Night School are streaming in full their amazing debut album, Blush, out June 17th on Graveface Records. Pre-order Blush now here.
Night School was formed through a friendship bond over sharing oranges at the park. Lexi Morte and Baylie Arin met in the spring of 2013 through mutual friends and very shortly after began working on music together. Alexandra had been working on some songs and was looking for a drummer; Baylie was the perfect match with similar musical interests and songs of her own that were a perfect fit.
They began working on songs in the vein of 60’s bands such as The Crystals, The Shirelles and The Shangri-las with heavy distortion and reverb on guitars. The two began to work on their debut EP Heart Beat and recorded it in the spring of 2014. After the recording of Heart Beat, Baylie’s friend Cheyenne Avant, who had been living in Los Angeles, moved back up to Oakland and completed the band playing bass.
Blush draws on influences such as 90’s era Weezer and the Beach Boys, which result in the trio creating fuzzy and melancholic tunes along with the sweet vocals of Lexi, it’s a nostalgic trip.
