MIDNIGHT VEIN, THE: Till It Explodes: 7” EP

Sep 29, 2020

Adult contemporary alternative rock. The A-side is a mellow number that would sound at home on night time KCRW shows. “Run from the Light” reminds me of ’90s U.K. bands like Happy Mondays, Verve, et cetera, but with a repetitive beat that borders on hypnotic but never really goes all out. This is okay, but nothing really stands out, making me want to listen to it again down the line. –Matt Average (Swimming Faith, swimmingfaithrecords.com)
