Track Of The Day: Midlake - 'Antiphon'

There's something dramatically beautiful about this fantastic new Midlake track, which also bears shades of 60's psychedelica. The album from which this lovely title track is taken is released on November 4. After three albums, the band's latest full length sees a notable line up change. In late 2012, lead vocalist and songwriter Tim Smith announced he was leaving the group to form a new project called Harp. Rather than divide the recorded material among the two bands, Midlake abandoned the two years' worth of recordings with Smith and began again from scratch, writing and recording a new full-length album in just six months. In a message on the band's website, Midlake acknowledged Tim Smith's departure, saying "we've pushed ourselves and challenged ourselves and feel that 'Antiphon' represents an ultimate genesis both musically and spiritually."
