Right on track for their usual release schedule, 80s synthwave pop duo The Midnight has released “America Online”, apparently bringing them forward a decade.

No group I know better captures the concept of Mono no aware, a Japanese phrase meaning “the sad beauty of seeing time pass – the aching awareness of impermanence.” Simply put: “sad nostalgia.” The new track is no different, bringing back memories of late night chat sessions and a need to feel like you belong, all the while wondering if the Internet has actually brought us closer.

The new single means there’s a good chance we’ll see new music from The Midnight within the next couple months. You can read out Bite-Sized Review on their album Kids here and check out the new track below:
