Mogwai talk us through their most ambitious album yet
After exploding into the public consciousness once again with last year’s Atomic soundtrack, Mogwai are back with dazzling new record Every Country’s Sun. They tell us more
Mogwai’s current purple patch looks as if it could become their defining era – and after 22 years together, the mainly instrumental post‑rock Glaswegians are ready to enjoy it. But they don’t really have time to sit back and reflect on their recent achievements because there are so many more to be worked on in the months ahead.
Their ninth studio album, Every Country’s Sun, arrives on September 1. And the work is likely to be heard by many fresh ears as a result of 2016 soundtrack album Atomic, which appears to have settled in the minds of many just how powerful and provocative Mogwai are.
