Midnight Kids rally around a youthful sentiment crafted by dreamers, believers and late night rebels. In a world that prides itself on being more connected than ever, the same cannot be said about its people who tuck their fears, doubts and insecurities under the covers. Midnight Kids are rewriting the script, encouraging people to be comfortable with their story.
Midnight Kids‘ story began a bit over a year ago when Kyle Girard and Dylan Lee first met and instantly connected on a vision and sound they were both striving toward. Since then, they’ve been able put their distinct, 80s-inspired spin on official remixes for The Chainsmokers, Gryffin, ARIZONA and more.
“Serious” ft. Matthew Koma is the follow up to the duo’s first official release “Find Our Way” ft. klei, which has amassed over 6 million streams worldwide.
“’Serious’ has been a year and a half in the making and we’re so glad to finally release it,” said Midnight Kids. “After remixing Matthew Koma’s song ‘Hard To Love’ back in 2017, we really hit it off with him and he wanted to work on a song with us which we were stoked about. We all recognise how special the song is, and to have it finally see the light of day is the most rewarding feeling.”
Matthew Koma adds: “The Midnight Kids have a way of evoking nostalgia and when I heard this track I wanted to write something that could be on a soundtrack for a John Hughes movie. The words are about that dance you do with someone when you’re both flirting with the idea of commitment and trying to figure out how safe or unsafe it is to proceed without caution. Inevitably having to throw all fear away and dive completely in.”
“We are all Midnight Kids. Let’s tell our story together.”
