Mogwai - "Dry Fantasy"

Post-rock legends Mogwai will release their new record, As the Love Continues, on February 19, 2021. It comes exactly 25 years after the release of their debut single.

Mogwai are masters at creating dark, atmospheric music full of rich, lush textures that fit nicely into their heavy-soft-heavy style of post-rock. The band is capable of taking gentle melodies, treating them with subtle electronics, before erupting in reverb drench guitar swells. For their first full length album since 2017, the band hasn't changed much in terms of style and this time they've brought Atticus Ross and Colin Stetson along for some additional muscle on various tracks. The first single from the album, "Dry Fantasy," is one that features more of their bristling electronic moments and less the storming rush of impending doom.
