Tori Cross / Midnight / Single Review

monsterid

Soul, Pop, and R&B converge into a new, stunning single.

Tori Cross from Birmingham, UK is a singer songwriter with a versatile, sultry, and characterful voice. Her music bridges the divide between soul, pop, and R&B, and her beautiful melodies remind of icons like Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin.

Recently, Tori released a beautiful new Single titled “Midnight.” This song has a classy sound, with a smooth production. The quality of each element in the arrangement is absolutely spot-on, and we are big fans of the way the artist allowed herself to really feel the vibe of this release.
 
She sounds comfortable singing over the background, and she soars through the mix with a lot of attitude.
 
This track has a slightly retro vibe, with a very cool early 90s flavor. However, the sound is also contemporary and vibrant, showcasing the fuller range of Tori’s masterful vocal skills.
 
Midnight is co-produced by Tori and fellow musician/producer Tee Soulful, whom has recently toured with Paloma Faith and mixed in Parr Street studios in Liverpool where the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Coldplay have all worked. It is a follow up from her well-received debut Single “Looking Up” and the second Single “Calling You Out” released earlier this year.
 
Lyrics to Midnight
V1
In the midnight hour
I hear your crying baby
In the midnight hour
I hear you talking to me
When the lights go down
I see you through the darkness
In the midnight hour
I feel you closer to me
Bridge
Dancing under the stars
I know where you are
Though we’re miles apart
I know where you are
V2
They can pull down
I know they will try to honey
I can see you now
Pulling yourself right back up
Can you feel me now
I’m right behind you
Someway somehow
I’ll bring you back to life
Bridge
Dancing under the stars
I know where you are
Though we’re miles apart
I know where you are
Chorus
Tell me, what you think I need to hear
Whisper it in my ear cause the truth won’t die
Show me your venerability
do it beautifully under the midnight sky
Middle 8
I feel like I’m closer to you in the evening
My mind’s in overdrive, I should be sleeping
Oh won’t you just
Chorus
Tell me, what you think I need to hear
Whisper it in my ear cause the truth won’t die
Show me your venerability
do it beautifully under the midnight sky
Tell me, what you think I need to hear
Whisper it in my ear cause the truth won’t die
Show me your venerability
do it beautifully under the midnight sky
