Boston up and comers The Night Game made a resounding splash when they made their debut with an infectious song named The Outfield. The band has since toured with John Mayer and are currently on a headlining North American tour, with five new California dates added for September. They’ve also shared their debut lyric video for The Outfield, giving us the prime opportunity to let them steal our hearts with their retro hued, 80s inspired, and nostalgia laden pop rock. The Outfield’s music video was directed by none other than Dev Hynes, or Blood Orange. The Night Game’s front man, Martin Johnson, explains that he wanted to portray the lyrical intent of the song and the idea of swimming upstream. They filmed on a gruesomely rainy day to capture fighting against a sea of umbrellas, ultimately capturing the heart of the song. The Outfield is out on iTunes, here.
