Moulettes

English eclectic Art Rock band

+ support from

Bunty & Mike Dennis

Having formed in early 2000’s out of Glastonbury and Winchester, The Moulettes have fast become renowned for their breathtaking live shows. It is clear that few bands have the creative range and work ethic of Moulettes, with a brave approach to production and arrangement Moulettes look for peculiar ways of blending acoustic and electric instruments. Lead singer and songwriter Hannah Miller creates an otherworldly framework in which fantastical characters move between the realms of nature, magic and science and out of that Preternatural was born - an eclectic 11-track opus for the Natural World, and the strange and beautiful creatures in it.

The Moulettes have always been an evolving phenomenon and each album has seen a significant leap into new unchartered territory, prompting comparisons as disparate as Roxy Music, Frank Zappa, Kate Bush, Bowie and Radiohead plus more.

“We identify with bands who present their own kind of eclecticism,” says Oliver Austin. “From Zappa, and Gentle Giant to current bands like Field Music, John Grant, Snarky Puppy, Laura Mvula, My Brightest Diamond, tUnE-yArDs and Tortoise; these were all references for the record.

Incurably ambitious, this is a band that has always put an adventurous approach to Art at the heart of their craft and have constantly been on the road with varying sized ensembles from a three-piece to a full chamber orchestra.

Bunty, a Brighton-based musician and visual artist will be taking to the stage in Bristol on Thursday 7 December. Part of the Beatabet collective, live Bunty uses her renegade multi-instrumentalism, voice, effects pedals and a mash of real and made-up languages. Her live show is like nothing else with each set bringing to life a huge amount of improvisation, meaning this performance will be unlike any other she has done before.

To continue the theme of the unexpected, in addition to Bunty, classically-trained violinist Mike Dennis will be supporting. His love of Run DMC, Beastie Boys and Gangstarr has led him to create a unique kind of string-heavy hip hop music he calls Violinica. Drawing inspiration from daily British life and the perils and profits of love - you will not see any other artist like this!
