“Brilliant music to navigate life's chaos” – The Guardian (4*)
“Sounding ever more Mogwai, waiting for the world to catch up.” - The Evening Standard (4*)
"One might suspect that Mogwai, forever enthused by the binary options of extreme noize and mind-mashing calm, would’ve run out of steam by now. In a word: wrong.” - Mojo (4*)
“Alive, potent and enthralling as ever” - Uncut (8/10)
“The sound of a band renewed and a personality reasserted.” - Loud & Quiet (9/10)
“A break from the band’s soundtrack work, ironically, Every Country’s Sun sounds like a brilliant soundtrack in its own right” - Classic Rock (9/10)
"Brash, gritty, unpretentious, and thrillingly claustrophobic” - Pitchfork (7.6)
"Every Country’s Sun is an intent-drenched return to form” - The Line of Best Fit (9/10)
"Spacious, striking and completely stunning” - Clash (8/10)
"Several steps ahead of the pack” - The Quietus

The band, who headlined this year’s Festival No.6 and played the recent BBC 6 Music Live celebration in London alongside acts such as Robert Plant, Loyle Carner, Morrissey & Alt-J (marking 20 years since their first BBC Radio 1 John Peel Session), have also just released a new single, ‘Crossing The Road Material’, from their acclaimed Top 10 album ‘Every Country’s Sun’. A soaring and climatic anthem, ‘Crossing The Road Material’ was labelled, “A sublime motorik groove, with skyscraping crescendos” by Mojo, in their 4/5 review of the album.
In ‘Every Country’s Sun’, Mogwai have succeeded in distilling their trademark characteristics into a powerful 56 minutes, whilst pushing their sound in more directions than ever before. Described as, “Brilliant music to navigate life's chaos” by The Guardian and, “The sound of a band renewed and a personality reasserted” by Loud & Quiet, Every Country’s Sun is the highest charting record from Mogwai’s discography so far, reaching No.6 in the Official UK Albums Chart.
Mogwai will close the year as a headliner at the Sigur Ros curated festival Nogdur Og Nidur, which takes place 27-30 December in Iceland, and have also today announced that they will play next summer’s Roskilde Festival in Denmark.
