I’ll remember the year 2020 for at least two reasons: the birth of my daughter Beatrice (she’ll join us right before Christmas!) and the good friends I made, especially during the lockdown.
This new album is a celebration of friendship in the music community, and I want to thank Roxi Drive, my long time friend Riccardo De Angelis, Bronster Bridge, Konstanza and Mayah Camara for joining me in this wonderful party.
Back 2 School is the last leg of a journey that began with the instrumental EP “Scenes”, and after the appreciation of the song “Tra le Fiamme e le Stelle” in my second album “Allegria” I decided to give more importance to vocal compositions.
The search for a warmer, “realistic” sound brought me to a multi-genre album, where you’ll find classic synthwave, r&b, pop-rock and even vaporwave.
As a kid I remember getting a little melancholic but in a strange way also happy when the time to go back to school approached in September; that indefinable feeling pervades the whole album, and you will find yourself bouncing from the classroom to house parties, to psychedelic trips, to school balls, or lost in the echoes of summer memories.

Being of a 'certain age', I remember being a kid in the 80s and a teen in the 90s. The Midnight's last two albums transport me back to those times effortlessly. It's no rose-tinted view back either - the final few tracks have a certain melancholy nature that reminds that there's no going back mattmattinson
Spaceship Android takes a trip to the beach. "Somewhere Along the Coast" is fun outrun in the sun with a disco beat that drifts in and out. "The Signal" begins with a lo-fi sound then cuts to normal with a spacey, astral sound. "Cruise" is another fun track that switches bakc and forth between funk and outrun with some nice guitar work. "Saw Her Yesterday" is my favorite, though, a slice of teen dreams with a bittersweet edge. Unrequited love? A past romance? The music's tone only tells so much. kmxexii
