Múm – Dancing Behind My Eyelids
Headphones can be essential, they bring isolation. They bring a song down to an intimate dialogue between artist and audience. They let you play Múm as loud as they go, so loud that activity beyond acute awareness of music is possible. Music can nurture the individual or rally the crowd, here it’s making a fuss over you, just you. The mediation between the percussive glitches and smooth, underwater jetstream like melodies is hugely compelling. There is some kind of adrenaline that runs through this song getting you on your feet, thinking hard, visualising, typing faster, spreading the word. Enjoy this.
