Alt-folk outfit Moulettes are back with new single ‘Glorious Year’
”This clever Brighton band blend thrilling female harmony vocals with unexpected instrumentation” The Guardian
”It has been a unique year for Moulettes” says Oliver Austin, Moulettes’ drummer/ guitarist/ vocalist. With the release of their third album ‘Constellations’ and a fifth year of solid touring, the quintet’s profile has made leaps and bounds and new track ‘Glorious Year’ kicks off what they hope will, indeed, be a glorious year.
”Our 5th year of solid touring continues to facilitate the making of many new wonderful friends and fans. ‘Constellations’ (released in June) was truly a joy to make. It’s epic yet accessible and continues to be magical to play live. We were simply starstruck by the willingness of many of our favourite players wanting to get involved; some of whom we were able gig with : including Arthur Brown, Marcus Hamblett (Bears Den, Willy Mason), Emma Gatrill (Sons of Noel and Adrian), T S Idiot, Eliza Jaye, and Kate Young (Eliza Carthy)”
”For 2015, We don’t intend to stop and look forward to a full festival season with confirmed tours in Europe, Canada and the UK in the continued celebration of what we feel is our best record to date.”
”’Constellations’ has put us back in the hands of some indie and prog lovers as well as the ever welcoming folksters. We hope everyone will continue to explore music with us, especially as we move into the fourth album writing sessions. Thanks to all of our colleagues and team that go the extra mile for us.”
2014’s acclaimed third album ‘Constellations’ only confirmed what many already knew, and high praise rolled in from the likes of The Guardian and Folk Radio UK (Artist of the Month). So, it is here, in the band’s newest release, that expectation of another ‘huge’ and ‘Almost symphonic’ contribution will no doubt lay. To those who have such expectations, they can rest assured that they will not be disappointed.
