This latest single from Tempist Fujit is best classified as an upbeat country pop rock piece. With a vibe that emanates in a similar way to Thirsty Merc's In The Summertime, Midnight Train has a meandering funky beat to it.
The guitars have a simple chord progression for rhythm, layered under a Donavon Frankenreiter-esque lead and solo, and also has a comparable sound to that of Zed and Powderfinger riffs.
The female vocals have strength and clarity, but perhaps a little too much of the focus in the song. The vocals sound disconnected from the instruments, and it affects the overall sound of it, drawing attention away from the other members of the group.
Overall, a refreshing track, with vocal clarity, and a funky blues guitar sound. An interesting time to release the track, as it feels much more of a laid-back summer tune, great for a road trip.
