Morning Midnight is a juxtaposition that makes sense from the jump, the bedroom-pop duo are made up of singer-songwriter Jordan Scott, whose personal lyrics and soaring vocals captivate, and Jess Pascal, whose background in piano, production and synthesis both ground and illuminate the group’s sound.
About the album the band say “When the world stopped two years ago we set up a studio in our front room with the idea to work on new music, and what started out as a couple of voice notes on my phone eventually grew into something that’s both exciting and surreal to announce; our debut album. It’s been a labour of love and we couldn’t be prouder of it, there’s been a lot of self reflection over these past few years and these songs have really helped us work through it. We hope it gives you as much as it’s given us.”
Their debut EP ‘Swimming Lessons’ was an unfiltered work that drew you into a place of retrospective feeling, and has amassed 2 million streams on Spotify alone. Lead singles ‘You & I’ and ‘Ancoats Junction’ root the bands unique harmonies and vocal layering with a raw electronic sound, weaving melancholic stories with a distinct sense of hope. Now, the new and upcoming debut LP ‘Happy Hour’ is an ousting into the light. Elevating the textures and storytelling of ‘Swimming Lessons’, the duo’s new work is both fully realised and cinematic. Created entirely in the pair’s living room over lockdown, the album manifests the journey of soul searching that we’ve all been on and encapsulates the reflecion many people were forced to undertake over the past two years. The opening track ‘Blurry’ was featured as BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Track of the Week’, whilst ‘Easy’ has received airplay from BBC Radio 6.
Morning Midnight is the story of two individuals living on the outside who have brought themselves in. A duo whose music will make you feel every emotion like it was the first time, with hook-filled melodies that bring a familiar comfort weaving alongside a lyricism that creates a longing for introspection. Look out for their upcoming debut LP ‘Happy Hour’ out in October 2022 on Faction Records.
