“‘Hold Me After’ is the second single from our upcoming album ‘Blue Tomorrows’,” said Midnight Garden. “It was inspired by the idea of withdrawing into yourself, but regretting it once you’re in that special someone’s arms again.”
Continued: “On this song, and most of the others on the album, one of us will be kinda drawn vocally to the chorus or verse, and one of us will then just work on the other part, informed by the other. We like our songs to have a structure that allows us to put a surprise in there or take the listener in a different direction. This is where the middle part comes in on this song; Something to twist the mood.”
Midnight Garden is Nick Donlin and Zach Vouga, an electronic duo based in San Diego, CA. And they have a habit of making compelling songs that sing and prance like they’d designed. It clings with a jaunt of reality, while it fantasizes in dexterity and qualm relieving accuracy. A seemingly jumble of regrets and sadness, never wilts and, by the end, it gives you the positivity that you’d always thought you’d possessed.
What a ride. What an echo of truths.
