IF you’ve been sleeping on Midnight Ambulance, then we suggest you tune into their new single ‘Rust’ and see what all the fuss is about.

The Scottish alt-rock duo, comprised of old friends Fraser and Amelia, have upped the ante with each release and their third single is perhaps their most impressive to date.

Dark and moody, ‘Rust’ is a big rocker of a tune – Amelia’s cool vocals are surrounded by a hefty, tempestuous instrumental, full of big riffs and atmospheric melodies.

The band say “‘Rust’, describes the difficulties of being trapped in a failing relationship. Written during lockdown, the song explores parallels in the feelings of isolation and claustrophobia experienced both in lockdown and in destructive partnerships.”

With a couple of dates lined up alongside Fatherson next week, we’re keen to see what comes next.

Listen below.
