Discovery: Midnight Run

Originally from North Wales and Liverpool but now based in London, Midnight Run are a folk rock duo whose lively new track Winter Romance caught my ear.

With layers of acoustic guitar, driving percussion and vocals harmonies, Winter Romance is a track that will have you stomping your foot swaying while you sing along. At its heart, though, is a gentle story of cockle-warming love, brought to life through seasonal imagery.

Midnight Run are Jacob Elwy and Jonny Mac, two musicians who found each other through social media and formed during the first pandemic lockdown. By the third lockdown, they had started recording, in a room above The Prince of Wales pub in Putney.
