Atlanta-based pop/rock band, glimmers have released their new single, “Midas Touch,” today via Common Ground Collective. The upbeat pop/rock vibe of the track perfectly juxtaposes the melancholy lyrics as they reflect on how we can self-sabotage a relationship. The band also released the music video for the track, the second in a collection of cinematic music videos that follow the journey of finding yourself as you go through the ups and downs of a relationship. Watch it now below.
About the song, lead singer, Maggie Schneider says, “‘Midas Touch’ was a really fun track to record. While this is probably the most simplistic arrangement, we wanted it to have that fun pop/rock vibe. I wrote this song with Nick Pena (lostbody) about the idea of self-sabotage. It’s about being wildly into someone, but continuing to want more and more out of the relationship. Thus, bridges begin to burn, and everything starts falling apart. The myth of King Midas is all about being happy with what you have, and this song is an homage to the story.”
“Midas Touch” follows the band’s previous singles, “Dreaming” and “Scared to Lose,” shared earlier this year.
The band is currently gearing up to head out on their Southwest Dreaming Tour this fall. The tour kicked off with a hometown show in Atlanta, GA at Vinyl on November 11th, where they opened for The Dangerous Summer.
