SINGLE REVIEW: Following their hit first single with a glimmering indie-pop dance anthem, The Night Society push their sonic pallet even further with ‘Believe’.


“The Night Society have perfectly captured the angst and the nostalgia of falling in love for the first time”

Pounding drums and euphoric synths light up dance floors, whilst blitzing guitar solos make you feel electric. The Night Society have perfectly captured the angst and energy around sexual tension between two people, the nostalgia of falling in love for the first time, and forgetting the rest of the world exists other than in this moment right here. 

When an instantly recognisable drum machine teases us, we only have a moment to react before we are catapulted into the catchy, gritty hook over an energetic dance groove. In the story of these two people finally getting together, the band have cheekily started this sweaty, flirty dance before we even have had a chance to react. 

“A euphoric release of the tension”

Combining 80s influenced dance with modern indie pop (The 1975, Two Door Cinema Club, Bombay Bicycle Club), Believe dances between angsty and elevating feelings, as well as a euphoric release of the tension that is held in many young adults on the dance floor.

We can’t help but think of light up dance floors, powerful dancing, neon paint and good times when we listen to Believe, we found ourselves whisked away by the brilliant production and depth of this song; plenty of synth lines, atmospheric picked guitars and vocals that cut through the mix entirely. 

“It’s exactly what we need to get us up and dancing when the world is sitting down”

It feels like only a matter of time before The Night Society will be radio-regulars and club necessities, with their instant catchiness, angsty release and uplifting emotions: it’s exactly what we need to get us up and dancing when the world is sitting down.

Believe is to be released on 17th of July, but you can listen to their first single ‘Do You Feel at Home’ right now on all streaming sites.
