The new single is taken from forthcoming new album, Atomic

Following their first effort from their forthcoming album, Mogwai have revealed another instalment: Ether.

The album is made up of reworked versions of the music the Glaswegian band scored for Mark Cousin’s acclaimed BBC4 documentary Atomic: Living In Dread.

Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite says: “Mark’s film captures both the horror and beauty of the atomic age. Ever since we went to Hiroshima this has been a subject very close to us. Ether is the first song on the album and soundtracks the opening and most optimistic part of the film. We tried to mirror that with the music. The soundtrack is one of the most intense and fulfilling projects we’ve taken on as a band, and one that i’m extremely proud of.”

Atomic will be available digitally via Temporary Residence on 1 April. Listen to Ether below.
