Manchester Orchestra A Black Mile To The Surface
Release Date: July 28, 2017
Label: Loma Vista
A Black Mile To The Surface is a bold record of vision and purpose, inspired by and dwelling in a sensory and imaginative experience. It’s a reinvention of sorts, both musically and personally - a sort of cosmic worldview shift. But in the end, the record’s themes are universal. Inspired by their experience creating the score for the film Swiss Army Man (a Sundance hit - New York Times-lauded “marvelously melancholic music”), they seized the chance to rethink Manchester Orchestra’s typical methods of working.
