"A spectacularly woven tapestry" – The405 say some words on MIEN's Earth Moon

They say:

Psych rock amalgamation MIEN release explorative new track 'Earth Moon'
The second single from the band featuring members of The Black Angels, The Horrors, Elephant Stone and The Earlies

MIEN is a new psych-rock outfit that comprises The Black Angel’s Alex Maas, The Horrors' Tom Furse, Elephant Stone’s Rishi Dhir and The Earlies’ John-Mark Lapham, and while the (rightfully) maligned term "supergroup" would probably be an oversatement here, there is no doubt that the different elements brought by each of the members certainly adds up to a compelling whole.

This week MIEN have released their second single, 'Earth Moon'. The track takes sounds from all over the globe, with sitars, maracas, sampled flutes and African percussion detectable beneath the Asian-tinged psych-rock. This comes together as a spectacularly woven tapestry, with plenty of momentum that keeps the song spinning in and out of different movements, while staying tightly knit as a spellbinding piece.
