I’ve had a copy of Rush Midnight’s sexy debut for about a month now, but have been waiting patiently for the label to announce its release before telling you guys all about it.
Being the fan of synthy love doctor, Twin Shadow, that I am, I was eager to hear what Rush Midnight’s music was going to sound like – and, sex appeal aside, it’s actually nothing like I had envisioned. I can’t quite place Russ’s singing voice on the comparison scale of sexy male crooners out there, but I can tell you that his music reminds me of what PM Dawn might sound like wearing a leather jacket and carousing NYC’s hottest hotspots at 2am on a brisk Friday night.
+1 features elements of soul, reggae, synth, pop and R&B spread over 5 short tracks that has had me hitting repeat every time I listen, without fail – no lie!
Perfect for just about every mood and definitely up there with the Top 5 EPs I’ve heard all year. Another dose of fire from a label whose flame never ever burns out.
Check out the video for +1′s lead single, The Night Was Young Enough, below.
*Rush Midnight’s debut EP, +1, is out 30 October via Cascine.
