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.
MDNGHT continue to catch the eyes, ears and affections of major media, with The Guardian exclusively streaming their forthcoming EP, Into The Night, in their highly-respected New Music feature.
The Guardian recognise quality and potential when they see it, too, and enthuse about the “three amazing songs” on MDNGHT‘s debut EP:
Manchester-based quartet MDNGHT (they mean Midnight) make the kind of disco-tinged house that pretty much every major label must be quite keen to snap up right about now.
Their first release, I Will Lead You On, emerged earlier this year… Thankfully that song’s brilliance isn’t a one off, with the gorgeous swell of the title track utilising the band’s penchant for dangerously catchy choruses.
This is just the first example of the breathless (inter)national recognition MDNGHT‘s glossy, stylish pop should be garnering in the near future…
The Into The Night EP is out on 21st October 2013 and can be pre-ordered on iTunes as of 4th August.

MDNGHT are turning more heads with a series of remixes from Manchester’s hottest young producers.
Following The Guardian exclusively streaming their new EP Into The Night online, these mixes emphasise how MDNGHT’s live house music hybrid has moved both dancefloors and hearts.
MDNA polishes the song to a bright summer house sheen, Kardanski brings huge, snappy, bassy depth and Red Sky Noise spin the tune on its head with a clattering drum & bass rework.
All the mixes – accompanied by the original edit of the song – demonstrate MDNGHT’s strength: they have spliced the heavy sound of the clubs with the lightness of the most soulful R&B – and they remain UK’s most exciting R&B prospect.
