Lush sonic patterns, bold basslines and austere beats are spun into musical threads, which are woven into sonic landscapes and shape narrative arcs. That is the approach to crafting music that is taken by Møuntain - a four-piece instrumental rock-outfit from Villach/Austria.
No less than storytellers, Møuntain take the the listener on a journey through their music. At times thrusting soundscapes as mighty as mountains at the listener, other times taking his hand and guiding him on tip-toes through a cabinet of wondrous things.
In trying to characterise the sound of Møuntain in more concrete terms, one has to go back to basic categories, as ascribing a genre to them generally fails. It will have to suffice to say: It can be loud, and it can be quiet. Things can get harsh and forbidding, and a few metres later resolve into something of a fragile beauty.
Dynamics are key.
