After a monumental 2017, the moods accelerate into 2018 at an exponential rate. Hailing from Manchester and the North West, The Moods are a ten-piece collective creating socially charged rap dealing with topics such as corruption, poverty, injustice and inequality.
As the worlds leaders, posture and trade political rhetoric and Europe contemplates a post-Brexit world, the moods channel all their energy into writing and performing their vital, mighty music. The Moods “make you dance and think”.
The Moods formed in late 2014, a ten-piece collective of producers, poets and musicians from the Northwest of England. Combining drum & bass, reggae, hip-hop and EDM, The Moods’ mighty music sparks off a contagious need to dance, underpinned, with real grit & substance. They are a band with plenty to say, singing and rapping with raw passion about the important stuff like war, famine, love, life and death. This is music for the head & heart, “They will make you dance, and then they’ll make you think”. The Moods have been ” hotly tipped” by, the Mancunian, (the UK,s biggest student newspaper), described as “the most original music to be on the Manchester music scene“ and ” A band developing at an exponential rate”. Voted, Album of the Year in The National Press, (The Morning Star), Voted, “Ones To Watch for 2018”, by MCR Live, Named Band of the Year (The Salford Star) and New Band of The Day (Louder Than War).
