MU! has been part recorded in the same old soviet radio station where the band recorded their last album Tschak! part in a professional studio and then part at home. This was to ensure the best capture of Gnoomes live assault. The results brim with a magnitude and sense of coherence that belies some of the environment it was created in. Fuzz-driven guitars shift in engulfing waves, resembling shoegaze giants at their most ferocious, whilst elsewhere layered vocals stack on top of one another, weaving between pristine melody and augmented discordance. Whilst the glacial electronics and coldwave tendencies that soaked much of their previous album may be more absent here, this record pulses with an electronic tinge that bubbles more subtly under the surface of immersive guitars.

The band are taking MU! on the road around the UK, starting with a very special show in their home city of Perm where the band are hosting label mates Gum Takes Tooth and Mamuthones, plus others at Gnoomes Fest 2019
