By Alex HudsonHaving thoroughly freaked us out with last year's self-titled album, shadow-lurking electro-noise duo MYTHS are back with an ambitious new project: a live electronica opera called The Golden Dawn, which they will premiere at Vancouver's World Art Centre at SFU Woodwards on January 28.
A Facebook event describes the show like this: "Pulling from far-reaching influences such as ballet and improvised dance, our obsession with the unknown, and the cycles of ancient mythology, The Golden Dawn weaves a story through their extended and remixed set of songs, noise improvisations and distorted narratives."
On their website, the band added, "This will be a special one-of-a-kind show that will play like a theatre piece. We'll have dancers, many new costumes, new visuals, all set to narrative and noise. If you heard us talking about our 'pop opera', this is it."
Tickets for the event are $12 in advance ($15 at the door) and can be purchased here.
In case you were wondering, the Golden Dawn were a British magical order. Read about them here. In other words, it doesn't look like these ladies have grown any less infatuated with the occult.
