Midnight Snack – Immediately following graduation from college in Boston, the five members of art-pop band Midnight Snack hit the road in 2014 for an autumn of touring. With them, they took the additional goal of finding a place to call home given their new freedom, and by the spring of 2015 the group had moved to Asheville, NC. They’ve since settled into a shared house, constructed a studio, and most recently have completed work on their newest album.
Child’s Eyes is the third full-length album from the project started by brothers Jack Victor (vocals, drums) and Mike Henry Johnson (guitar/synth) before their enrollment in college. Through the addition of classmates Peter Brownlee (bass) and Zack Kardon (guitar) – as well as old friend, Katie Richter (vocals, trumpet) – Midnight Snack have developed a varied and eclectic sound, this latest offering the most personal and introspective of their lengthy discography.
Matt Curreri & The Exfriends – “A clever and unkempt songwriter whose catchy rock-and-roll chanteys capture the warm joys and cold sweats of one’s twenties.” – The New Yorker
“An insidiously clever artist…melodies as succinct and captivating as songs from The Beatles.” – C-Ville Weekly
