Midnight Fusic is a four-piece alternative indie outfit based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fresh out of high school, the band first emerged with their debut single ‘Heart of May’ in September 2017. Drawing inspiration from bands like 1975, Muse, Bad Suns and even local indie heavyweights Hujan, the band seamlessly skirts the middle ground between fuzzy, jangly guitar lines with spit-polished indie anthems and rhythms roiling a host of influences into a single distinct sound.
As a start to the new year and hot on the heels of their successful debut track Heart of May, alternative indie act Midnight Fusic are ready to reveal their second single Lovesick to the masses. The sultry and polished grooves of the much awaited dancy track is a prequel to their first release, Heart of May, back in September 2017 which charted number 1 on the Malaysian Hitz.FM Met 10 Chart. Keeping with the band’s style of writing from life’s ordeals, Adrian Danial, the band’s lead guitarist, penned the song based on vocalist and frontman Raja Arif Aizudin’s experience of being stuck in a toxic relationship and finding it hard to let go.
“Instead of setting the story of love lost to a slow, sad melody, we decided to put the lyrics into something funky and upbeat thus, bringing life into the song and making it an earworm of a tune,” said Adrian.
The band is also hard at work on their debut EP that’s in the pipeline for release sometime in April 2018.
“We hope to reach out to as many people as possible and become the voices of the now where we can talk about topics and experiences of the norm through our music that people can relate to. With our EP in tow, we hope we’ll get to put out an album in the coming years and for our music to evolve in the Malaysian music industry; eventually making it internationally as well,” said Arif.
Expect the official music video to be released on 26 January 2018, for now, listen to the track via their lyrical video and keep listening to us via our APP and asianpopradio.com to hear more from the boys across 2018.
