Discovery: Midlight

Midlight are a British indie rock band who have caught my attention through their new track Emergency Song.

By Graeme Smith

The ’emergency’ in the title of the track is, as you might have guessed, the pandemic through which we are all currently living. The song explores the halting of society from the imagined perspective of someone who is in power and is only motivated by selfishness. It feels little bit like an admonishment and hopefully give anyone listening pause for thought.

The echoing electric guitar, subtle drums and bass and drawling vocals of Midlight very much reminded me of early Coldplay, before they went overly bombastic. If you were a fan of indie rock from the early ’00s you’ll love their music.
