Barely into his teens, Matthew Doty began making music with childhood friend Jonny Pierce (of The Drums), resulting in a full-length album released by Columbia Records. At age twenty, he went on to co-found post-rock instrumental giants Saxon Shore with Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty), releasing three EPs, and two albums produced by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, Tame Impala, Flaming Lips.)
Originally a duo of Matthew Doty (guitar/bass/synth) and Phil Stancil (vocals/guitar/bass), Midnight Faces ‘Heavenly Bodies ’ LP was the first to feature drummer Paul Doyle as a full-fledged collaborator and the thrilling expansion of a sound begun on 2013’s ‘Fornication’ LP. For that album – Midnight Faces’ debut – Stancil brought vocals to Doty’s existing songs; 2014’s ‘The Fire Is Gone’ saw a more thorough partnership emerge between the two musicians, and praise for the record flowed from outlets including SPIN, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, NYLON, AV CLUB, CONAN and more. CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND premiered a full album stream of ‘Heavenly Bodies’, followed by a performance on Seattle’s KEXP. Fred Falke- who is known for a wide array of indelible remixes for artists like Hot Chip, Grizzly Bear, The Whitest Boy Alive, and more – also remixed their first single, “Heavenly Bodies.” Listen at EARMILK.
