Midnight Moonshake announces new album Reflections; new single 'This Feeling'

Originally from Manchester, England and now residing in Far North Queensland, Australia Midnight Moonshake has taken everything in his stride and is now ready to release the probing EP Reflections.

‘The past couple of years have been challenging, emotionally and mentally. These life events inspired me to be creative and express my feeling through music, helping me face and overcome fears.’ - Midnight Moonshake

The 6 track EP covers the spectrum of the Midnight Moonshake experience, a wilderness of synthesised expression that conjures vivid atmospheres of love, loss, anxiety and self-determination. Acidic basslines jostle for primacy within alienating reverbs and Midnight Moonshake’s history is recounted stoically. Leading single This Feeling is a freeing and expansive song of love, the fluttering synths ascend on major tones, the sense of excitement is palpable.

‘3.8/5 - He’s got a very original sound and did a fantastic job making it feel singular by the time you get to the last song. Recommended.’ - Divide and Conquer

The solo project of Lewis Merriman, Midnight Moonshake is the result of growing up listening to 80’s alternative music, Lewis became interested and gained appreciation for electronic music, in particular Jean Michele Jarre. The obsession of getting lost in the music escalated further when discovering bands such as Pink Floyd, The Beatles and later Tame Impala. This lifelong obsession lead Lewis wanting to create his own unique style of music. His Ep Reflections further illustrating his desire to balance escapism with cathartic creativity.
