The first thing you're going to think of when you hear the new single from Night Court is Pavement. "Brighten the Corner" obviously will make you think of Pavement's 1997 album Brighten the Corners. Night Court also have a little bit of a 90's indie rock vibe on this latest song. There may be some Pavement similarities, but the title is going to be the strongest. This new song is much too upbeat to be anything that came out of the cynical 90's indie scene. If anything it's like The Polyphonic Spree goes 90's indie rock, and who doesn't want that?
Guitarist/vocalist Dave Patterson says of the new song:
"The song reflects on the idea that individuals can make the world at large a better place by improving their own small corner of it."
