Watch Explosions in the Sky Transcend Coachella 2012
Explosions in the Sky are known for their cathartic, all-instrumental guitar orchestras. They make the kind of music that could soundtrack slow-moving projections of atoms spicing, elk running, UFOs streaking across the night sky, streams flowing into rivers flowing into lakes flowing into oceans. They are all about beats and bliss, tension and release. Dynamics. Propulsion. Invention. Creation. Evolution. String theory. Dancing with architecture.
Do you get the picture? In other words, arty post-rock.
Normally were supposed to expand a little more than this, but in honor of one of the few instrumental bands covered on this site, we’re going to just leave it at this. Just watch it — because, really, words don’t do their music justice.
