UK-based quartet MIDASFALL have carved a distinctive and captivating sound, fusing elements of electronica, post-rock, shoegaze and alternative rock with progressive and gothic undertones to create taut, shimmering soundscapes led by the hauntingly melancholic vocals of Elizabeth Heaton. The eclectic collective -founding members Heaton and Rowan Burn (guitar, piano) with Steven Pellatt (drums/percussion/piano) and Chris Holland (bass) - has spent the past year composing the follow-up to their 2013-issued Wilderness full-length. Titled The Menagerie Inside, Midas Fall's third long player was captured live at Red Wall Studios, mastered by Seattle legendary engineer Ed Brooks (Pearl Jam, Caspian, Fleet Foxes et al) and offers up ten sprawling tracks of sonic enormity. From the sorrowing echo of wilting violins in "Counting Colours," to the emotionally gutting close of "Circus Performer," the forty-six-minute epic is as heavy sonically as it is cerebrally. An introspective journey through dark and light, The Menagerie Inside is at once graceful, urgent and star-gazingly compelling. Cascading riffs ebb, flow and surge into rich, ethereal piano crescendos, the weight of Heaton's delicate angelic resonance adding depth to her every echoing word. With The Menagerie Inside, Midas Fall manifests a sound and atmosphere that's organic, emotionally stirring and habitually awe-inspiring, further verifying the strength of their songcraft and musicianship, Vinyl is limited edition 180-gram vinyl LP in translucent purple with black splatter, with a free album CD and poster inside.
