UK alt-post-progressive rock band Midas Fall follow up their second album, Wildernessʼ, with the release of a new 3-track EP. ʻFluorescent Lightsʼ on the 19th of November.
The EP showcases all of the elements that fans of Midas Fall have come to know and love: the combination of thundering melodic rock guitar with electronic flourishes and Elizabeth Heatonʼs soaring melancholic vocals in ʼLowʼ, the delicate confessional intimacy of ʻTracksʼand the epically ascending pop of title track ʻFluorescent Lightsʼ.
The EP will be available from all good digital retailers and also as a limited edition CD in printed card wallet from the Monotreme Records web shop.
"Wilderness" flows by seamlessly, impressive and skin-tingling, ‘Wilderness’ delivers, track by track, play by play and catapults the band well over the looming fear of that- one-album-band and sends them soaring to new heights.” – Rocking GR
“What was ‘Takk’ for Sigur Ros is ‘Wilderness’ to Midas Fall. Deeply emotional. 9/10” – Avopolis
“Midas Fall are excellent providers of chiming vocal led post-rock and deserve extra credit for steering clear of many of the genre's most notorious clichés. Never do they stray into the overlong territory that even legends such as Explosions in the Sky have failed to avoid in recent years, which, for a band still touring their debut album is even more impressive. The vocals are gorgeous and the propulsive rhythms and shimmering guitars make the band a genuinely wonderful way to start off the evening." - Subba Cultcha (Live review at the Garage, April 2012)
"Haunting and tender, melodious and powerful, As Our Blood Separates is an aqueous compilation that showcases Midas Fall’s ability to completely infiltrate the listener...so artfully put together you can tell no note or sound was left unexamined...fluid and moving, it will stay with you long after the echo of its final piano chord has faded." - Substream Magazine (USA)
"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
"Listening to the album is an intentionally dark experience but there’s no sense of contrivance or insincerity and there’s a lot to admire in the complexity of song structure and harmony. ‘My Radio Star’ and ‘Nautical Song’ in particular, are stunningly accomplished and demonstrate hallmarks of the band’s sound. Eleven...is an overwhelmingly enjoyable and notably competent debut and shows a band with an intricate understanding of their own style. The challenge will be to go even better than this in future." - 9/10, Is This Music?
