Brisbane, Australia is the home for Sons of Midnight and boy, do I love this band. Their debut album is a smorgasbord of melodic rock/pop with AOR-ish choruses. Their lead singer Conrad Sewell reminds a bit of the 80´s artist Sam Harris, you know the guy behind "Sugar don´t bite". But soundwise, this band plays in the same league as Invertigo and Indecent Obsessions. Just listen to songs like "The realist", "I don´t get it" and "Hard to love you" and you´ll see what I mean. The single "The fire" is a killer, but then again, this album is all killer no filler. The ballad "Saints and sinners" can be described as a mix between Savage Garden and John Farnham, soooo good. The production from Martin Hansen (The Rasmus, Scorpions) is topnotch, I´ve got myself a new favorite band. What about you?
