Midnight Repost is the alias used by emerging Essex songwriter Liam Priestnall, who started the project at the beginning of 2020. Liam started writing music at the age of 14 whilst playing drums in a grunge band. He then went on to study orchestral music at A Level, before moving on to film music at university in England and California. He is proficient in piano, drums, guitar and bass, which allows him to write and produce all of his own songs in meticulous detail. During the pandemic of 2020 and 2021, Liam would write over 30 finished demos for Midnight Repost from his bedroom.
Midnight Repost has a sound that mixes classic rock with modern pop and carries both themes of irony and sarcasm that are mixed with macabre messaging. Liam’s lyrics portray a sense of existential dread and insignificance of an individual, blended with impressions of self-importance, all while being radio-friendly. The sound of Midnight Repost is inspired by artists such as the 1975, Sam Fender, HAIM, Half-Alive, Blossoms and Beck.
