Artist Biography

Black Midi is a London-based experimental post-punk band that formed in 2017. The band formed after the members graduated from The BRIT School, an institution that produced Amy Winehouse and the Kooks. Black Midi built a cult following early on as they became a staple band at Brixton’s new-band haunt The Windmill. The band kept a mysterious air about them by limiting their interviews and staying off of social media. However, they got attention with their insane live shows which led them to perform a live session in 2018 for radio station NTS at Flesh & Bone Studios in Hackney. The same year they released their debut single “bmbmbm” via Speedy Wunderground. Their debut LP Schlagenheim came in 2019. In 2021, Black Midi released their second album Cavalcade and did a limited EP Live-Cade. In 2022, the band released the EP Cavalcovers which features covers of songs by King Crimson, Taylor Swift, and Captain Beefheart. The same year Black Midi released their third album Hellfire.
