Mogwai's 'Get To France' Is Simple, Piano-Driven Beauty

Well, this is different. Mogwai released a track off their forthcoming EP, Earth Division, that has none of the distorted instrumentalism we've come to expect from the band. On "Get to France," the first track off the EP, the band goes for a more cinematic, piano-driven change of pace -- we love it when bands surprise us like this.

This gorgeous ditty follows just a few simple chords and rocks back and forth on them. It's the kind of track that makes you want to stop everything to listen, breathe… and do as its title instructs.

LISTEN to 'Get to France':

Earth Division is set to release Sept. 13 on Sub Pop for North America.
