THE NIGHT CAFÉ Unveil Video for ‘Please’

The Night Café explore the theme of an unrequited love from the comfort of their home in their newest self isolation video for Please.

The Night Cafe 2019

The Liverpool quartet is here to save the day and brighten our dull quarantine days with their latest single Please. Taken from their acclaimed debut album 0151 which was released last summer, the latest release is the fourth in a string of singles following Mixed Signals, Turn and Addicted.

Stuck chasing an unrequited love after a mental fall, the heartfelt track sits on an infectious guitar work and an easy listening atmospheric chorus while singer Sean Martin begs ‘Please my eyes but plague the heart / Please make this as easy as it can be / I know that I should’ve said it from the start but’. Love truly is what aids it all. The accompanying music video is simple, intimate and possibly the only current option – the band members distant, self isolating at home and safe.

Speaking about the new video for Please, frontman Sean Martin commented:

The idea to film the video on our webcams came from that we obviously can’t see each other at the moment, but mainly because wanted to have something to give/show people who are losing their minds having to isolate due to Covid-19 and it felt like a much more personal way to shoot a video. It kind of worked out perfectly to suit the song though, I always thought ‘Please’ would be fun to make a video for. I felt so invested in the idea from the moment I thought of it, I just dropped everything else and focused solely on the video. The boys sent me clips of them playing the song a few times and it just went from there. Really funny way to make a video though, makes you miss seeing each other more in these weird times. I’ve never made a video before though so this was a fun challenge for myself. Josh is usually the man for that, he made all our earlier vids plus a heavy merch ad which is still my favourite TNC vid to this day, even though it’s not for a song.
