Born At Midnite ready us for Halloween with stylish neon “Alternity”

Montreal duo Born at Midnite are releasing a new EP called Alternity in a few weeks, and, having previously shared the opening track “Y o Y”, they today gift us the unsettling yet irresistible title track just in time for Halloween. They say:

“In all times and realities the ruling class have the best parties – they might seem upstanding and conventional but are truly the most debaucherous. Happy Halloween fuckers.”

Born at Midnite show the range of their DIY stylings with “Alternity”, incorporating an invigorating drum beat alongside bouncing neon synths and slick guitar licks to create a stylish, swaggering whole. It’s the perfect setting for this tale of a high-class party, where everyone’s wearing designer clothes and bopping around in this rarified social strata. But there’s a seedy, perhaps violent, undercurrent behind all the glamour, which is suggested in the slightly surreal lyricism then gets punctured through to the surface with the repeated spine-tingling whisper: “don’t fuck with me”.

Check out “Alternity” below or find it on streamers.

Born at Midnite’s Alternity EP arrives on November 18 through Arbutus (pre-order/save). You can find the duo on Twitter and Instagram.
