No one quite writes a sugary pop lament like Kids At Midnight, and if there could be a perfect ode to late night drama with a flickering glint of regret it would be this. The Melbourne Artist/Producers new single ‘Can I Come Home’ is an anthem for all troubled love, tortured souls and those in the throws of realising they might have found the love of their life… An epic nod to overblown 80s anthems complete with a howling guitar solo and a glam stomp invented for hot summer nights and misbehaving.
Thick with shimmering synths, epic layered choruses and Kids At Midnights trademark at once graceful and power ballad worthy vocals, ‘Can I Come Home’ is a brash and beautiful celebration of drama and regret and an electro-glam guide for all those who dream of finding the rom com worthy love they thought never deserved or those who’ve found it.
“This needs to be in a movie asaaaaaap. I’ve imagined most of the scenes already!”
Triple J, Declan Byrne (‘Boys Like You’, 2019)
“Such a Donna Lewis vibe, super 90’s and super romantic. I actually feel like I’m in Strictly Ballroom – Fran dancing on the rooftop with Scott! Best film ever btw.”
Triple J, Bridget Hustwaite (‘Birds’, 2017)
‘This song is like a fluffy cloud…with lots of tears in it.”
Triple J, Richard Kingsmill (‘Survival’, 2015)
“Her voice is no less than stunningly gorgeous as the reverb hits and she sings of the pain associated with not being able to turn off her emotions from a past life and a past love. It’s a tale we’re all familiar with, although it may never have been spoken so well until now.”
Impose Magazine (‘Turn It Off’, 2016)
“Listening to this with four surrounding walls isn’t fair. Someone ship over that wardrobe closet from Narnia because I need a magical portal to get me to Kids At Midnight. ‘Silence’ isn’t about not having something to say, it’s about being in awe and singer Jane Elizabeth Hanley leaves me speechless.”
