U.K. based Past Midnight, led by vocalist Soffie, gained attention with their stripped-back versions of well known tracks.
The group debuted in early 2017 with their version of "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" (ZAYN, Taylor Swift) which quickly built traction online, accumulating over a million streams. The track was later included on the compilation Acoustic Covers: The Album. That same year, the group's acoustic rework of Martin Jensen's "Solo Dance" was included on Hed Kandi Acoustic (Ministry Of Sound).
Past Midnight's first album Phases arrived in 2018, bringing together all of the group's covers to date plus some new recordings.
They returned later in 2018 with an acoustic rendition of Livin' Joy's club classic "Dreamer", recorded especially for the Sony Music compilation album Heartstrings (UK top 10).
