Scottish ambient post-prog rock duo MIDAS FALL – Elizabeth Heaton and Rowan Burn – has unveiled their fourth single, “Dust And Bone” for communal delight. The entrancing tune comes courtesy of the band’s impending new full-length, Evaporate, set for release on April 27th.
“Dust And Bone” ratchets up the tension with dark, ominous drones paired with shards of discordant melodies and Heaton’s quietly unsettling vocals, rising to a jarring, impassioned climax that reflects the track’s themes of inner turmoil.
Immerse yourself in the track below where you can also sample the record’s title track, “Bruise Pusher,” and “Soveraine.”
MIDAS FALL‘s Evaporate will be released worldwide by Monotreme Records on April 27th on CD and digital formats, as well as a limited pressing of 500 LPs on 180-gram vinyl (200 black and 300 clear blue/black). For preorders, visit THIS LOCATION.
Produced and recorded by Heaton in Argyll, Scotland, Evaporate shimmers with a dark, gothic grace, delicate and brutal in equal measure. From the desperate, savage cacophony of “Bruise Pusher” to the elegant ascension of “Sword To Shield,” the record conjures stunning soundscapes at every turn.
Combining elements of electronica, post-rock, and alternative with progressive and gothic undertones, MIDAS FALL has over the course of their existence carved a distinctive and captivating sound, creating taut, shimmering soundscapes led by the hauntingly melancholic vocals of Elizabeth Heaton – a sound described as, “powerful yet fragile, devastatingly beautiful and beautifully devastating” (The Founder Magazine).
