My Midnight Heart is Angelica Allen, a New York songwriter whose stunning pipes have landed her touring memberships with acts as diverse as symphonic prog project Trans Siberian Orchestra and nü-disco collective Escort. But Allen’s voice both literal and figurative can best be heard in her own music, as My Midnight Heart. Like contemporaries Blood Orange and Kelela, she trades in a combination of dream-like R&B and drifty electronic textures without ever lacking for propulsion. Above, you’ll hear the titular song from her just-released Chest of Hearts EP. It’s a stunner of a track, wedded with an eye-catching anime (a wee bit NSFW) whose flavor seems inspired by Akira and Ninja Scroll.
