Scottish progressive post-rock trio MIDAS FALL today unveils their newest single, “I Am Wrong.” The track comes by way of the band’s fifth studio album, Cold Waves Divide Us, set for release on March 8th worldwide via Monotreme Records.

For the follow-up to their critically lauded, 2018-released full-length, Evaporate, founding MIDAS FALL members Elizabeth Heaton and Rowan Burn are joined by Michael Hamilton. Cold Waves Divide Us sees the band at their most confidently visceral, each song moving beautifully between quiet and loud, gentle and crushing. “This album is a heavier and bigger experience than the last album,” notes Heaton. “We kept the atmospheric strings and ‘80s synths of Evaporate but wanted to add heavier layered elements, to represent more what we sound like live.”

The band’s latest single from the record, “I Am Wrong,” thunders along on pounding rhythmic drums swirling around heavy swathes of low and delicate melodic highs. The accompanying video by Stephen Alexander keeps pace with a highly kinetic performance by dancer Amber Dollin, who ricochets and contorts to the music against a nocturnal urban landscape.

Comments Heaton, “A lot of our music comes from a place of sadness and reflection, and takes its time to build and layer. ‘I Am Wrong’ comes from a much angrier place. We played around with this more aggressive sound using pounding drums and baritone guitars. Lyrically, it is about feeling trapped in a situation with someone where you never feel good enough, constantly criticized and like you can never win. When the self-doubt and insecurity turns to the realization that you are being bullied, the result is a pretty pissed off song.

“The video was filmed over the course of a night in Glasgow city center,” she continues. “It is a nod to the 1981 film Possession where a woman becomes possessed in a Metro station. We are big fans of this era of horror so we also wanted to integrate some Dario Argento-style FX to add to the drama of the song.”
