NEW ALBUM: FLY BY MIDNIGHT | SILVER CRANE (DELUXE EDITION)
Indie pop duo Fly By Midnight know a thing or two about quick changes. The New York-bred pairing traded the hectic pace and shimmering lights of the city for the coolness of Los Angeles –– and it took a minute for Justin Bryte and Slavo to find their footing. Trusting in their decision and embracing their new home's creative, collaborative environment bled into creating their new album "Silver Crane." Today they release the deluxe edition of the album, which contains six additional tracks that include acoustic demo versions of "No Choice" and new tracks "Live For You, Die WithYou" and "I Miss NYC," plus two remixes of "Borrow Your Time" with one that features Yasumu. The album has been released in single song increments over the past year and a half, with the last unheard from the tracklist titled “North,” released in the previous year, which concludes the album as a sort of opus. Over a synth-filled mix, the pair explore an encounter that completely flips their expectations upside down and turns a new leaf in their outlook on life. Most of "Silver Crane" was created this way –– shooting ideas back and forth and bouncing concepts off of collaborators with a screen separating them, but never hindering that connection. Fly By Midnight met in 2014 in Staten Island, deciding to form the duo after a co-writing session. They are well known for their viral cover of “We Don’t Talk Anymore” by Charlie Puth, with more than 25 million views on YouTube.
