MT WARNING started as a side project, a collaboration between me and @taylorsteele , a space to jam ideas sonically and push our own creative visions. I couldn’t have guessed it would take me around the world; Africa, Europe, States… making amazing friends and connecting deeply with my passion for sharing music. Thanks for the good times brother T, happy birthday little album, go and take people on their journeys. Midnight Set by MT WARNING – Friday March 28 2014 – Mikey.

Some words and reviews of MIDNIGHT SET…
“Sonically, ‘Midnight Set’ is stunning. Really. With just enough stylistic variation to hold listener interest (whilst remaining incredibly cohesive), it moves through reverb-heavy soundscapes, such as Alaska, to guitar-fuelled rock tracks like Tattoo. Album highlights include singles Youth Bird and the utterly captivating Forward Miles, with its slow-burner pace, metronomic percussion and hypnotic backing vocals.” - AAA BACKSTAGE
“…a wonderfully constructed and lyrically poetic debut…bold, dynamic, and beautifully crafted…” – MUSIC FEEDS

A new ‘video graffiti’ inspired clip of “Sinking Sun” shot overnight by Mikey and Taylor (MT WARNING) before the band hits the road for the Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros supports in Sydney & Melbourne.
“This album version (made up of two one takes) is the introspective moment of being part of something whilst being alone…. but never lonely. The montage projected behind are images that were filmed in Mexico, the faded images allude to those memories of places we’ve been and ones we wish to reach.” – Mikey

“Mikey Bee’s psych-folk compositions – are immensely affecting, moving between rousing anthems such as “Youth Bird” and “Like a Tattoo” and more reflective pieces such as “Anchor”. – UNCUT MAGAZINE 7/10
“sinewy introspection of the National and the revelatory grandeur of Sigur Ros”. – THE GUARDIAN
