With their two-decade long career and ten albums, the Scots are true instrumental post-rock veterans, masterfully combining mesmeric melodies with joyful crescendos and shattering flourishes.
Minor chord progressions slowly unfold, washing ashore like a gentle, sunny tide on the long beaches of the North. Then the sky darkens, cracking into raging distortions, unleashing powerful riffs and swarms of cymbals. And then, darkly beautiful quietness spreads again… These transitions between calm and intensity soon became the trademark of the combo formed in 1995 in Glasgow and inspired by shoegaze, Slint or Jesus and the Mary Chain. After two decades, Mogwai still play with the same insolent conviction, integrating their mesmerising melodies into a work of volume and violence. The latest album, As the Love Continues (2020), perpetuates the legend of these true superstars.
