Party in the Dark is the second track to be made available from Mogwai's forthcoming album, Every Country's Sun. The track combines a post punk blueprint with expansive space rock and has been described by Dazed as "a New Order-nodding melodic joy." This 7" single backs it with an exclusive new cut, Eternal Panther.
The band recently debuted Every Country's Sun in its entirety in a triumphant surprise show at this year's Primavera Sound, Barcelona. In a live review, The Quietus wrote: "... the material bounds with purpose and spirit, depth and intelligence, quiet triumph and (particularly toward the end) emphatic weight, promising a record of cleverly-woven instrumentalism that slays and sates in remarkable unison."
