Brighton, UK-based collective Moulettes, create a hard to pigeon hole sound that embraces prog, pop, alt-folk and rock and are visiting Australia for the first time performing at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival and a series of shows in between.

It was in early 2015 when reading an article in the New Scientist that lead singer Hannah Miller first starting thinking about a concept for the new album. “I’ve always been fascinated by the natural world” says Hannah. “But this article compelled me to look deeper and start exploring all the surreal and beautiful diversity that exists. There’s so many phenomenal creatures out there we thought they deserved their own album.”

They joined me in Melbourne for a chat and performance. If you get the chance, don’t miss this stunning ensemble in action. Dates below.
