BRIGHT FUTURE is a new project by lo-fi electronic artist Frank Midnite from Brooklyn, NY. He was previously a member of Nursery and Poison Diamonds and has also released solo work under his own name. The EP I want to introduce to you here, THIS IS OUR TIME, is actually a five song outtake of his solo album Blue//Black.
As you may have observed when clicking the play button to the track above, Frank Midnites tunes are italo-disco infused electronic music with a hint of post-punk, citing Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees and New Order as influences. I hope that if you take a listen to “Never Change Casey” above this post you will instantly fall in love, just like I did.
If that doesn’t do it for you, you should take a listen at his cover of David Lynch’s “Good Day Today” or his remix of Blackbird Blackbird’s “Hawaii”. Or the other tracks for that matter. The entire THIS IS OUR TIME EP is now available for free download at BRIGHT FUTURE’s Soundcloud, so I don’t see a reason not to. Listen to the entire thing here:
