Made up with the talents of Paul (vocals/guitar), Will (Lead guitar/backing vocals), Lewis (Bass/backing vocals) and Garth (Drums) we caught up with NIGHLIFE before the release of their new album "Salt and Acid" to talk about the album itself and so much more!
Firstly, for those that do not know you yet, could you describe who you are and what your sound is?
I'd say "Punk Rock Premium", which sounds a little more conceited than I want it to! We've got a bit punk undertone which has been prevalent in all of our previous releases, but this throws in some grunge, garage rock, pop and some techy parts for good measure.
How does this album differ to your previous works?
It's an expansion, both in size and in style. It's more difficult to stay in your lane with a specific style when it comes to an album, so we decided why not have fun with that and push knowingly in every direction? I think if you're making a conscious effort to stray from what people expect you to do and embrace that you're not writing every song with the same mindset you can create something that's varied but also organic.
Last week you released a lyric video for your newly released song "Out of Your Mind", how have you found the response towards it so far?
We've heard good things (thankfully!). It's our lead single and the first taste people get from the album so I'm glad that it's been received well and we're getting good feedback.
In regard to that song, was there any influence that may have contributed to it?
The song itself is focused on the dime-a-dozen, cookie cutter alternative bands who're only in it for the money, writing banal and uncreative music to ride on the next bandwagon out of town. It's important to stay true to yourself and your craft and so there's definitely a positive undertone under all that cynicism 😉
