It makes total sense that the genesis of Meggie Lennon’s Night Shift came on a late night bike ride. Filled with the hazy memories a night out with friends that is still replaying in the mind, synth melodies spiral by like motifs for passing street lights and neon fronted shop fronts. Pushing and pulling like Phil Spector gone digital, flashes of melody whir in and out of consciousness – with each new part that spills from Lennon’s mouth somehow catchier than the last. Lennon’s wispy voice is easy on the ears too – Night Shift could soundtrack a lazy morning comedown just as perfectly as it could a hedonistic soirée.
Debut album, Sounds From Your Lips, is out on 9th July though Mothland.
