Comprised of The Black Angel’s Alex Maas, The Horror’s Tom Furse, Elephant Stone’s Rishi Dhir and The Earlies’ John-Mark Lapham, MIEN have announced their self-titled debut album will be released on Friday 6th April via Rocket Recordings.  It is a record that finds equal room for radiant groove-based propulsion and ambient dreamscapes alike – as comfortable with the murky hallucinogenic voyage of You Dreamt as the powerful widescreen sweep of (I’m Tired Of) Western Shouting.

MIEN has been a collaboration that has been in the works for well over ten years, and was based, initially at least, on a shared love for one song – the ‘classic sitar banger’ by the Association, Wantin’ Ain’t Gettin’.

Eventually, via yet another pass at the ill-starred Association cover, the four planets of the MIEN universe were to align, as a long-standing demo of John-Mark’s – originally based on a Beastie Boys sample – was passed from the cutting-room-floor through the hands of Rishi, Alex and Tom to undergo an alchemical process that startled all four – this was to become Black Habit, the second song on this debut.
