about

We are tremendously honored to present the Silk Music debut of The Midnight, consisting of Danish-born (LA-based) producer Tim McEwan and NYC-based singer-songwriter Tyler Lyle. Electing to forge their own path in the ever-evolving landscape of modern music, the bicoastal duo have self-released the majority of their catalogue, up until now. Their music pays homage to the dreamy and uplifting, yet subversively melancholic 80s film and television scores of their youth.

The Midnight's triumphant single, "WeMoveForward," epitomizes the wistful spirit and irrepressible musicality of their oeuvre. The song establishes an exhilarating groove at its onset, soon followed by a gorgeous piano theme, one of the track's most heartfelt and enduring instrumental motifs. Tyler's opening verse captures the intoxicating presence of a sun-kissed beauty, culminating in the titular refrain, which is backed by anthemic chords and exceedingly lush pads. The euphoric groove immediately to follow and extended coda beckon us to celebrate and, ultimately, empathize with the songwriter's lovestruck condition.

Talamanca, the extraordinary composer behind last year's beloved "A Day At The Beach" EP, has emerged as an undeniable force in trance & progressive, thanks to consistent global radio support. Drawing heavy inspiration from the Balearic sound of Chicane and fellow forefathers of the genre, Talamanca seemed to be the perfect fit to rework The Midnight's melodic, romantic, and summer-flavored opus. In the early going, a thrilling, uptempo groove is coupled with mesmerizing arp lines. The crescendo of sound and emotion paves the way for a breathtaking climax, in which Talamanca's lush, layered chords reinforce The Midnight's unforgettable chorus.
