“Please don't flow this fast
You hold a little hum
I'll bottle sounds of me for you”
“We Have a Map of the Piano” embraces the listener like a warm blanket. Múm mixes warm synths and found acoustics to sculpt a soundscape which makes the listener feel safe, awake, alive, and renewed. Stated in its name, this song feels like taking a nap inside of a familiar piano; safe and secure in texture and knowledge of one’s setting and emotionally satiated in outer and inner novelty. Inside múm’s vocals is a sense of wonder and gratefulness for the world, a caress from the value of collective past, present, and future nostalgia and love. Almost perfectly audible, the listener feels as a child and as a lover, their eyes are rubbed open to a bright, welcoming sunshine. The lyrics speak to the state that the listener is induced into, and inquires that they may take a moment to look around and breathe; to feel the quiet ecstasy of intimate, lazy moments and days.
Múm produces some of the warmest sounds that I know of, I highly recommend this song and their whole album “Finally We Are No One”, which is as cathartic and touching as the title implies. As an ambient indietronica band, múm will neutralize and massage your logic and emotions.
“Please don't flow so fast
You little mountain noise
I'll close my eyes and bite your tongue”
