Much like white noise, Mogwai has never been advocates to lyrics in their music. However, this instrumental of a celestial nature could not be more distant from the static that drives us crazy. The deliberately slow and asymmetrical drum beat resonates throughout while the effects-heavy guitars and keyboard slowly crescendo into life.
The five piece that make up Mogwai are undoubtedly talented and intelligent composers and ‘White Noise’ reflects this as they illustrate how simplicity can be alluring, especially when coupled with multiple layers. The track is beautifully serene, so unlike white noise.
