Album Review: The Night Cafe - '0151'
The Night Cafe have released their long awaited debut album which does not disappoint, ‘0151’ is a album full of great indie songs which promise to propel them to being one of Britains biggest bands.
Having been releasing singles & EP’s since 2015 The Night Cafe have curated them into a fantastic album which really does close a great chapter for the band who will now look to move onto the next level. Having established that they can produce great singles it’s also so important that when brought together these singles bloom beautifully as an album.
The album begins with a really clever instrumental added with distorted voices which flows wonderfully into ‘Finder Keepers’ which has a chilled fluent melody. ‘Felicity’ follows with a more heavier guitar sound & a tremendous chorus which is the first of many great indie floor fillers in this album. The Highlight of the album is definitely ’Turn’, a magnificent single which fuses indie melodies with a shoegaze style, the lead vocals are perfectly executed & the solo takes it out of the stratosphere.
Other highlights of the album include ‘Mixed signals’ & ‘Endless Lovers’ both are singles which solidify this album as a stunning debut by the lads from Liverpool. The ‘0151’ songs were made for the big arenas & with consistent releases like this The Night Cafe won’t be far away from that.
