Stream Origins in its entirety

Over the last decade, GIAA has become known as one of the world’s most intense, musically-and visually-inventive post rock bands around, and their 7th album Origins further cements their place alongside post-rock’s elite bands like Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky and Sigur Ros.

Comprised of a dozen tracks, Origins is the soundtrack to one of the most beautiful movies that has never been made.  The music soars over peaks and valleys of sonic bliss, invoking a range of emotions throughout the course of the record.  From the darkening skies of the epic post-apocalyptic score “Reverse World” and the piano-led reverie of “Autumn Song” to the groove-laden dreams of “Spiral Code” and the rhapsodic, unapologetically melodic fever of “Signal Rays” Origins flows seamlessly one track to the next creating a unique and emotional experience for listeners.

GIAA will tour Europe this fall and are expected to return to the U.S. for a headlining run in 2014.
