Primavera Sound Barcelona

Primavera with Apple Music


We warned you: “Expect the unexpected”. And Mogwai did it in 2017 when they made a surprise appearance in the Parc del Fòrum to play Every Country’s Sun for the very first time. And in 2018, the gloriously unexpected is for them to come back. These Scots have enjoyed many Party in the Dark in Barcelona, almost as many as Shellac with whom they overlapped last year. Over the past 365 days we have been able to mull over those 11 new tracks that go beyond rock, songs which breathe in the landscapes and exhale the epic soundtracks by these would-be brutes. It only seems fair to reserve them a slot now that we have done our homework. And although this time we know that they are playing, we’ll always expect the unexpected from them.
