THE MIDNIGHT – Monsters (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Synthwave duo THE MIDNIGHT are favorites of this blog team, mixing ’80s inspired sounds with poppy AORish melodies. These guys are supremely talented at building entire worlds on a bedrock of universal themes and eminently catchy hooks. The first time this was wholly realized was the 2018 album ‘Kids’, which seemed to conjure memories of childhood innocence amid the dissolution of the American Dream in the 1980s.
On new album ‘Monsters‘ — released nearly six years to the day from their debut LP ‘Days of Thunder’ — the duo of Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle study the fiery extremes of adolescence through a lens of wistfulness for the early 90s. The result is an extraordinary body of songs that form a true, full-album experience. With that in mind, ‘Monsters’ is best heard as a whole.
