about

The Midnights’ recording process has been fittingly eclectic considering their raw and often unpredictable rocksteady reggae sound. It has seen them traverse a variety of recording environments from major studios to hastily converted garages only to eventuate in the band finding solace in a council flat with a rudimentary Pro Tools set up.

Recording on the go, The Midnights home studio included broom handles and cinderblocks as mic stands, ancient borrowed guitars, Trade Me organs with missing keys, a cheap novelty drum machine picked up from London’s Notting Hill street market and hastily pinned up posters of Peter Tosh and The Clash adorning the wall for inspiration.

Having now emerged victorious from such capricious conditions, The Midnights have completed their debut LP, Outside, and are set to officially introduce their charming and adventurous low-fi brand of roots-reggae to Aotearoa.
