In need of some clever, groovy tunes with a cool, hazy vibe that brings back that summer of Chillwave-feel? Look no further, the full-length debut-album from Rush Midnight have just what you need in store!  Get up or get down, go crazy on the dancefloor or let your mind work the grooves, any which way works fine with this one.

Russ Manning is to Rush Midnight what Clark Kent is to Superman. Sonically he’s somewhere in between Neon Indian and Twin Shadow, which also makes sense since he joined Twin Shadow on bass in 2010. Where Twin Shadow moves into more mellow arrangements, Rush Midnight sticks with the grooves and hooks which are quite infectious throughout the whole album. The chill vibe is always present, though.  This could be the perfect soundtrack to your love-affair, however casual or long-term.  Try it out tonight, you might just get lucky!

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Russ Manning joined Twin Shadow in early 2010. While on tour across Europe and Australia, Russ began to write songs in 2 star hotel rooms and mixing the songs in the van. By 2012 Russ had discovered a clear voice of New York in the evening; an alter ego exploration called Rush Midnight.

New York label Cascine released his debut EP +1 with production support from George Lewis Jr. With influences spanning from Minneapolis ’80s funk group Change, to The Police and Sade, Rush Midnight currently writes songs in the shadows of his bedroom with the hope of one day writing in the light of the outdoors.

Rush Midnight has toured with Miami Horror, Gold Fields, Savoir Adore, and played a sold out show with St. Lucia in Jan 2014. Rush Midnight’s debut full length self-titled album will be out on May 27, 2014 on Last Gang Records. The record was executively produced by Jesse F. Keeler (MSTRKRFT / Death From Above 1979).
