Midnight Ambulance

“Dark, powerful and mysterious.” Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

Midnight Ambulance are an alternative rock duo from Scotland. In 2021, they were shortlisted for BBC Introducing Scottish Act of the Year, and in 2022 released their debut EP ‘Smoke and Sweets’ at a sold out headline show at Sneaky Pete’s and The Caves (Edinburgh). They were featured on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Scotland (‘Single of the Week’), Apple Music (‘new in rock’), in the iTunes Top50 album charts and by Blackhall Records who released the EP on vinyl. Inspired by artists such as Portishead and Sylvan Esso, their music explores the peculiar force of our internal worlds. 

Amelia (vocals, drums) and Fraser (guitar, vocals) began collaborating several years ago after a chance encounter in Paris. Fraser, guitar technician for bands First Aid Kit and Sam Fender, was on tour in the city, while Amelia was pursuing a career in international PR with a French creative agency. Having briefly met on the Edinburgh music scene ten years prior, they discovered a captivating familiarity as they began to collaborate. What started as a cathartic outlet soon turned into something more, writing over 70 songs in a matter of weeks

Fraser also performed as a special guest for Sam Fender’s headline performance at TRNSMT Festival.

Together they create dark and powerful cinematic soundscapes that are contrasted with delicate, folk-inspired melodies, leaving you intrigued… “but slightly scared” (Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland). Their intense, trance-like quality is emphasised by their album artwork which is designed by magical-realist artist, Ritchie Collins.

“They are dark, brooding and extremely dynamic, using unconventional rhythms, foreboding melodies and heavy alt-rock guitars to build their intensely stirring sound – oscillating between moments of quiet reflection and heavily charged catharsis.” Suzanne Oswald, Tenement TV

“Haunting yet primal” (Backseat Mafia), they have headlined across the UK and internationally, and supported artists such as Texas, Twin Atlantic, The Pigeon Detectives and Fatherson. In 2023, they performed their debut international showcase at Future Echoes Festival (Sweden), Wide Days (Scottish Showcase) and Focus Wales (Welsh Showcase).
