Midnight Opera(Dallas, TX)

"Unpredictable songwriting; waterfalls of catharsis; gorgeous, haunting melodies ... Siamese’s [Midnight Opera's] slinky, groovy art rock is sophisticated far beyond the band’s short lifespan." - NY Observer

Midnight Opera is the glam rock band of four theatrically inclined friends from Dallas, TX. Mixing ominous art pop with opulent set design and deranged alter egos, their live show makes you feel like you could go out and invent a new color, or wear a leotard to work.

The group’s debut release The Mesmerist, tracked with producer Alex Bhore at Elmwood Recording, was released March 3, 2017. With two monolithic bookends and a slew of twists in between, the record treks through the charming, soothing and savage, with lyrics inspired by sociopathic film characters and a few shades of identity crisis.

A prime example of this is the first single, Chromatose, a sardonic shout out to the neighborhood dilettantes. Singer Nicole Marxen-Myers croons over slinky guitar riffs and a revelatory climax before the track slips into bittersweet comedown.

The band - comprised of Paul Alonzo (bass), Paul Grass (drums), Nicole Marxen-Myers (keys, vocals) and Teddy Georgia Waggy (guitar, vocals) - materialized in 2015 as a means to intersect music, performance and visual art. To do so, they take elements from carpentry to choreography to costume design, and their live shows have come to serve as a parallel universe for the members to act out alternate identities and face the terror of vulnerability with their audiences.

Midnight Opera is set to spend 2017 touring the U.S., expanding their collaborations with the Dallas theater, visual arts and fashion communities, and teaching their guitarist how to put on makeup.
