Taken from forthcoming album ‘Evaporate’. Scottish duo Midas Fall (Elizabeth Heaton and Rowan Burn) release their fourth album, ‘Evaporate’, on 27 April.
“Bruise Pusher”, the opening track from the album, is a visceral display of ferocious beauty which alternates between Elizabeth Heaton’s delicate vocals and a savage cacophony of guitar, drums and synths, to create a disconcerting atmosphere.
“Bruise Pusher is about living in a volatile environment, constantly anticipating the underlying tension erupting into something hideous and unsettlingly familiar”, says Heaton. “The song started with just a simple piano melody, so to develop the track we used a lot of guitars with rumbling, saturated reverbs and gradually added heavy synths to create textured, expansive choruses.”
Produced and recorded by Elizabeth Heaton, ‘Evaporate’ shimmers with a dark, gothic grace, conjuring stunning soundscapes at every turn. The album 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).
Pre-orders of the album are available from the Monotreme Records web shop: http://monotremerecords.limitedrun.com/products/610709-midas-fall-evaporate-album-cd-180g-vinyl-lp-or-digital-download-pre-order

‘Midas Fall effectively carry the cinematic air of bands like Oceansize and Aereogramme, but their most striking feature lies in Elizabeth Heaton’s dramatic, impassioned vocal performances. A welcome addition to an increasingly complex post-rock map’ – The Skinny
‘Bridges prog and dreampop in a way that hasn’t quite been done this way before…a splendid album’ – Pop Matters
‘Amidst the atmosphere and drones, there is a poetry, with a sad voice juxtaposed. The album closes the album with a bang, with a note that resonates even after the music has stopped’ – The 405
