Midnight Garden has impressed previously with “Down” and “Something Blue“, both fine tracks with a synth-tinged grasp of folk and classic-rock. Their recent offering, as they work on the follow-up to last year’s Ruined, is a cover of Psychic TV’s “White Nights”. “We’ve always been fans of Psychic TV and Throbbing Gristle so we thought it’d be cool to share something while we’re writing and recording the follow up to Ruined,” member Nick Donlin explains. “Psychic TV has been in heavy rotation while working on this one, so it felt natural to share some of our inspirations. ‘White Nights’ is a really great little song, and has so much room for interpretation. I think we’ve shied away from covers in the past, mainly because it’s hard to find those songs that you can put a fresh spin on.”
The track is a dreamy, hazy success that reminds of Midnight Garden’s appeal. I’m definitely looking forward to their forthcoming release this year.
