‘Monsters’ is the new album from US-based duo
The Midnight.

Having gone from online cult fascination to selling
out London’s Roundhouse in 2019 the album finds
the duo (lyricist, guitarist Tyler Lyle and
instrumentalist and producer Tim McEwan)
creating a sweeping sound that fuses Americana
archetypes with an evocative electronic palette
referencing synth-driven film scores, deep house,
pop, and rock.

‘Monsters’ (released via Counter Records, home to
Maribou State, Odesza, Chrome Sparks) sees a
continuation of The Midnight’s immersive worldbuilding
that has attracted a rabid fanbase.

From the album artwork to the song titles, the
record excavates teenage emotions through
nostalgic touchstones — the early internet, VHS
tapes, Playstations, movie posters — to recreate
the thrilling and crushing experiences of those
tumultuous years.
