“Midnight Surf” by The Velveteins

"Midnight Surf" by The Velveteins is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'.

“Midnight Surf” is an ode to sleeping, the track has a glazed feel with some experimentation thrown into the recording process”. The band release their debut full length Slow Wave on May 12th, via Fierce Panda.

“I had written the first half as sort of an ode to sleeping but wasn’t sure where to take it. Spencer had the second half written as it’s own individual song and when we smashed them together we knew it was a perfect fit. The songs theme comes from slow wave sleep, the deepest stage of sleep you enter in the evening. A sort of glazed feel, with a lot of experimentation in the recording process”
