ORGAN THING: Paris-based dark post-rock band Bank Myna have just released a rather fine single ahead of the promise of their February album…

Organ Thing of The Day – Bank Myna, a new name to us, a promising start in terms of a first single from a new album – “We are glad to announce the release of ‘VOLAVERUNT‘, the debut album of Parisian band BANK MYNA. It will be released on vinyl & digital on February 25, 2022 by 5 labels (Araki records, A la dérive records (CA), Stellar Frequencies, Duality records, Cold Dark Matter records)”.

The first single “Aurora (Vi ska sova)” came out yesterday, here it is

Paris-based band initiated in 2013, Bank Myna is the architect of a unique universe where dark post-rock, drone, sound experiments and doom-like incursions mingle.

Among a mystical voice and dronian soundscapes, Bank Myna’s music offers free structures within which the sounds are ample, deep and the play on textures permanent. Ecstatic vocals lead the way to slow movements before letting the sound space tear up under bass and guitar feedbacks.Progressive, intense, torn between shadow and light, the Parisian ensemble likes to give breadth and power to its compositions in an abrasive and instinctive live act, oscillating from flutterings imposed by drone sounds to dazzling noise and heavy rock explosions.

Deeply inspired by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Anna Von Hausswolff, Big Brave, or even Swans, the band completes its instrumentation with a violin and experimental devices (clock bells, noise boxes …) in order to give new sounds and atmosphere to its long improvised ambient tracks. This work results in an organized chaos where daydreaming and distorted sounds alternate, laying the foundations for VOLAVERUNT, a monochrome album, composed in one go and based on a single soundtrack.

The first single is a rather beautiful taste, we’ll see what else they have in the new year. The singhle is up on Bandcamp


More via their Facebook, more from us in terms of the album later…
