“…a song that lifts the listener from their mundane state of being, transcending stale reality into a world of mist and luminescence.” — Cvlt Nation
This April, MIDAS FALL — the Scottish duo comprised of Elizabeth Heaton and Rowan Burn — will release their fourth studio offering, Evaporate.
A visceral display of ferocious beauty straight from the desperate, savage cacophony of album opener “Bruise Pusher” to the heavenly crush of final track “Howling At The Clouds,” Evaporate conjures stunning soundscapes at every turn. Captured in Argyll, Scotland, the album shimmers with a dark, gothic grace, delicate, and brutal in equal measure.
As a precursor to its release, today Cvlt Nation offers up the poignant sounds of “Soveraine” for public feasting, calling it, “a song that lifts the listener from their mundane state of being, transcending stale reality into a world of mist and luminescence.”
“Writing ‘Soveraine’ was like entering new territory for us and a big deviation from our last album,” notes Heaton of the weighty track. “It was born from an improvisation with just cello and vocals but turned into the type of song we had wanted to write for a long time. We wanted to show restraint with the guitars and drums and instead layer in instruments to culminate in a subtle but powerful and atmospheric ending. The song centers around the theme of resentment and trying and failing to let go.”

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).
