Published Apr 13, 2015Toronto six-piece Mune are gearing up to unleash their debut full-length Falling Through on June 2 via Culvert Music. But before it arrives, Exclaim! has got an exclusive stream of upcoming album cut "Khazé."
The record's bed tracks were laid down with Josh Korody (Beliefs, Wish) at Candle Recording and with Max Fruchtman at Rouge Valley Studios in the band's hometown back in 2013. Since then, the group did some DIY overdubbing in between homes and rehearsal spaces, before Emilio Guim mixed the final album.
Falling Through aims to capture the band's "dark textures, floating melodies, and lush atmospheres," and "Khazé" got more than its share of all three.
"Khazé' was written about the experience of returning to Montreal for the first time since spending a memorable weekend there with a then significant other," according to a statement from the band. "A lot of memories resurfaced, mostly pertaining to the relationship's collapse. The song is written as a conversation with that memory, or rather the ghost of that memory."
Rich, layered guitars and shimmering synths provide the backdrop for hazy lead vocals and airy harmonies, resulting in a sparkling shoegaze-esque pop gem. You can give it its first spin in the player below.
