Midnight Sister is the LA-based duo of multi-disciplinary artists Juliana Giraffe and Ari Balouzian, whom we last heard from on their 2017 debut album Saturn Over Sunset. They have made their welcome return this week with a delightful new tune called “Wednesday Baby”.
Although we are late in posting it, as “Wednesday Baby” appropriately dropped yesterday, Midnight Sister’s return is so dream-inducing that it’s worthy of mentioning any day of the week – besides, it’s named after Giraffe’s rescue dog anyway. The track breezes forth on plinking pianos and ethereal wisps of vocals all around her central voice. She is ever reminiscent of Nico in her rich tones, and “Wednesday Baby” is not dissimilar to the late singer’s classic “These Days”, but there’s no harm in evoking a song like that – especially when it’s done so charmingly.
“Wednesday Baby” also arrives with a video by Eric Bernsen, which you can watch below.
