“Mogwai are a band with the power to move people– emotionally as well as viscerally.” -Pitchfork, 9.2 Score, Young Team
“Every band should mature like Mogwai: still inventive, still challenging themselves and still insanely loud. “ - Rolling Stone
“Masters at building tension upon tension then gently letting it go, their cyclical instrumentals are
both sorrowful and consoling.” -Guardian
Finally, Mogwai are coming to Korea! After years of enticing by SUPER COLOR SUPER and Korean labels, the Scottish post-rock mega titans make their much-anticipated first debut appearance this November. The post-rock titans are known for being at times misty, ethereal, and haunting, and others times explosive, apocalyptic, riding tight lines between motion and stillness.
Being named after the mythical creature of Steven Spielberg’s monster movie Gremlins, Mogwai’s jet-engine loudness also holds a light-heartedness and sly humor, such as their cleverly-titled latest album Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will (2011). There’s a schizophrenia in their sound which allows them to share the bill with the likes of Aphex Twin, just as easily as with The Cure, while still maintaining their own broody splendour.
Mogwai have built themselves up as one of the quintessential bands for their genres. While they remain faithful to the post-rock aesthetic they pioneered in the 90s, they are unshackled by genre – crossing over into motorik, metal, shoegaze, mathrock, and electronica. Mogwai takes their music seriously, but never loses the verve so central to the act of creation–the knowing grin that comes from messing around, stirring up mischief, and setting things on fire. The concert will feature large scale film projections during their set.
