Fly By Midnight | Artist Watch

Fly By Midnight are preparing to take over the pop landscape with their infectious anthemic, indie-pop blend.

If you aren’t one of the nearly 200k subscribers to the boys YouTube channel – firstly, why? Secondly, go subscribe now – you will have probably heard one of their covers while scrolling down your Facebook feed.

The duo, made up of MTV’s Dream Bigger reality star and multi-instrumentalist, Justin Bryte, and The Emergence Music Group’s producer, Slavo, have made quite the mark in the viral world – 3.5 million views on one video isn’t half bad, is it?

Said video is their cover of Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez‘s, “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” a rather simple cover, replacing the carrying beat with a heavier synth –  simple but effective!

The best way to describe the duo’s sound is; modern day indie-pop (leaning more to the pop side) with 80s influences.

They have a long list of covers, from Calvin Harris and Rihanna‘s “This Is What You Came For,” The Chainsmokers and Halsey‘s “Closer,” and even the new hit from Julia Michaels‘ “Issues.”

If you’re sat there thinking, “oh, I’d love to hear an original track,” well, you’re in luck, my friend!

Latest single, “Vinyl,” sticks close to their brand of anthemic, 80s, indie-pop, but the track itself is a smart twist on a love song. Bashing new-age technology and how it is changing culture, and more importantly, putting a strain on relationships – I mean, this is the first few lines…

I wish we met in ’78/Oh wouldn’t it be great to get your number on a napkin/’Cause now I can’t appreciate meeting face to face/It’s all internet interaction.

A couple of other originals exist too, the irresistible Owl City-esque, “Karaoke,” as well as their debut single, “BROOKLYN.”

If you’re still hungry for more originals, you don’t have to wait long! Fly By Midnight are just putting the finishing touches to their long anticipated debut EP, Party Favors.

We’ll be having a cheeky chat with the boys very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

Check out “Vinyl” below and let us know what you think!
