The Midnight Greetings, the solo bedroom pop project of Cebu-based singer-songwriter Kyle Maraton, paints a drowsy picture of emptiness on his debut single “Youth”—released today.
Entangled in the woes of suburban teenage ennui and reckless sentiments, The Midnight Greetings delivers a coming-of-age soundtrack with timeless appeal. On his latest song “Youth,” Kyle wears his Gen Z angst on the sleeves, balancing authenticity with aesthetic value, and chronicling important issues that young folks experience on a daily basis—be it addressing mental health problems or the need to be seen or heard.
The lo-fi pop tune makes good on the promise of Kyle’s shaggy charm and confessional songwriting, reflecting on his struggles of losing track of time and being an inconvenience to everyone.
