“The song reflects on the idea that individuals can make the world at large a better place by improving their own small corner of it.” says guitarist/vocalist Dave Patterson, while drummer Emilor Jayne adds “We all need a little more light these days, in a glass half full way.”
Vancouver power trio Night Court was born during the great lockdown 2020 with lifelong friends Jiffy and Dave emailing each other song ideas. Using Jiffy’s old Tascam 4-track and stolen recording software, they guerilla recorded what would become Night Court’s earworm-riddled debut duology – Nervous Birds! One and Too. The addition of Emilor on drums perfected the band, and conditions were now optimal for Night Court to release itself upon the world of rock. Drawing from a wide pool of influences – “kind of indie rock-ish at times, catchy yet dripping, with feedback in all the right places.” (Ty Stranglehold, Razorcake) – the band’s only concern is to play delightfully sick melodies through stupid ripping guitars, disgusting fuzzed-out bass, and bombastic beats on borrowed and broken drums. Night Court demands attention, but long attention spans are not required.
