Interview with Tiffany Roth of Midnight Magic

Midnight Magic out of New York City sounds like a hidden gem that could have been lurking in some classic 70s record bin just waiting to be discovered. Their polished style is reminiscent of cosmic disco — skillfully drenched in funky guitar and jazzy bass, featuring an in your face horn section, spacey synthesizers and a rhythm section that could stand up to any classic disco band. The sensuously smoky vocals of Tiffany Roth are the icing on the cake, and she does an absolutely fantastic job of tying it all together. They are the ultimate party band, giving listeners the opportunity to get out and dance and feel good in an age when pop music takes itself so seriously. Their performances get people up and out of their seats every time with the help of Tiffany’s infectious enthusiasm and top notch vocal stylings.

Midnight Magic was founded in 2008, and they released their debut single “Beam Me Up” on German label Permanent Vacation in 2010 to critical acclaim. They released their debut full length in 2012 “Walking the Midnight Streets” solidifying their status as one to watch in  underground nightlife.
