Scottish post-rock gremlins Mogwai returned last month with the excellently titled “Coolverine,” the first single from their upcoming full-length Every Country’s Sun. While that one found the band in meditative instrumental mode, new track “Party In The Dark” is probably the closest they’ve ever come to making a straight-ahead indie rock song, with vocals(!) and lyrics(!!) and everything. I like old-school guitar-freakout Mogwai as much as anyone, but this is a good look for them too, and you can check it out for yourself below.
Every Country’s Sun is out 9/1 via Rock Action/Temporary Residence. Pre-order it here.
