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.
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 reflection 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.
These are not all of artist's releases, just the ones we have had a look at
