Miaou - Own Your Colours
Japanese post-rock trio Miaou will be releasing their fourth studio album, "The Day Will come Before Long," on September 8th, their first full length album in three years. The band have released two songs from the album as a preview of the album. "Lost Souls" features Radical Face frontman Ben Cooper on guest vocals, but the song that really grabs my attention is the fantastic "Own Your Colours."
"Own Your Colours" sits on the 'achingly beautiful' end of the post-rock spectrum, with the six minute instrumental track building up from it's surreal acoustic guitar/computer going haywire intro into a powerful, uplifting tour-de-force by its climax. Miaou's transcendal sound is definately not one of this earth, but what's wrong with that?
