Two Seconds To Midnight

About Two Seconds To Midnight: Blending brooding strings, intricate rhythms and the brutally honest lyrics of Scottish front man Zig Payton that effortlessly morph from hear-a-pin-drop intimacy to soaring through-the-roof-and-beyond codas, comparisons have been drawn to the likes of Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Mogwai and The Frames but even the band themselves admit to not really planning where the music can go next, leaving a vast frontier in front of them. That’s the way they like it.

It started as a acoustic ‘side-project’ between Zig Payton and Hannah Hens-Piazza to pass time between other projects, rehearsing in a wine bar in Queens before the bar opened its doors to the public. They toiled away on Zig’s songs of messy love, longing and bad hangovers. Josh Moyer soon joined the fold and took things to the next level, adding his unique rhythms and soon after, with the help of some local musician friends to round out the sound, they released their debut ‘Architecture’ in 2010.

A stroke of luck hit when HBO caught wind of the song ‘Opt1m1sm’ from that album and used it in the worldwide promo campaign for the second season of Boardwalk Empire.

Since then they have been working on their much anticipated follow up with legendary drummer/producer Joey Waronker (Beck, Atoms For Peace, REM) in the co-production and mixing seat, due for release in 2013.
