothes’ is a personal favourite cut from their discography. Top band, these guys are.
