Rush Midnight is the solo project of Russ Manning (the former bass player of Twin Shadow) whose debut EP, +1 drops October 30th. While he may be stepping out of the ‘shadow’ and into the spotlight, Rush Midnight didn’t completely detach himself from his old band-member; Twin Shadow (George Lewis Jr.) produced multiple tracks on the release.
Meanwhile, Rush Midnight’s new video for “The Night Was Young Enough” is a sweaty, sultry dance clip (think ‘Fame’ meets ‘Call On Me’) that’s sure to have viewers craving a night out (and maybe some lycra).
“In the midst of a demanding touring schedule with Twin Shadow and endless nights on the road, Russ recorded a handful of demos in hotel rooms and disparate studios over the course of two years. A formally trained jazz musician, Russ was born and bred in Brooklyn, and his music propagates an undeniable sense of attitude and sexuality. As much inspired by his travels across Europe, Brazil and Australia, his debut EP, +1, personifies the thrill, mystery and recklessness of abandoning the guidebook and giving yourself over to the forces of fate.” [Big Hassle]
