The Midnight is more than just a retro-futurist duo channelling the spirit of the long-gone 80's. It's the meeting of two musical worlds in the form of Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle that makes this act so exciting to follow. Tyler is from Georgia, USA, and Tim is a Danish-born producer and former resident of Los Angeles. One has inherited the poetic sensitivity and the more melancholic spirit of the American South, while the other comes from the neon-aesthetic-worshipping European North. However, both agree those difference enrich their music and create something they'd like to believe is unique and interesting to a modern crowd.

A Common Love for The Past
Lyle was born in Carrollton, a mid-sized city in Georgia, not far from some of the most conservative places in the US but really far away from socially-driven Denmark. Lyle's hometown boasts an impressive number of churches per capita and the governing body there hasn't been shy of banning musical and theatrical productions on the grounds of being too risqué. McEwan, on the other hand, is half-Danish, half-Scottish and has earned his wings in the production world, composing and supervising work for artists ranging from The Wanted to Sean "Diddy" Combs and beyond. It was the common love of '80s icon David Hasselhoff that saw those two opposites attract. Since their meeting, they've had the chance to express their love for the '80s, and in the process, they have shared the stage with other like-minded artists, such as FM-84.
The Midnight Bringing The 80's to Life
For some, The Midnight tickets are a rare find, as the band is yet to set their sights on long-term tours. Even though their popularity is rising, their personal interaction with their fans hasn't changed. An example is McEwan's desire to try and answer every social media request he receives, being either a tweet or a personal message. As a description of their music, the group likes to refer to the Japanese term: "Mono no aware". The meaning of the phrase is hard to translate; however, it broadly refers to the moment of realisation of the ephemeral qualities of objects, which can be better encapsulated in the music of The Midnight.
