The Brummies offer a little spice and flavor to the work week with the 80s themed, black-lit music video for “After Midnight.” The Nashville-based, Alabama-bred trio rock out in the basement alongside choreographed aerobic dancers and some creatures of the night inspired by the 1989 family fantasy flick, “Little Monsters.” The band even enlisted some family members and close friends to jump in on the adventure.
“Dazzling summer jam…an irresistible listen, effortlessly riding a wave between shiny pop and rock ‘n’ roll.” – Variance
“Polished, rhythmic rock” – AL.com (Alabama)
“A fluffy hug of indie rock touched with soulful harmonies, funk rockish guitar licks, and blessed by a synth wave softness. The production feels like the all-inclusive hybrid funk rock jams of the 70’s with a twist of big pop that makes it timeless.” – American Pancake
“Certainly a welcome slice of escapism.” – American Songwriter
“Lush” – Rolling Stone
“Shimmering” – Billboard

The Brummies are composed of John Davidson, Jacob Bryant, and Trevor Davis. Known for their fresh blend of urgent rock & roll, dreamy indie-folk, and piercing songwriting, the band has a timeless sound crafted by three players in possession of an almost telekinetic musical shorthand.
“This is our dark disco song,” said Jacob.
“It started with me playing this rhythm on keys one night,” continued Trevor. “At first, it was this long rocking jam that went into this dark halftime outro.”
“[The harmonies were] particularly fun. I was looking for something that deviated from the main melody in the chorus.” said John. “This song started on a synth, which is the first thing you hear in the song. That was always compelling and it eventually evolved into what is now “After Midnight.”
Variance Magazine, who originally premiered the track, said “It might seem like summer is quickly disappearing (or maybe it feels like it never arrived), but “After Midnight” may just have you thinking twice about that, delivering the perfect escape from these weird times.
Only two years ago, The Brummies made their debut in 2018 with the full-length album Eternal Reach, which received high praise from critics and featured GRAMMY award-winning, singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves on the song “Drive Away.” The band returned this year with “Hillside,” which featured in the trailer for Dads, a film-festival favorite directed by Bryce Dallas Howard. Their last single “Sunshine” captured the essence of the late Bill Withers, and now “After Midnight” takes listeners to the darkside.
