The Midnight Rambler is the work of singer/ songwriter and guitarist Mike Lemin. Combining aspects of acoustic electronica with a questioning line in love, loss, and spirituality. Likened to the musical equivalent of film noir over blues - the lyrics are dark stories recanted over hypnotic bass lines and beats.
TMR has appeared at The BT Digital Music Awards and at venues around the UK and Europe.?The debut album is in production and will be released in 2010.
BBC Radio "In-Session": ?"Loop sampling multi-instrumentalist builds hypnotic textures..haunting song vocals over a lo-fi beat... this is soulful electronica.. Like a cross between Imogen Heap and DJ Shadow.."
For fans of Jimmy Eat World, The Get Up Kids, Say Anything
Hailing from Windsor and formed in the summer of 2008, Girl Afraid started out from the simple desire to have a good time playing some tunes. Wanting to create their own brand of honest rock-pop that would fuse the fundamental elements of hardcore, they spent two years and several obligatory line-up changes honing their craft. Flash forward to the present and the Berkshire upstarts have self-released two singles, been hand-picked for a high profile ‘Alter The Press’ compilation, alongside the likes of Far, and have played numerous dates across the South of England, including BBC Introducing shows & many O2 Academy dates. Needless to say, the band take their craft quite seriously.
