Konrad – “After Midnight” (feat. Nicky Dylan)


The hooky “After Midnight” is a contagious rock success from Konrad, also featuring Nicky Dylan. Taking inspiration from the punchy sounds of The Stokes and Phoenix, “After Midnight” compels with a series of catching shifts. “Are you ready for… do you wanna try?” the climactic vocals let out in the exciting bridge. “Some pay for more, some pay the price,” they continue in the very Strokes-esque chorus.

“After Midnight” succeeds with a comforting, familiar brand of indie rock with early ’00s appeal, exuding a melodically contagious spirit in every part of its song structure. Even if you’re unsure where to venture after midnight, this track will steer you on the right path with a confident smile.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
