Drawing influence from artists such as Radiohead, Oceansize and Portishead, Edinburgh based alternative rock outfit Midas Fall create epic, melodic, atmospheric music with strong progressive and post rock undertones and haunting, melancholic vocals.

Following the release of debut EP ‘Century’, the band embarked on a UK tour and have since received airplay from BBC 6’s Tom Robinson as well as several regional stations.

2010 kicked off with bang when the band secured their first headline show at King Tuts with London band The Bookhouse Boys, followed by a support slot with Japanese post-rockers Mono at a packed-out Oran Mor.

“Fronted by inimitable Elizabeth Heaton, she surprises with a strong display of vocals, asserting her position throughout the album…the debut from this Edinburgh quintet remains an engrossing listen…” Rock Sound magazine

Midas Fall has crafted a great piece of art with Eleven. Return and Revert, and just like Edinburgh’s stunning architecture, the band’s music stands out like a beautiful landmark…captivating and eerie…a heartbreaking masterpiece…” Delusions of Adequacy

“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?
