Mono: beautiful post-rock from Japan
I’ve fallen in love with the music of Mono, a Japanese post-rock band. Their beautiful and intricate compositions, filled with layered guitar melodies, make me drift. Listening to their music brings me some 10/12 years back, when I started listening to post-rock via the brilliant Sigur Rós. It was a total discovery for me, and Mono are bringing that sense of new that I felt with the first impressions of Ágætis byrjun. Below is Battle to Heaven, my favourite song from their latest release Hymn to the Immortal Wind. I hope you’ll enjoy.
