Bio

Brisbane 4 piece instrumentalists Mass Migration formed in mid 2006,brought together by the mutual admiration of post rock and instrumental bands like Mogwai,Dianogah,Neu! and Sigur Ros and inspired by the fertile Brisbane local music scene. To date, the band have shared the stage with a diverse range of local and interstate outfits including The Seabellies,Del Toro,Turnpike,Ponyloaf ,Fickle Beasts,Restream and many more. Mass Migration’s debut self titled ep captures the band’s many moods and textures, from the bleeding feedback and massive distortion of “Ill at ease”,to the shoegazing “Green” and “Sepia”… Mass Migration's Debut self titled ep is out now.....

Stumbled across this little gem just now. You've got a light touch on this track that's really striking me. I hope you guys are still playing around- I know this one's an oldy, would love to hear new stuff if you've got it too!

Beautiful! I disagree that this is shoegaze (no catchy pop melodies that are washed under walls of distortion and fuzz). But its still great (definately epic), but that's the problem with trying to classify your own music: it can't really be done. The second half doesn't really follow on from the first half though. I'd like to hear more of your piano in this one like in Sepi...
