Juliana Giraffe and Ari Balouzian make art pop with a cinematic flair as Midnight Sister. Both natives of the San Fernando Valley and graduates of the same high school a few years apart, they met when Balouzian, a classically trained musician, wrote the score for a short film scripted by Giraffe and her sister, a friend of Balouzian's. When he followed up by sending some instrumental music to Giraffe, she returned it with vocals -- they liked the results and decided to keep working together. With an off-kilter, retro-futurist demeanor, their debut album was inspired by the local characters and mythology of L.A. Titled Saturn Over Sunset, it arrived via the Jagjaguwar label in 2017. ~ Marcy Donelson
