Ever wanted to know how it feels to hang in the Bushwick/Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York? Well, The Midnight recreates the authentic picturesque experience of a night out in the community district with their new single ‘Brooklyn. Friday. Love.’ The song and visuals really resonate with us at THP, reminiscing on summer nights, stumbling into a bar, full of people from all walks of life, coming together for a drink and good ambiance. So come along with the THP team as we teleport to a chill midnight spot in Brooklyn with The Midnight.
We start the night at a bar filled with characters seeking conversations and cocktails after dealing with the city that never sleeps. From hip-hop purists to jazz obscurists to the tourists seeking an authentic New Yorker experience, The Midnight depicts a typical, yet vibrant scenario you can encounter in modern-day Brooklyn. But behind the noise and chaos of cute meets and overdue reunions, on this particular night, there’s also karaoke, which yields our narration of the events unfolding before the viewer’s eyes in ‘Brooklyn. Friday. Love.’ Coupled with a heavily inspired 80s-style instrumental, this track and video conjure up a great time with old friends and new strangers. In summary, whether from Mississippi or La La Land, there’s nothing quite like a Friday night in Brooklyn.
“It was Brooklyn, it was Friday, it was love
From this roof, you can see the stars
We are the left bank dreamers and the avant-garde
I’ll sing my borrowed song on your borrowed guitar
It was Brooklyn, it was Friday, it was love”
‘Brooklyn. Friday. Love’ by The Midnight
