LISTEN: Mosa Wild - 'Talking In Circles'

I'm a couple of weeks late sharing this one but still need to spread the word and get you all listening to the debut EP from Mosa Wild. The release sees the band bring together singles Night, Smoke and Tides with brand new tracks Faultine and my personal favourite, Honey. It was produced partly by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club) and partly by James Kenosha (Pulled Apart By Horses, Dry The River) - a pretty strong foundation!

Vocalist Jim Rubaduka describes that the EP is about "all the stuff people deal with again and again" - love, loss, feeling stuck and heartbreak. As a young band revelling in experimenting musically on their first release, Jim goes on to explain that "we don't feel tethered to an instrument in any way. In this setting anything feels like fair game to us." The result is smooth and full of promise, with Jim's vocals pulling everything together superbly - this doesn't feel like a debut release, but as I know that it is, consider me suitably impressed!

The band sold out their first ever headline show at The Waiting Room earlier this year and they're stepping it up with a show at Omeara on 18th September. They're also supporting label-mate Jade Bird on her UK tour in November. Full list of dates and tickets here.
