  • Mogwai - Travel Is Dangerous EP
Single title: Travel Is Dangerous EP
Artist: Mogwai
Label: Chrysalis

Mogwai are Scotland's most intriguing musical conundrum. Revered for vitriolic instrumentation and menacing climaxes, the band never really sustained its ferocious grip on a migrating music industry. But with the recent release of 'Mr Beast' Mogwai's petrifying roar once more reverberates throughout the streets of Glasgow. The 'Travel Is Dangerous' EP offers an exhilarating insight into the tumultuous stridency of this dysfunctional collective. Exuding looping introversion and threatening paranoia, this five-track blast of discordant venom blisters the ears with incoherent melancholy. Lacking any safety, this is a disturbing journey deep in to the heart of this furiously blood-lusting group. [Billy Hamilton]

This EP is out now.
