Vancouver Indie Rock Musician Night Hymns captures lightning in a bottle on groove-heavy new single “Blue Bottle”, out now on streaming platforms. The song finds Night Hymns showcasing an uncanny ear for melody and a love for artists like The Beatles and Oasis.
“I am almost completely self-taught. I picked up the guitar only to play rock and roll. If rock music never existed, I probably would not be making music right now. Call me the latter-day slacker rocker if you like, but the very idea of taking guitar lessons seems odd to me.”
While many of us imagine what it might be like to be ‘free as a bird’, this track finds the artist lyrically imagining themselves as a ‘happy fly’. Sounding both familiar yet fresh, Night Hymns’ sound is best described as ’21st Century Rock n’ Roll Swagger’.
“I am trying to paint my impression of San Francisco with music and words. But the joke is that I am actually writing about living like a happy fly. I got the idea in a café called “Blue Bottle” on a trip to San Francisco. The name just tickled me because it reminded me of a fat fly, probably because the café was not located in the tidiest corner of the city.”
