Single Review
Mogwai - BatcatMogwai - Batcat

Pretty much everyone should of come across a Mogwai track in their time, even if they don’t know it, the band have released 5 full length albums with their 6th full length album 'The Hawk Is Howling' being released in the middle of September, the band have also had so many of their songs featured on many different films, TV shows and computer games and this will be the place you have come across a Mogwai song without realising it.

Mogwai are well known for their atmospheric sounds, and this is why their music has been featured on so many films, as their music has the perfect feel for certain situations in movies, for example if you were watching a horror movie with the killer chasing some innocent victim then a piece of Mogwai music would perfectly fit the scene as most of their music is big, bold and atmospheric.

The new Mogwai single is 'Batcat', it runs for over 5 minutes and is such a interesting listen, the whole feel of the song is quite echoey, with really distorted guitar sounds firing off every now and again, the song sticks to the same formula that Mogwai have always stuck to, they know what they want their music to sound like and they know how to get great results and 'Batcat' is one of those great results. The video for 'Batcat' is just as good as the actual song with the way that it’s dark and has a horror theme running through it.

Mogwai are still as good as they ever was, this is their comeback single but to be honest they haven’t really ever left the music scene as when they aren’t busy making new albums they are busy playing shows or contributing to the next big film soundtrack.
