Liverpool indie heroes The Night Café, have made a much-welcomed return with their new single ‘Isn’t’.

The new release marks the start of a new era and is the band's first new material in 18 months.

The band said hey are “so happy to be releasing some music after a hard couple of years” following the release of their debut album ‘0151’ back in 2019.

The new track holds the same chill, warm and summery vibe that their debut album was loved for and is an introspective look at a failed relationship.

Speaking about the track, lead singer Sean Martin said: “It captures the feeling of loss and betrayal in a relationship.

"Basically just a bad relationship where both people end up disliking each other but the feeling of love is still hard to lose.”

With characteristically muted instrumentals throughout, ‘Isn’t’ consists of emotional lyricism and is full of soft drum beats and delicate guitar sounds.

The way Martin describes the new track is captured instantly in the first verse. “Isn’t it funny/ You said you would’ve grown/ I thought you loved me/ Who says I should’ve known” showcases the emotional lyricism and feeling of heartbreak.

The message of loss, betrayal and heartbreak is further shown and solidified in the choruses. “No I can’t stand you now/ To go from love, it’s so absurd/ It pains me to still say that word/ But I love you still” expresses the loss and how the feeling of love is hard to lose.

The new single is the first taste of the brand new EP ‘For Better Days’, which arrives in late April, and is accompanied with a music video.

The Night Café have also announced a UK headline tour for February 2022 after rescheduling it a few times over the past couple of years.

The lyricism and production of ‘Isn’t’ follows the sound that made the band’s debut album such a magnetic record and is a pleasurable return to say the least.

It is evident that the time away has not changed the band and that they are still here to produce relatable music that connects to the ears of thousands. It feels good to have them back, especially in time for summer.
