1 Black Habitairplay
MIEN (pronounced Meen) releases new single ‘Black Habit’ via Rocket Recordings on 26th January taken from their forthcoming album (due April 2018). Inhabiting a modern-day realm in which what is termed ‘psych’ is all-too often a codified and predicable incarnation entirely at odds with the original free-flowing of psychedelia, it can be a struggle to find a band who can marry the essence of its inception with an adventurous mindset. MIEN is a transatlantic four-way collision of considerable force involving luminaries who have forged a reputation for head-spinning audial magik in their own right. Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone) joined forces with Alex Mass (Black Angels), John Mark Lapham (The Earlies) and Tom Furse (The Horrors) and the four planets of the MIEN universe aligned. Thirteen years and several traversals of the globe by both plane and audio-file later, sees this quartet transcending their origins whilst maintaining a cohesive unity borne of a desire of outward exploration.
