“No lyrics. Just music. Explosive. Transcending. Music.”
“The truth about all Explosions in the Sky fans is that whether you’ve been listening to them for just a few weeks or for the better part of a decade (like me), we’ve all connected to the music in our own way.”
“if you play Explosions in the Sky loud enough, the process of hanging drywall can be a life-altering experience.”
The post on MoreThanMary pretty much sums up their music. I came across them because one of their song titles was used as a title for an episode for One Tree Hill: With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds & Tired Souls We Slept. I thought that this was one of the most beautiful lines I had ever heard. I tried to find out what it was from and when I found out it was a song I immediately YouTube-d it.
I went to the music shop and bought the two albums that they had: The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place and All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone.
Their music is purely instumental. Provoking. Explosive. Beautiful. “The Birth & Death Of The Day” really does give the idea of a journey.
Although the band’s music deviates from pop, Hrasky said that they have similar goals “like immediately grabbing your attention and getting to your emotions.” Rayani said, “We don’t consider ourselves post-rock at all; we consider ourselves a rock band.”
