Nottingham-formed psychedelic art-pop quintet Midnight Rodeo broke out in 2022 with 3 singles on Brighton's Fat Cat Records, accompanied by a relentless touring schedule around the UK, with trips to Europe, two sold-out hometown shows and prodigious slots at festivals such as The Great Escape, Dot to Dot & Kendal Calling.
Their sound is unique in its combination of a powerful groove laden rhythm section, alongside jangly guitars, theremin-esque synths, booming organs all held together with the ethereal, honeyed vocals of frontwoman Maddy Chamberlain. Intoxicating latin-esque grooves are juxtaposed with powerful psych-pop garage floor-fillers, hypnotic and chaotic in equal measure.
2023 has seen them tour with Deja Vega, alongside multiple headline dates, as well as first forays into the UK festival circuit. Now recording their debut album in September, their next 7" Thank You for Your Time (Fat Cat Records) will be supported with a 17 date UK & European tour this winter.
"A multi-faceted piece of woozy surf pop, the Morricone guitars slice through those heavenly vocals, while the heavyweight percussion surges to its grand finale." - Clash
