Rock ‘n’ Roll Safari Presents: Midnight Sister (US)
Imagine being teleported straight in to a Paul Thomas Andersson movie just by walking thru the doors of Lilla Baren, maybe some jazz playing to cover up the chatter of all the shady business men, you might even get your ass beat on your way there by some fancy Stureplan cop, (just like when The Dude goes to Malibu in The Big Lebowski), maybe drink loads of whiskey, get laid, get framed for murder, all that stuff is possible at the Rock’n’Roll Safari!
Los Angeles is a land of illusion—the line between sparkling glamour and empty artifice sometimes impossible to decipher. It’s this dichotomy that has influenced the music of mysterious duo Midnight Sister, leading them to create a debut that claws away with long, manicured nails at the cracks in the city’s plastic veneer.
As heard on their debut LP Saturn Over Sunset, it’s an appealing smoothie of sparkly pop, disco, 60s yé-yé, and hints of weirdo psychedelia that’s whipped up during the more accessible tracks, but something is a bit…off. Straight art-pop this is not.
