Easily one of the most original and spellbinding acts that the UK has produced in years… we are delighted to welcome Hannah Moule & The Moulettes to Ramsgate on Saturday November 20th!
An elaborate blend of prog folk and psych folk, with added classical and rock influences. Described by Hannah Moule herself as a mixture of “Shostakovich, Miles Davis, Pentangle, Pink Floyd, Björk and Skrillex”.
“Their sound palette is colourful, playful and unexpected; as soon as you think you know the destiny of a song they will take it in a new one. Intense and beautiful compositions… a masterful album” – Folk Radio
Since their formation at Glastonbury Festival 2002, the ever-evolving collective Moulettes have forged an uncommon course. Over the years, The Moulettes have become an extended family tree, a musical ecosystem with tentacles in London, Manchester, Brighton, Bristol, Berlin, Montreal and more. From the avant-folk of their early albums to cinematic orchestral arrangements and big riffs, this is a band who put creativity at the heart of everything they do.
The Moulettes have had support from all over the world, with praise and appreciation in the parallel worlds of Folk, Prog and Indie. Key supporters include BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, The Independent, MOJO, The Guardian, PROG Magazine, Music Week, Metro, The Evening Standard. As they reinvent and reimagine themselves at every stage with a revolving cast of exceptional musicians, Moulettes’ music is always distinctively recognisable.
Hannah Moule and The Moulettes return with their 5th studio album and their most ambitious project to date. ‘Xenolalia’, is a collection of 55 pieces of music: 11 songs about communication, told 5 ways. Electric, Strings, A Cappella, Horns and Electronica. Now embarking on the biggest adventure in their career so far, Hannah and the band are pushing all the boundaries for this extraordinary release.
