Music with a midnightsound! There is chanson and tango, jazz and folk, and nothing else quite like it.

In the blue of the night, in the twilight zone between dream and reality, Midnattsorkestern ("The Midnight Orchestra") exist. The group was founded in Gothenburg, Sweden 2009 and has its own specific sound influenced by chanson and tango among other things. The consistent theme of finely tuned melancholy and night time moods has given rise to the name of the orchestra. Music and lyrics by David Löfberg. The singer Elina Ryd is in the center, and her voice is supported by string quartet, accordion, guitar and bass. Their first record was released in 2012.
