Moulettes

PRESS

 

“Divine harmonies…Orchestral folk at its very finest.” ***** Time Out

“The best music I heard at Latitude was by the Moulettes”  -The Independent

“Frontrunners of the new British acoustic scene thanks to their sophisticated, unpredictable approach” **** Robin Denselow, The Guardian

“Welcome to the world of prog folk… Moulettes are among the current leading UK practitioners of the sub-genre. They are like a cross between Pentangle and the Kronos Quartet, by way of Kate Bush and early Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett.” – Reuters.

Praise for ‘The Bears Revenge” : 

“This is what a modern folk album should sound like.” **** London Evening Standard

“…songwriting of rare depth and inventiveness, this is a mature, often inspired album.” **** Songlines

“This delicious music is played with acoustic virtuosity…Complex and beautiful…Intriguing and unique”  **** MOJO

The Band

Many Moulettes met and started playing music together when they were 15-17. After a couple of EPs and singles they released an acclaimed debut album on Balling The Jack/Sotones in 2010, which found its way on to several Best Of The Year lists. They also won an Innovation Award and best group from the prestigious Fatea roots-music website and got nominated for best band by the alternative Brit awards. Their charismatic,  idiosyncratic yet poppy brand of  progressive, psychedelic neo-classical folk rock  has enthralled crowds at many festivals as varied as Bestival, Glastonbury, End of the Road and Cropredy.

Now  Moulettes return with their third studio album, and their first for Navigator Records, ‘Constellations’ on June 2nd. Recorded in studios, church buildings, caves and bedrooms in Sussex and Wales  over 2013, the album features a host of guest performances from legends Arthur Brown (God of Hellfire) and Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed, David Bowie, War of The Worlds) and contemporaries Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), The Unthanks  and Emma Richardson (Band Of Skulls). Brighton dub troubadour Faye Houston, dubstep producer Mike Dennis (Dface) and many of Brighton’s finest players complete a supporting chamber orchestra cast that emphasises the band’s desire to blend musical styles and experiment with sound in a way that has been a hallmark of their recordings to date. Thus ‘Constellations’ crosses varied and expansive musical territory over its ten tracks. As cellist  and front singer  Hannah Miller notes,

“People can listen to Moulettes and hear Shostakovich, Miles Davis, Pentangle, Pink Floyd, Bjork and Skrillex. That is where we’ve all come from…everyone shares in over 80 years of recorded music history”.

‘Constellations’ contains the headrush pop folk of ‘Glorious Year’, the pyscho-drama of the title track and the noir trip hop of ‘Lady Vengeance’ in an opening salvo that is unlikely to be matched in scope by many, if any, albums released this year. An album criss-crossed with stories and imagery, ‘Constellations’ can accommodate the 20’s belle époque waltz of ‘The Night Is Young’, the progressive folk of ‘The Observatory’ and the death disco dub of album closer ‘Keep It As A Memory’ whilst remaining a cohesive piece that sparkles with inventiveness and creativity throughout.

Few bands have the scope of Moulettes. Containing a mix of self taught and classically trained members who have shared the stage and studio with the likes of Seasick Steve, John Paul Jones, Nick Cave, Mick Jagger, Dave Gilmour, Gentle Giant, Paloma Faith, Bonobo, Paul Heaton of The Beautiful South, Liz Green, Ríoghnach Connolly, Laura Hockenhull, Matt Menefee (Cadillac Sky/Chess boxer) and many more.

Their significant initial period was spent playing live and promoting the Den Of Iniquity nights in London that brought a host of indie, folk, prog and psychedelic bands together.  After seven years of being a live band it was only in 2009 that their eponymous debut was released. Ex-Moulette Ted Dwane, now of Mumford & Sons returned to the fold in summer 2011 to help record the band’s second album, The Bear’s Revenge. Having constantly been on the road for four years,   Moulettes continue their touring with a new album throughout April and May prior to a host of summer festival dates.

‘Constellations’ is released by Proper Music Group on June 2nd.
