Fast Five: M O S E S



How did you meet and what’s the story behind your band name?

It all started with Victor (singer) who posted an online ad that said he was looking for a guitar player to start a band with. Juno (guitar) replied, they exchanged demos, liked what they heard, skyped and then met in London. They auditioned for the two missing members of the four-piece and found Matt (drums) and Scott (bass). We had our first gig in May 2015 and didn’t stop since then. Unfortunately, in June 2016 Scott decided to leave the band, but we were lucky enough to find Zack, our new bass player.

Regarding the name, we won’t lie to you – there’s absolutely no hidden meaning behind it. It simply sounds good, round and we like how it looks like written on paper. Love the letters, man, just love these letters. Anyway, there is definitely no religious connection to it.

How would you describe your music?

Like nothing you’ve heard before and, at the same time, familiar.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

Well, it’s been an amazing year, with a lot of music writing, a lot of gigs and some great reactions to our music – quite an intense beginning. We played over 50 shows in London, played Camden Rocks Festival – the Electric Ballroom experience was amazing – had our first tour ever together with the awesome Virginmarys, supported the legendary Jimmy Eat World and amazing The Enemy on their Farewell Tour. We also have some incredible people who teamed up around the band – we’re basically getting ready for magic. On the 7th of September we released our debut single – LEAVE LEAVE LEAVE – the video for it is coming really soon and our debut EP is also ready to preorder, both digital and vinyl. Also, we’ve got some really cool gigs coming up soon, so check our Facebook/Twitter for all the details.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

It’s difficult to agree on one, as there’s four of us here. Hm…probably with Noel Gallagher, so we can ‘Live Forever’.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

This time, because a desert island is quite an extreme situation, we’re claiming four options, one for each of us:
Victor – London Calling (The Clash)
Juno – White Album (The Beatles)
Matt – Siamese Dream (The Smashing Pumpkins)
Zakk – Antidotes (Foals)
