Myohwar - 'Floodsong' | @myohwarmusic @TheAandRDept

Masterfully reconciled polyrhythms and intriguing layers of rock instrumentation instruct the ear to receive a genuinely new aesthetjc in ambient music.” - The Akademia on Myohwar's “The Stillwater Skies”

Conceived in a small yet intimate bedroom studio towards the end of 2015 and drawing influence from the likes of Pink Floyd, Tame Impala and Mogwai, Myohwar has begun to stretch its geometrically incorrect, psychedelic tentacles out to grasp at the minds and ears of innocent neighbours and radio stations the world over. An instrumental journey into Myowhar’s heavy ambient world, the latest single, ‘Floodsong’, lives up to its name by flooding the listener with an entrancing sonic atmosphere ever evolving around a solid, electrifying pulse.

“I stumbled across the theme of this song on a somewhat stormy day, my vision was to capture the brooding feeling of the intensifying rain and the explosive nature of the distant thunder,” says Jordan, creator of Myohwar project.

While the music is predominately guitar based, the project contains an eccentric mix of instrumental styles and sounds ranging from Rock and Heavy Metal musings to Eastern, Shoegaze and Improvisation akin to free form and Jazz styles of music. The polyrhythmic undercurrents, wrapped in layers of hypnotic, ambient textures and dreamy electronic soundscapes are full of surprise and near impossible to mark down to any traditional genre of music out today.

Myohwar is set to commence work on a debut EP scheduled for release later this year, with plans of introducing a live show in support. Until then, you can catch Myohwar's music on Soundcloud, Reverbnation and Facebook.

Floodsong' was recorded in its entirety in the bedroom studio of the musical projects brainchild Jordan Roth. It was mixed by Steven Kronberger at Foxhole Studios, Perth, and mastered by Simon Struthers of Forensic Audio Mastering.

“Floodsong” by MYOHWAR will be released 30th of September 2016
