Kids At Midnight brings to mind Grimes and Eurythmics with her nostalgic, romantic pop

Words by Tom Parker

Kids At Midnight has just revealed her much-anticipated debut album, All I Ever Wanted Was Your Love.

The effervescent synth-pop of Kids At Midnight brings to mind Grimes or a contemporary Eurythmics. The solo project of Melbourne-based vocalist and producer, Jane Elizabeth Hanley, Kids At Midnight has just revealed her debut album – All I Ever Wanted Was Your Love standing as a whimsical expression of romance and nostalgia.

Kids At Midnight’s music has been described as “The soundtrack to a teen romance film that never existed”, and when album track, ‘Boys Like You’, featured on the hit US Netflix series, Never Have I Ever, Hanley’s dreamy, affecting pop prowess was solidified.

With Kids At Midnight’s name rapidly on the rise, the release of her debut album couldn’t come soon enough. Now, punters can bask in Kids At Midnight’s dulcet pop craft via an enchanting 11-track journey.

“After a couple of years of promising this album and life and love drama getting in the way, writing and producing these songs and then finally getting to the place I could let them go, it feels so amazing to have it ready right now,” Hanley says of the release.

“Not just to share with my new fans from my song being on Never Have I Ever, but as a slow motion rom-com running embrace to the people who’ve waited so patiently for its completion.”
