Midnight Juggernauts are an Australian alternative dance trio attracting attention worldwide for their electronica/dance music, which has led them to play alongside Justice on their late 2007 world tour before touring with !!!, Holy Fuck, Crystal Castles and Klaxons across Europe. They are associated with the new rave movement of dance music which is currently streaming from Australia in the forms of Van She, Cut Copy, The Presets, Pnau and Grafton Primary.
Their sound is dirty electro with a techno edge, epic sounding lyrics, anthemic Bowie influenced vocals, dirty organs, combined with Crystal Castles 8-bit melodies and pure Justice dance euphoria. Midnight Juggernauts are exactly as the name suggests, an unstoppable force, best listened to well after midnight, and into the early hours of the morning.
Pick up 'Road To Recovery' from their 2007 album Dystopia, a fantastic Danger remix of 'Into The Galaxy', and (if you're into M83, which I am) a complete M83 rework of Shadows, just below.
