Genre: Electronic Rock
Midnight Soundtrack is the side project of singer-songwriter Marcio Novelli. The electronic rock undertaking is Novelli’s way to expand his musical focus from the pop/rock of which he is more inclined. His latest album Foreplay was released on September 25, 2015. The album’s theme is a musical journey through a chaotic night detailing the events of a typical romantic relationship. With this in mind, the names “Midnight Soundtrack” and “Foreplay” are very fitting. The album follows this love/lust story from beginning to end. The concept of the album is one we can all relate to, and its upbeat sounds symbolize the excitement we feel when embarking upon a new relationship. However, when listening to the lyrics you hear more about the complications and letdowns relationships can bring to our lives as well.
Although electronic rock is not a genre I am very familiar with, one has to admire Novelli for the ten-track project that clearly demonstrates his diverse musical skill and ability. A true artist is one who can push his/her boundaries through genre and what is expected. Head to Midnight Soundtrack’s Bandcamp hear Foreplay and listen to the tangled love story for yourself.
