    A couple of years on from the release of debut album Messes, Detroit’s Stef Chura arrives fresh from the announcement that this summer will see the release of Midnight, her gritty, vehement new album which was recorded and produced by Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest. It’s also Stef’s first new collection of songs for the Saddle Creek label.

    Full of big, bold, beautiful guitar-pop songs, if its predecessor was a raw, somewhat unadorned document of Stef’s work, then Midnight is the muscular, swaggering evolution. “This album has a depth to it and a particular sound because of Will,” Stef states regarding Toledo’s input, and it’s true to say that his spiky nuances can be found across the length and breadth of Midnight, the record presenting an exhilarating rush of sound and colour as Stef’s spirited vocal and signature guitar sound unravels alongside in a thrilling meeting of ideas and influences.

    Equal parts thrilling and angsty, Midnight is a testament to the collaborative process, a record that makes the very most of those who came together to make it, but more than that, it’s a firm statement of Chura’s tenacity and perseverance; the work of an artist never resting on their laurels but leaping onwards and upwards, no matter what.
