Following the release of darkly catchy singles ‘Dressed Up’ and ‘Jewels’, Liverpool-based band N¥TCLUB – Adam James, Peter Gebbie, Martin ‘Teens’ Gordon and Nick Iatridis-Jones – reveal their brand new uplifting synth-pop number, titled ‘Call Your Friends’.
Hello guys, how are you today?
Hello FM, very well thank you. Some might say exultant. (I googled that word).
What inspired you to make music together?
We’re all big dreamers with big ambitions and a combined love for live music.
Tell us everything we should know about ‘Call Your Friends’…
‘Call Your Friends’ is a song about realising what’s truly important to you, be it popularity and verification from people or things that don’t truly matter, or sticking with the people who are going to be there for you no matter what. I wanted to write a song that conveyed my feelings growing up towards ‘trying to fit in’ or be ‘part of the in crowd’. That kind of stuff wasn’t important to me, and the song is saying to someone you care about, go ahead and sit at their table, but when you realise there’s no value to it, I’ll still be here for you as I hope you would for me. Hopefully our fans connect to that in the sense that we aren’t trying to be the ‘coolest new band out there,’ we’re just going to write songs that truly mean something to us and whoever resonates with our music.‘Dressed Up’, ‘Jewels’ and now ‘Call Your Friends’, what’s next?…
We’re really excited about putting a LOT of new music out in 2017. 2016 has been about solidifying the band, and working on our live show and getting it closer to our ultimate vision. Now we feel that one step closer, we are ready to head into next year full force. It really is all about the live show for us.
Tell us about your next show and why we should be there…
Our next show is in our hometown of Liverpool, at a new venue called EBGB’s on Friday December 9! It is the second of a series of nights that we are putting on ourselves, aptly named ‘CLUBN¥T’. We wanted to create our own little world within a gig venue, and invite some new bands that we really dig to come and join us.
Tickets are only £3 from Dice.
