Nottingham’s newest psych exports Midnight Rodeo share tantalising second single ‘Shootout Sunday’, set for release May 31st via FatCat Records (Honeyblood, The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks).
Partnering with the renowned indie label for their first set of releases, the group draw influences from Allah-las, Juniore, La Luz and Pink Floyd, with ‘Shootout Sunday’ a swaggering homage to 60’s low-fi garage rock, set firmly in a slick west coast modality and incorporating a stream of glistening dream pop synth lines that innovate on the tried and tested psychedelic formula.
Speaking ahead of their upcoming release, the six-piece explained: “‘Shootout Sunday’ is about the journey and anticipation around goals in life, and the inevitable feeling of dissatisfaction when you reach your destination. It’s a westernised take on the disillusionment of arrival fallacy; a Bonnie & Clyde-esque tale of two lovers mourning the journey’s end”.
Earning significant praise throughout the tastemaker landscape (So Young, Clash Magazine, Under The Radar), Midnight Rodeo are set to hit the festival circuit over the summer months, with further release plans in the works as they aim to build on their promising early momentum.
Midnight Rodeo’s ‘Shootout Sunday’ is out May 31st via Fat Cat Records and will be available on all digital platforms.
