Oakland trio Night School to release debut album ‘Blush’
Alexandra Morte and Baylie Arin formed Night School in the spring of 2013, shortly after becoming friends over shared orange peels at the park. The two musicians quickly discovered that their songwriting styles complemented one another’s well, and they set out to together capture some of the magic of 1960s pop groups such as the Crystals, the Shangri-Las, and the Shirelles — but while using far more distortion and reverb. Night School finished recording their first EP, 2014’s Heart Beat, a year into the band’s formation, and shortly afterwards absorbed Baylie’s friend Cheyenne Avant to round out the project on [...]

The lyrics, the songwriting, and the guitar tone – they all revolve around a simplified, overly sunny version of the West Coast – presumably inspired by lead singer Bethany Cosentino’s own life experiences. So it made sense when the band came out last night as a five piece to thicken the sound — a few details might have been lost, but that’s a small price for Best Coast to pay. Playing an extra small, nearly sold out (I heard there were some tickets available at the door) show [...]
