A gurgling of cosmic light, electrifyingly stunning out of his raygun, The Nightgame’s “UFO” is deceiving. And you never quite know what you’re about to experience. “I thought I saw a UFO / But I guess it was just a cloud,” creative mastermind Martin Johnson (of Boys Like Girls) sings, the disappointment hanging in the back of his throat.
“And I thought maybe the seed would grow / But it’s wilted and turning brown,” he continues. It’s the kind of soul-crushing performance that captures both the anxiety of the last 12 months and the general existential crisis we all must endure. Sooner or later, it comes for all of us.
