New Zealand’s best kept secret, psychedelic/alternative rock band MOSES are back with a brilliantly dreamy, escapist release titled “Lose Like You Love”, which is the first single off the band’s sophomore album scheduled to drop February 15th this year.
The single is a creatively melancholic, shoegaze song, which touches upon the current status quo and conformity mindset, amongst a growing sense of unhappiness and lack of fulfilment, as the band expresses their view point in what feels like an ethereal, trippy but cool (…as in “Don’t worry… I got this”) kind of execution.
Recorded in New Zealand’s rural settings, a key inspiration point and catalyst to the theme, the band’s first official release of 2017 is a richly layered and textured track, which is able to convey a message of hope and commitment as the lyrics “Trust what your heart says, It’s just another step in the way” suggest, as the lead singer’s mellow delivery takes you on an introspective journey, supported by the bands expansive sound.
For a band formed in late 2015, they are actually not doing bad… having released two EP’s, a number of singles, a full length album and signing to Australia based Half A Cow Records, MOSES has promising shows steady lined up, as they’re embarking on an album release tour in New Zealand, Australia, South Korea, China, UK, France, Spain, Belgium and The Netherlands before relocating permanently to Berlin!
2017 is shaping up to be a good year with the band’s impressive artistry which is backed up by their phenomenal work rate, so we’re expecting nothing but good things for New Zealand’s MOSES! Stay tuned folks!!
