The Midnight - Silent Studios

In this episode, I am lucky enough to be chatting with one of my all-time favourite bands, The Midnight. The band is made up of Songwriter, Tyler Lyle, and Producer, Tim McEwan, and this duo was born when the two met during a co-writing workshop in California. Over the last few years, The Midnight has been gaining great momentum, taking their unique style of nostalgic driven "Synthwave" on a global tour. I found Tyler and Tim in their hotel room on their way through Sydney.

Sydney band, Sunscreen, is made up of friends Sarah, Alex and Hugo. With the later addition of their talented bass player, Jett, the Sunscreen we hear today was born.
