Mogwai share hopeful new song “Ether” — listen

on February 08, 2016, 10:30am

Next month, Mogwai will put out Atomic, a reworking of their soundtrack to the BBC documentary Storyville – Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise. Due out through Rock Action Records/Temporary Residence Ltd., the 10-track collection is previewed this week with “Ether”.

The album’s opening number is a glimmering, uplifting composition, its brass heralding that something new, hopeful is on the way. “‘Ether’ is the first song on the album and soundtracks the opening and most optimistic part of the film,” Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite explained in a statement. “We tried to mirror that with the music.”

Stream it below.

For more of Atomic, check out lead single “U-235”. The album will be available digitally on April 1st. A physical CD and double vinyl release will follow on June 17th.
