Midnight Masses – Walk On Water

By Will Oliver, November 9th 2009 MP3

Midnight Masses are a band that I have just been introduced to thanks to a press email.

They are Brooklyn band that have impressed me greatly in a short period of time. I have only heard the song “Walk On Water” but what a song it is! It is beautifully arranged with haunting melodies and vocals. It is set to show up on their new EP, titled, Rapture Ready, I Gazed At The Body. The awesomely titled EP comes out laterthis winter. Record label Team Love partnered with the band for their EP’s release.

“Walk On Water” features TV On The Radio’s Jaleel Bunton, along with fellow TVOTR band-mate Gerard Smith who gets credit with the production duties on the EP. It is a wonderful song that deserves to be played to warm you up on the coldest winter night. I can already envision “Walk On Water” on many winter playlists alongside Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens.

Their EP drops on 12/8, with a vinyl release following on 12/15. It will available at their merch store soon. In the meantime, go buy some other merch from them! If your in the NYC area this week they are playing two shows. Dates are posted below! :

11-10 New York, NY – Pianos (w/Mon Khmer)

11-13 Brooklyn, NY – Brooklyn Bowl (w/Art Brut, Surfer Blood)
