Mi’ens’ Kill Rock Stars debut album, Future Child, was just released last Friday. To support the release the band has launched a video for “Charge Dodger.” It is a full on noisy, get weird and fuzzed-out type of track.
The video is a ride through a post-pandemic urban core, with a dig at slaves to consumerism and a subplot of alien abduction, all to the beat of backwards drums. Simmering undercurrents build to the frantically abrasive buzz-saw finale, with punctuated and visceral beats, jagged, discordant guitar lines and experimental noisy Moog. Layers crescendo to an explosive, climax of feedback, screeches and sonic aggression, with icy vocals floating upwards as they drift to space.
Mi’ens is math rock. Noise rock. Experimental. Sparkelpop – with Kim Glennie on guitar/loops/Moog and Evan Heggen with the polyrhythmic blastbeats on drums. They have created an entire new world with Future Child so for sure they are something fresh in 2020!
