Independent Venue Week
For fans of… Wolf Alice, The White Stripes, CHVRCHES
Alternative duo from Scotland, Midnight Ambulance, formed between Paris and North Berwick in lockdown 2020. Amelia (vocals/drums) and Fraser (guitar/vocals) reconnected after losing touch for many years and began collaborating via video call as a creative and cathartic outlet. Together, they create dark and powerful soundscapes completed with delicate melodies, leaving you intrigued… but slightly scared. Their sound builds a unique and mysterious atmosphere that combines sinister and distorted instruments with folk-inspired vocals. Influences: The White Stripes, Billie Eilish, The National, Phoebe Bridgers, The Ninth Wave.
