Emerging Brooklyn-based folk-pop duo Late Night Thoughts, is back with their new EP Bridges & Tunnels, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below. As an added bonus, you can also stream the duo’s new single “Sacrifice” below as well!
“Bridges & Tunnels” serves as a snapshot of our first two years of post-grad life,” said the duo. “Our growing pains were centered around adjusting to life in young adulthood, uncertain of what the future might hold, yet somehow optimistic in the face of so much adversity. Entering this phase of our lives during the pandemic forced us to grow and change in ways we did not expect, but we remained focused on our goals and wrote these songs as honestly as we could in order to express what this formative time has meant to us.”
The EP features five brand new tracks from the duo, debuting a more developed, polished sound. Vocalist Brian Rauchshares, “Every facet of our being has taken a giant leap forward, from the clothes we wear to the videos we make and the music itself. This EP will take you on a journey through what life has been like for us as young adults trying to live out our dreams while struggling with our fears and holding on to love.”
Late Night Thoughts is the folk-pop duo of Brian Rauch (vocals, writer) and Michael Harlow(vocals, guitar, writer). Together, the young, grounded artists share their musically intuitive minds to create an emotional ride characterized by earnest lyrics and intricate harmonies/vocal textures.
The pair met while attending Brandeis University, and forged a friendship through a shared love for songwriting, beginning in a class titled “Protest Through Song,” and blossoming as they realized their keen ability to harmonize. Soon, the two began to write and perform across Massachusetts. Their first EP, Moonlit Memories, was released in 2018, and was followed by their second EP, Worth It, in 2019. The releases collectively have amassed over three million streams on various platforms.
Since graduating, the duo relocated to NYC where they have performed at various venues including Rockwood Music Hall, The Delancey, Mercury Lounge and The Well. Between all of their musical adventures, they have been carefully crafting their next batch of original music, ready for a new chapter of Late Night Thoughts.
