Club Night is a local band making waves in Oakland right now, playing chaotic-but-exhilarating indie rock. Their sound is a bizarre blend of guitar riffs usually found in midwest emo and frontman Josh Bertram’s high-pitched psychedelic wail, all layered on top of some synth pads and frenetic drumming. They’re unapologetically high energy, but they never let their excitement get the best of them. Drummer Josiah Majetich does a great job of reigning in the band and keeping everything together, playing rhythms that are more reminiscent of Noah Lennox’s early work with Animal Collective than the standard indie fair. Their new track, which premiered last week on Fader continues this excitable trend with plenty of rhythmic variations, explosive breaks and yelped lyrics.
Club Night will be releasing their debut album What Life on April 5th via Tiny Engines. The album focuses on themes of community and everyday struggles. The band is visiting the new Bandcamp Record Store in their hometown of oakland, and will be playing a free, all-ages show on the date of the record release. Considering the buzz they’re getting from other news outlets, it’s safe to say that Club Night is on the verge of blowing up, and this release show is a well deserved victory lap for a band that has clearly put in work.
