The Moods Get Ready For New Music And Tour

Written by Rahoul Naik

The Moods are Manchester’s premier electro hip-hop reggae outfit, and their message is loud and clear. This 9-strong band unifies rap, brass and beats, delivering potent, political lyrics for a post-2016 world.

The Moods will make you dance, and then they’ll make you think. Born out of a musical experiment in North Manchester’s Boomshack Studios in early 2014, The Moods quickly gathered members and momentum. A dizzying amalgamation of producers and poets, they swiftly honed their very own sound, which, when taken live, quite simply blew their audiences away. It wasn’t long before they attracted the attention of local radio stations and journalists like John Robb and Terry Christian, too.

The Moods ended 2016 on an absolute high, with raucous, sell-out gigs in London, Glasgow and Manchester. As the world reflected on the travesty that was 2016, The Moods channelled their energy into writing and performing their vital, mighty music.

Thanks to their artist development deal with A1M Records, The Moods’ mighty music is getting the exposure it rightly deserves. Two of the band’s tracks have been chosen for the soundtrack of new UK feature film Strangeways Here We Come. This summer, they’ll be taking their bold, live show on the road. Autumn will see the release of their album, Missing Peace, followed by even more unmissable gigs.

The band’s new single Joy is set to be released on 16th June and so we are eagerly waiting to hear more. You can see the band on the road from the start of June and could just get a sneak peak of their forthcoming album, Missing Peace too!
