“‘Party In The Dark’ is the closest thing to an indie pop song you’ll hear from Mogwai, a group known more for its epic, instrumental rock. The song includes vocals from front man Stuart Braithwaite and was produced by Dave Fridmann, a founding member of Mercury Rev also known for his work with Weezer, The Flaming Lips, Spoon and more.
