Midnight Ambulance are an alternative rock duo from Scotland.

Last year, old friends Fraser (guitar/vocals) and Amelia (drums/vocals) reconnected after losing touch for many years. When lockdown hit, they began collaborating as a creative and cathartic outlet. Their musical partnership quickly developed into something bigger, writing 70 songs by June 2020.

On Amelia’s return to Scotland, after eight months of writing together via video call, they finally had the opportunity to jam live and decided to form Midnight Ambulance.

In February 2021, they released their debut single ‘Black Gloves’ which quickly gained the attention of national media, including BBC Scotland Introducing (premiere) BBC Alba (Single of the Week) and The Scotsman on Sunday (Artist of the Week).

Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland) said “The debut single by Midnight Ambulance, Black Gloves is a brilliant first step. Ominous, looming and with a real sense of menace, the duo conjure a unique atmosphere with Amelia's heartfelt vocal and pounding drums front and centre, elegantly accompanied by Fraser's playing and production. This is a serious opening salvo and promises greatness in whatever they do next. As a listener, I am excited and slightly scared!!”
