I'm late but a) thanks for these! and b) is there any resource breaking down what each of the subgenres mean

All i really know is Gunship (love em) and I'm not super into instrumental synthwave I've tried. Gotta have singing and lyrics. I might give The Midnight a try.

If you like Gunship, Midnight and FM-84 will be right up your alley.

The Midnight slaps. Hearing the sax go off in Crystalline for the first time was a revelatory experience.

new midnight single. it's a slow jam, so definitely a different feel from most of their stuff.

Check out Kavinsky, too! "Nightcall" is a classic at this point.

Definitely different but... gotta say, it's getting me right in the brain space dedicated to happy feelings. I can also completely see it in some daffy 80s flick about the shy kid winning over the prom queen or some such silliness. This album looks to be a real standout - I'm absolutely loving every single track released so far.

^ totally agree. it didn't immediately strike me as a killer track, but after a few (dozen) more listens i am definitely vibing on it.

i can see them playing this in the middle of a live set as sort of a breather in between more pumped up jams and something to get the whole crowd singing HOLD HER HAAAAAAAAAAAND with some laser lights going. i can't loving wait for shows to be a thing again

I saw some chat about Kids earlier in the thread, and I just wanted to chime in in defense of it. Explorers is by far my favorite track by The Midnight, I love it SO much. Any album with that song on it can't be all bad.

Fear is the glue that holds society together. It's what makes people suppress their worst impulses. Fear is power.

And at the end of fear, oblivion.

It's a great EP mistakenly marketed as a full album.

Lost boy, explorers, America 2, Wave, and the Kids reprise are all stellar midnight songs. America 2 was especially good in concert. I don't think fans dislike Kids, it just would have left a better impression if there wasn't so much filler.

I didn't hate Kids, it just def felt like a B side album more than anything to me

Youth, Arcade Dreams, and Saturday Mornings are all not songs and just filler poo poo taking up around 8 minutes of the album's runtime.

Kids (Reprise) is 6 minutes of rehashed noise from Kids (Prelude) the actual song.

wish they woulda just cut all that poo poo out, chopping the runtime in half, and just released it on a 7"
