Explosions In The Sky – The Only Moment We Were Alone

It’s going to be something alright. Those mysterious Texan instrumentalists Explosions In The Sky play Dublin’s Tripod tomorrow night and my ears are waxing lyrical at the prospect (there’s a joke in there somewhere). EITS are undoubtedly post-rock’s kingpins having overtaken Mogwai as the Scottish collective increasingly lose their focus. Last year’s ‘All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone’ was a sprawling affair that lacked the finesse of its predecessor ‘The Earth Is A Not A Cold Dead Place’ but still managed to wring several dozen damp beach towels worth of emotion from the hearts of the listener. EITS push their message through arching crescendo’s of white noise, crystallised valley’s of jangling chords and everything in between. An inspiring example can be heard via ‘The Only Moment We Were Alone’ from 2003 which should see you on the cusp of exhilaration only to fall back into old ways 2 minutes later as you struggle to prittstick the fragments of flesh you once called a heart. It’s going to be a rollercoaster night. KD
