Hear This: Arthur Beatrice - Midland
Share This Article:
Fans of The XX enquire within. London four-piece Arthur Beatrice have emulated their predecessors with a baffling yet beautiful track that refuses to settle in a single genre. 'Midland' is dark, yet elegant, with a delicate piano-led introduction giving way to an intense crescendo. The video portrays a couple’s descent from harmony to chaos through dance. The visuals are graceful, dramatic and enigmatic, perfectly catching the mood of the track. If not for its stunning audio, the video for 'Midland' is worth watching just to witness the intensely choreographed fight. We just wish every breakup was this graceful.
