The Moulettes
Moulettes released their third studio album and their first for Navigator Records ‘Constellations’ on June 2nd. Recorded in studios, churches, tunnels, workshops and bedrooms around Brighton, Lewes and South Wales in the summer of 2013, it is their most complete and ambitious album to date. Few bands are able to call upon such a willing, prestigious and diverse group of guests. The album features a chamber orchestra that includes performances from legends Arthur Brown and Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed, Bowie) and contemporaries Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), The Unthanks, Emma Richardson (Band Of Skulls) and a host of players from Sweden, Germany, Greece, Holland, South Africa, Australia, Scotland and Bosnia. Brighton dub troubadour Faye Houston and dubstep producer Mike Dennis complete a supporting cast that emphasises the band’s incredible ability to blend their custom designed Cellos, Violins, Guitars, Drums, Bassoon, Double bass and synths into an incomparable pop/rock/folk package. Thus ‘Constellations’ crosses varied and expansive musical territory over its ten tracks. As songwriter, cellist and front singer Hannah Miller notes, “People have listened to Moulettes and heard Shostakovich, Miles Davis, Pentangle, Pink Floyd, Bjork and even 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 psycho-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 dark fantastical stories and intricate accompanying artwork for each song, ‘Constellations’ can accommodate the 20’s belle époque waltz of ‘The Night Is Young’, the progressive folk of ‘The Observatory’ & the death disco dub of album closer ‘Keep It As A Memory’ whilst remaining a conceptually and sonically cohesive piece that sparkles with inventiveness and creativity throughout. Co-produced by Moulette Oliver Austin and Joe Gibb (Catatonia, Leftfield, Kinks) and Mastered by John Dent (Mastering Engineer of the Year 2014: The Producers Guild), ‘Constellations’ delivers excellence on all fronts. It boasts 2 singles so far and A 3rd this winter all with accompanying uniquely stylised animations.
Renowned for their breathtaking live shows few bands have the creative range and work ethic of Moulettes. Containing a mix of self taught and classically trained members who have shared the stage and studio with the likes of Mick Jagger, Nick Cave, Seasick Steve, Bonobo and Dave Gilmour, their significant initial period was spent playing live and promoting the Den Of Iniquity nights in London that brought a host of acts to public prominence. After seven years of being a live band it was only in 2009 that their eponymous debut was released. This was followed in 2011 by ‘The Bear’s Revenge’, an album that saw MOJO hail them as “complex and beautiful…intriguing and unique”. Moulettes have constantly been on the road for 5 years and have played festivals as varied as Cropredy to End of the Road. They continue their busy gig schedule throughout April and May prior to a host of summer festival dates and tour in Europe.
