MINOR VICTORIES – Slowdive, Mogwai & Editors members – Share New Single Ft. The Twilight Sad’s James Graham‏

Minor Victories – the indie supergroup comprised of Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Editors’ Justin Lockey and his brother James – will release their self-titled debut this summer, and today they share a stellar new track off of the record. Following the hauntingly cinematic “A Hundred Ropes” and the gorgeous shoegaze of “Folk Arp,” “Scattered Ashes (Song For Richard)” takes the band in a brighter direction and features James Graham of The Twilight Sad.

Produced and engineered by Justin, and featuring the likes of Mark Kozelek and James Graham from The Twilight Sad, Minor Victories will be released on June 3rd, 2016 via Fat Possum Records. What began as Justin’s desire to create an extreme noise EP topped off by a delicate female vocals, Minor Victories became a cinematic 10-track LP, masterfully crafted by four band members who had somehow never even all been in the same room together until after the album was completed. Far more than a side project for its members, this record unveils the real essence of what a group of talented individuals unshackled by convention can attain. Brought together by brief meetings, mutual acquaintances and overall serendipity, Minor Victories created this album together by swapping ideas, songs, fragments and finished recordings via broadband connections. This unusual process, combined with the members’ wide spectrum of musical tastes and experiences converging, ultimately led to something beyond the original vision of any of the contributors that pushes new boundaries and new sounds into uncharted waters.
