Brooklyn-based a songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and director Dräger delivers dreamy synthwave number “Midnight Mystery,” led by brooding vocal lines that sweep over a moody synth pop soundscape.
With metaphor-laden lyrics capture a tale of love and loss, the hazy offering reflects upon an alternate reality founded in his own struggles. Inspired by a big move and a messy breakup, the track ruminates on the person he was, framed by touches of anxiety and a sense of rebirth.
Dark yet summery, the striking production brims with emotions that feel intimate and relatable all at once.
The track is accompanied by a Fred Joseph–directed video which channels a vibrant feel all washed out in neon lights and foggy textures to infuse a touch of mystique and nostalgia into our listening experience.
Influenced by diverse sounds and styles, from 80s synth pop to 90s psychedelia, Spencer Draeger’s latest production under the moniker of Dräger continues to flirt with 80s style as per his signature musicality, while also trying out something different and fresh.
