[REVIEW] Fly By Midnight – ‘The Boombox Series’ EP

Fly By Midnight have become one of our favorite artists to watch and with the release of their new cover EP, The Boombox Series, we’re even more smitten!

Paying homage to three of the biggest female driven pop anthems of the early 2000s, The Boombox Series is everything we didn’t know we needed. Starting off with Avril Lavigne’s 2002 hit, “Complicated,” we’re brought right back to those years of youthful innocence when our biggest problem was figuring out where we were going to sit at lunch.

Once Michelle Branch’s 2001 hit, “Everywhere,” (which tugged on my heartstrings) comes into play, it’s pretty evident that these guys can do no wrong as they manage to liven up a classic, turning it into a new electro-pop dream fitting for any decade.

The dance party continues with the band’s electrifying cover of Rihanna’s 2007 hit, “Umbrella.” Many artists have covered this track over the past decade but nothing beats this one’s poppy vibes! The video outtakes are pretty epic as well. After making every cover their own, it’s no secret that Fly By Midnight are on their way to an amazing 2018.

The Boombox Series is available now here.
