After an incredible summer of brilliant gigs all over the UK, The Moods are coming home to launch their highly-anticipated debut album.
P.O.P. (Profit over People), is the new single to come off the album, and is an addictive anthem with a powerful message. At a moment in time when music is a crucial part of the push for social change, this breathtaking track is both resonant and relevant. Missing Peace showcases The Moods’ talent for producing mighty music with substance and grit. The Moods will make you dance, and then they’ll make you think.
The Moods are a ten-piece collective of producers, poets and musicians from Manchester and the North West. Combining drum & bass, reggae, hip-hop and EDM, their music sparks off a contagious need to dance. This summer, the band’s live act got even greater with the welcoming of Alice, a classically-trained violinist, to the family; her stunning strings bring a whole new level to The Moods’ already awesome performance.
“[The Moods] are a truly down-to-earth band with an infectious charisma that creates a visible brotherhood on stage. Each one feeds off the others, elevating the energy with each song.” Dana Miller, The Music Site.
The Moods’ first single, JOY, was met with critical acclaim, prime time radio airplay, tens of thousands of streams and stellar reviews. And the thought-provoking video to accompany the single, starring Steve Evets (Looking for Eric) has been entered for the BFI London Film Festival.
