Following strong radio play support from BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra – and previous formidable online support from Idolator, Popjustice and The Guardian – MDNGHT have another huge feather to squeeze into their cap in the form of an international video exclusive on TIME Magazine‘s website.
Time enthusiastically noted Breeze’s, “flecks of guitar, piano stabs and wall-of-sound background vocals gathering around Jordan Lewin’s breathy falsetto,” confirming that the USA is just as receptive to MDNGHT’s “drifty, tropical dance music.”
The video to their previous single, Into The Night, snagged a whopping 140,000 views in the first week – and after TIME’s huge boost, the Breeze video is now also available to watch online via VEVO.
Fantastic news – and yet another affirmation of their rapidly burgeoning reputation – as BBC Radio 1 have announced that they’ve picked MDNGHT to perform at one of the most sought-after events in the UK, Radio 1’s Big Weekend on Sunday 25th May.
It means they will be sharing the bill with huge stars like Katy Perry, Kasabian and Rita Ora amongst many others.
The band are part of a select few artists identified by the key tastemakers in the BBC Introducing team, marking them as one of the UK’s hottest prospects.
MDNGHT will be playing the BBC Introducing Stage alongside other highly-sought-after new acts, including Catfish and the Bottlemen, Royal Blood and XO.
There’s full information on the Big Weekend here – which takes place from the 23rd to the 25th May.
