Hope For A Mourning

This 7-piece collaboration traverse genre distinctions to create their own unique sound - described by one reviewer as; a sombre, subtle and slow-to-grow opus that virtually exudes a cinematic aura others of their kind often only allude to.

NZ's Mice on Stilts 2013 debut EP, An Ocean Held Me was met with high praise from listeners and reviewers alike. Founded on ideas of darkness, empathy and catharsis, these themes extend into their latestalbum, Hope For A Mourning, which capitalises on the diverse range of instruments mastered by these seven skilled musicians.

Single Khandallah is a great example of the band's ability to conjure eerie ambient soundscapes building to transcendental heights. Lauded for their stirring presence as a live band, Mice On Stilts have reached beyond the confines of music and collaborated with local artists, photographers, writers and designers to create an art book (complete with download code and special bookmark) to accompany the new album, the contents within a direct response to the engaging lyrics and emotional scope of Hope For a Mourning.
