Midnight Larks are a surf noir, dark country and garage-psych trio from Atlanta, Georgia that have had a very successful first year together. They were just named best new Atlanta band by Stomp and Stammer, listed as one of the 55 most anticipated local albums of 2016 by Immersive Atlanta, and have also received several features from Creative Loafing after sharing bills with bands like Shannon and the Clams, The Coathangers, Biters and Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires. They are a local favorite and have been invited to play several festivals like Lakewoodstock, Phoenix Fest, the East Atlanta Strut and the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade.
The band hails from Atlanta, but their roots are much further based. Sasha Kaleidoscopia Vallely being from Birmingham in the UK, Nikki Speake from Dadeville, Alabama and Pietro Di Gennaro from Baltimore, Maryland.
Sasha (formerly of Spindrift, The Warlocks and The Mobsters; cameos with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Singapore Sling, Lords of Altamont, as well as with members of Portishead and Massive Attack), Nikki (Shantih Shantih, Sioux City Sue, Whistle Bait, Virgil Otis and 30 Year Old Women From Mars) and Pietro (Black Linen, The Booze, The Forty Fives, Bad Spell and Andrew & the Dyspyramids) were thrown together by fate, a PBR representative, good fortune and a love for great music. They have only played together briefly, but are already producing an exciting sound and new buzz — ready to take Atlanta and the rest of the world by storm.
