(Araki records, A la dérive records, Stellar Frequencies,
Duality records, Cold Dark Matter records)


Paris-based band initiated in 2013, Bank Myna is the architect of a unique universe where dark post-rock, drone, sound experiments and doom-like incursions mingle.
Among a mystical voice and dronian soundscapes, Bank Myna’s music offers free structures within which the sounds  are ample, deep and the play on textures permanent. Ecstatic vocals lead the way to slow movements before letting  the sound space tear up under bass and guitar feedbacks. 
Progressive, intense, torn between shadow and light, the Parisian ensemble likes to give breadth and power to its  compositions in an abrasive and instinctive live act, oscillating from flutterings imposed by drone sounds to dazzling  noise and heavy rock explosions. 

Debut album: VOLAVERUNT

After the release of a couple of EPs highlighted by college radios in the USA, Bank Myna decided in 2019 to take  advantage of its new trio configuration to explore its most drone facet and experiment with sounds. Deeply inspired by Godspeed You!Black Emperor, Anna Von Hausswolff, Big Brave, or even Swans, the band completes its instrumentation  with a violin and experimental devices (clock bells, noise boxes …) in order to give new sounds and atmosphere to its  long improvised ambient tracks. This work results in an organized chaos where daydreaming and distorted sounds  alternate, laying the foundations for VOLAVERUNT, a monochrome album, composed in one go and based on a single  soundtrack. 
During the composition of the album, the band discovers a strange aesthetic resonance with several Goya’s engravings and their mystical and tormented symbolism. Volaverunt (“They flew away”), a free figure of magnetic and bitter beauty, is gradually establishing itself as the album title. The five tracks offer slow and contemplative movements from which cathartic flights spout out, carried by rhythm patterns verging on ritualism.
