We continue our guide to the artists who are set for a massive 2021 with Moa Moa
With 2021 so far shaping up to be just as much of a mess as 2020, we’re taking solace in the huge amount of incredible new music being made right now. Our Class of ’21 series continues today with London 5 piece Moa Moa who draw their inspiration from the likes of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and James Blake. We love the tracks we’ve heard so far and can’t wait to hear what they come up with next.
Who: Moa Moa
What: Moa Moa pair their unconventional songwriting with pop-leaning sensibilities to create shimmering, psychedelic pop.
Why: “Nothing pushes away those mid-week blues like finding your fave new band, and newbies Moa Moa have all the ingredients to become just that.” DIY
Describe your music for someone who’s never heard it?
Chonky, weird and (hopefully) somewhat wonderful
Who are some artists who’re inspiring you right now?
Very much varies… Moses Sumney’s record from this year is amazing, though.
What’s been your highlight of 2020?
Ha! Where to start?! Despite the shit-show that is 2020, we’ve been able to put out two tracks to introduce people to our world. Both have had a load of love, and it’s been a real source of happiness seeing everyone who has taken to the tunes. That and Trump losing.
What are you most excited about for 2021?
Shows. We love making tunes, but live shows have been totally ripped away from us this year, when we should be really busy. There’s nothing like seeing recorded tunes take on a new life in live rooms, with people reacting in real time. We have loads of exciting plans and we just want to get out to new people, new places and really start cracking on.
Tell us about a band/artist that you’re excited to hear more from in 2021?
Jockstrap. Also Billy Nomates. She’s really fun live.
