Artist Biography

The Midnight is a retro-synthwave duo comprised of American singer Tyler Lyle and Danish producer Tim McEwan. The duo met in Hollywood in 2012 at a writing workshop and connected over their mutual interest in 80s synth pop. The Midnight released their first EP in 2014 titled Days of Thunder which locked their vibe as synth-pop mixed with electric guitar riffs, sax solos, and vocals. Two years later they released their full-length debut Endless Summer which followed the nostalgia train started by their first release. However, it wasn’t until their 2017 EP Nocturnal that The Midnight would see mainstream success with the EP being a best-seller on Bandcamp and hitting the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart. These successes came at the same time the duo started playing live shows. Their second album Kids released in 2018 made it to number 12 on the Dance/Electronic Chart. Their next big release Monsters in 2020 also hit the charts, placing number three on the Dance/Electronic Albums Chart and making it on the Billboard 200. The Midnight’s most recent album, 2022’s Heroes, has pushed the duo to form a full band.
