Thank You for Your Time is the 4th single from Nottingham 6-piece Midnight Rodeo, representing a slight departure from the band’s thus far signature West Coast psychedelic stylings as they continue to diversify their sound in anticipation of an upcoming album release.
The song lurches in on all fours, with a thunderous rhythm and a smokescreen of dense, resonant feedback and enigmatic synth - more reminiscent of modern Aussie Psychedelic Rock than euphoric 60’s Californication. A dynamically rich lead guitar line dances around the ethereal vocal melody and driving bassline, all three elements responding to one another intuitively as the track builds through two anthemic choruses to one final “fuck it, everyone gets a solo” heavy metal homage.
Musically, the arrangement reflects a conscious decision by the band to write the most entertaining set-closer possible, a feat they have only recently bested with an as yet unreleased cut from their untitled forthcoming album.
Lyrically, lead singer Maddy Chamberlain stands in solidarity with everyone that’s ever had to serve a piss-drunk stag party at a nightclub, suffered the cringe-inducing pantomime of a sales job or endured the eye-rolling shenanigans of a David Brent-esque line manager. It’s a vindicating dedication to the under-appreciated junior staff member. Think ‘9 to 5’ if Dolly Parton had a fuzz pedal.
