Graveyard Club | The Night Is Mine
by LJ Kessels
You are in a cinema that reeks of popcorn and hairspray watching a coming of age movie featuring Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe or Emilio Estevez. The protagonist finally got his or her love interest, or had a grand revelation about life and the human condition. A freeze-frame or fade to black as the titles roles across the screen. The audience inside the cinema quickly catches it’s breath and tries to re-adjust to the house lights that have just being turned on.
Graveyard Club’s single ‘The Night is Mine‘ could have been the song playing during the end titles in this fictitious 80’s memory; with a sound reminiscent of Echo and the Bunnymen and The Cure.
The Night is Mine is the first single off of the band’s upcoming album ‘Nightingale’. The Minneapolis-based indie-synth band found it’s sound in the fall of 2013 while recording its EP ‘Sleepwalk’ inside of the basement of a 19th century mansion in St. Paul. Comprised of Matthew Schufman (vocals, keys), Michael Wojtalewicz (guitar), Cory Jacobs (drums) and Amanda Zimmerman (bass, backing vocals), this bands draws it’s influence from 50’s crooners, 80’s new wave and modern day dream-pop bands, spooky nostalgia like Ryan Gosling’s underrated band, Dead Man’s Bones.
