Listen to the debut album 'Modern Nostalgia' released Feb 16, 2018.
Combining the earnest tonality of indie and classic rock with the hard hitting, uplifiting rhythms of funk and hip hop; MIDCENTURY has a sound that is as fresh as it is familiar. Midway between old and new, the music is a unique pastiche of influence that is both nostalgic and post-modern. We hail from all over the U.S., yet it feels as though we hatched from the same pod. For peas.
"Austin’s Midcentury may be fresh, but their members are veterans of the local music scene (namely yacht rock-esque outfit Wonderbitch). Their sound blends decades of intentional and unintentional influences, from contemporary notes by the Bright Light Social Hour to Cut Copy to classic rock with a hint of that 80s sax je ne sai quoi, ultimately creating something fresh and totally their own.
“Warrior” is the group’s debut single and a brilliant display of the quartet’s proclivity for creating a sound that is as intricate as it is catchy. Blending some smokey, 80s rock glory with a contemporary indie mood, “Warrior” charges ahead with full ear worm status."
