about

BIR005

Rarely will you come across bands that seem so indulged in their world and their visions and that have the ambition to accomplish their goals to be different. miumi build their own world, and not just through music. miumi call themselves "multimedia-based", their live gigs are accompanied by films and pictures. Of course, their music alone works and creates pictures in the listener's head. A scenario that -in the beginning- sounds like a dark, wet cellar filled with vague intentions and feelings. What's the band up to? Are we safe? Yes we are. miumi's 30 minute trip "blips" is not a threat to mankind, still it's massive, wide and from time to time loud. At the same time it's dreamy and somehow peaceful. "Blips" gives us a slow start and throws in sprinkles of trip-hop and progressive elements. They take their time. All songs flow into one another what underlines the image of a closed world. Experimental post-rock, ambient. miumi know what they do, they know what they want. They even play the cello and the theremin. See parts of their DVD on www.miumi.org and the music will gain even more power. Sweeping images of live concerts, professional shootings of the band, atmospheric moments of clarity. The voice reminds of Thom Yorke, the electronics would fit to Massive Attack, the instrumental eruptions could come from yet not written Oceansize songs. This band has a lot of potential and plans, let's hope that they will soon be discovered from the underground. CD comes in beautiful hardcover package with built-in 10-page booklet.
