Midnight Rodeo – “Now You’re Gone”

Hotly tipped psyche rockers Midnight Rodeo are the new band making waves in Nottingham, already getting huge attention after signing to essential indie label FatCat Records and dropping debut single “Now You’re Gone”.

Their first trip into the studio conjures images of 70’s hedonism, as “Now You’re Gone” draws on woozy dream pop and projects shades of a lost spaghetti western soundtrack, just as you’d expect from a band with a name like that! The sensational six-piece includes singer Maddy Chamberlain, James McBride and William Crumpton sharing both guitar and backing vocal duties, with Sam Potts playing keys, bass curtesy of Harry Taylor and Ferg Moran on drums.

Midnight Rodeo will be showcasing their hot new single whilst impressing a home crowd when they play a headline show at The Chameleon next week. Plus, they play support for The Baggios in London before making an appearance at Splendour Festival.

Kae TempestThis Line Is A Curve

Award-winning poet and playwright Kae Tempest explores the emptiness and excitement of letting go on their latest LP; This Line Is A Curve. Teaming up with a wide cast of collaborators, including Grian Chatten, Lianne La Havas, Confucius MC, assia and Kevin Abstract – the new record focuses on the pressures that comes with striving for everything, and what happens when we turn our backs on those futile pursuits. Do we only exist through struggle, and is identity only in retaliation to what we are not?

Tempest tours extensively in support of This Line Is A Curve, hitting the round at the end of this month. See the complete listings for all Kae Tempest shows HERE.
