Sanson band releases single
Manawatu¯ band Midnight Switch will crank up the volume as it celebrates the release of its new single.
The band will bring its high energy, original rock show, featuring In My Blood, back to the Sanson Club on February 17.
Guitarist Jason Devlin said the single had played on several radio shows, including Axe Attack on i Heart Radio, AMR in Australia, Radio Control, KAOS in Blenheim and The Molten Metal Show in Christchurch.
A music video has been uploaded to YouTube.
It was filmed at the Sanson Club, Devlin said, so would give punters a good idea what the show on Saturday would be like.
The video was funded by the Palmerston North City Council and the Creative Communities Scheme.
Manawatu¯ teenager Brittany Hazelgrove was a guest musician on the recording, but she has since moved to Auckland for university so won’t be performing with the band this time. She joined the band for several gigs, belting out the groove on the saxophone.
‘‘Sax is not often heard in hard rock music, but when it is, such as the music of George Thorogood, it sounds so fat and powerful. It’s just magic’’.
Devlin said more singles were on the way and even hinted at reuniting with Hazelgrove for a potential gig in Auckland.
Special guests, the Travelling Lounge Room, will also perform as special guests.
Devlin said the band’s catchy, upbeat and original sound always put smiles on audience faces.
Midnight Switches shows in Sanson last year ended with a packed house chanting for more and Devlin said there were promises of a bigger and better show this time around.
