Track of the Day #125: Mogwai – U-235

Posted by Neil Wilson

Mogwai - U-235

Mogwai have a great history of soundtracks.  From 2006’s Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, to 2012’s Les Revenants, their music has fitted well with the telling of visual stories.  Last year the band supplied the music to a BBC documentary Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise, all about the Nuclear Age.

Now the band have reworked the music from the documentary to be released on a new album called Atomic.  Coming up via RockAction Records on the 1st April, this track U-235 is the first cut from it.  An inspiring piece, that would sound easily at home in the studios of Kraftwerk during the ’70’s, it’s an eerie and ominous sound symbolic of the scientific beauty but devastating destruction of nuclear power.
