LP & CD. King Midas is the latest addition to Fysisk Format's line of artful pop music, alongside Nils Bech and Pow Pow. King Midas have remained an enigmatic and evasive presence on the landscape of Norwegian music since the early nineties, with a string of highly-celebrated releases, exploring genres ranging from art-pop (with 1999's 'Scandinavia') to classic glam-rock (with 2007 release 'Sorry') and we're endlessly proud to present their grand opus: 'Rosso' Breaking a six year silence, 'Rosso' continues King Midas' trademark, atypical sound. Untouched by today's current musical fads, 'Rosso' is an individual beast - dark, gritty and raw - which shifts between brooding soundscapes in the haunting opening track, 'A Ship Glides Through The Nigh', to the infectious synth-hooks of alt-pop gem, 'Snow', which was premiered on Stuart Maconie's BBC Radio 6 Music show. The album was recorded over a long and turbulent six year period, mixed by New York's Matthew Weiss who has effectively pulled the many strands of King Midas' complex record together - allowing its seemingly alien parts to fall into perfect place alongside each other. Inspired by feelings of post-industrial emptiness and the existential agony present in the works of Norwegian artists, Edvard Munch and Knut Hamsun. 'Rosso' is both an intensely personal record and one forged from Norway's complex, collective history - which only adds to the album's intrigue. Having set their home country alight with their inimitable sound, King Midas have the rest of the world fully in their sites, making 'Rosso' one of 2014's most exciting albums from one of Scandanavia's most captivating exports.
