The Midway State - The Midway State
So describes The Midway State debut, self-titled EP. Nathan Ferraro has a very soft, calm voice which is soothing and relaxing. Ever had that one CD where you think it is better to listen to with headphones? So is how this EP is delivered.
So, it's good?
For sure. Songs like "Met A Man On Top The Hill" has weaknesses, of course, like slightly (actually, highly) repetitive lyrics, but the piano-drivenness of it makes it so good. "Unaware" features a weakness in Ferraro's voice--the vocals are horrible, especially in the intro, but the drumming in the song is very mood-setting and good. "A Million Butterflies" is easily the best closing song to a CD ever with the spectacular piano intro which leads you into Ferraro's voice getting deeper and stronger.

I think The Midway State will be a great up and coming band, there music is very different from most! Although Nathan the lead singer does not have the best vocal abilities it fits unbelievably well he has a unique sound to him which I like. They are a band that when you hear them for the first time especially songs like "A Million Fireflies" And "Met A Man On Top Of The Hill" you are like "WOW" There is just something about them that immediately attracts you!!
