The Greek dark electro / post-punk duo Midnight Poetry (John Spanos & Cleopatra Kaido) has just released its debut single, “Black Hole”. “Black Hole” is the first single (and video) taken from the band’s debut album, to be released later in 2024.

Midnight Poetry say this about “Black Hole”: “This song encapsulates the thoughts and emotions awakened in our memory after enduring a challenging situation from the past, which we relive in the present. This could stem from a separation, loss of a loved one, rejection, or other painful experiences. Such events are inescapable, compelling us to engage in a personal struggle to stay in control and avoid being consumed by the abyss that threatens our very being. The lyrics liken loneliness to a dead desert, where the soul, floating and dancing with a ghost, seeks to rediscover its essence.”

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
