"cute, skewed, folky pop from this london three-piece (note from kiran: there were six of us playing on the tracks..!). some of it's too silly, but it's unpretentious. 4/5" - Rhythm Mag

“ the first time I heard Kiran’s voice I was knocked out by it’s perfection. I said at the time (on my radio show for Xfm Manchester) that I’d not heard such a technically perfect female voice since Eva Cassidy. This perfection though doesn’t come at the expense of soul. Kiran is one of the great British women singers of today.

That gift, coupled with a great talent for songwriting and a brilliant band, ( The Night Owls) should mean we’ll be hearing a lot of these cats over the next few years.”

Clint Boon, Inspiral Carpets / Xfm Manchester - Clint Boon, XFM Manchester, UK

"The production is top notch. Without too much fancy arrangement the integrity of the songs is retained totally intact. The band underpin the songs which, with a less accomplished singer, might be described as a sparse touch. On this album it is as though the band is filling the sound out a little whilst taking a step backwards to allow Kiran's voice find its full expression without straining. The result is magic - a dreamy quality is there but the songs are direct and heart-felt."

Still working on that hot first release.



Somewhere in between day and night comes Mary at Midnight.
A little bit Indian, a little bit English, Mary at Midnight couples live instruments with dreamy sampled beats, blending them with words often born from the chromosomes of too little sleep and an over-active imagination.

The odd tabla beat or harmonium drone is wrapped up in a comforting blanket of satisfying electro beats and ethereal vocals.

Influenced by previous musical projects within a wide range of genres, from intimate folk to a bit of the louder stuff, Mary at Midnight draws many references but maintains very much her own sound.

Currently writing tracks with Talvin Singh, and plotting the first few gigs with the live band, Mary at Midnight will very soon be floating around the ether somewhere between daytime and the magic that only the depths of a dark night can provide.
