Milwaukee’s Midnight Reruns have perfected power-pop with a slacker grit with plenty of classic rock riffs in the vein of Thin Lizzy. The lyrics read like an anxiety-riddled 20-something’s inner monologue in perfect detail. Singer-guitarist Graham Hunt talked with Radio Milwaukee about playing in bands in high school, having your musical hero produce your record, and the community and identity that music provides.
Midnight Reruns just released its third full-length album “Spectator Sports” today.
