The West End Cultural Centre is excited to present Moulettes on Wednesday, October 11th. Tickets are $17 and are available now.
Wowing Winnipeg Folk Festival audiences in 2016, Moulettes are one of UK's most unique touring bands and are steadily being singled out from the wave of apparent Bjork & Kate Bush influenced Indie/alt Folk bands that have arisen this decade. They Recorded their third studio album 'Constellations' (Navigator Records) in studios, churches, tunnels, artisan workshops and bedrooms around Brighton and released it in the UK in 2014 and in Germany Feb 2015. It is their most complete and ambitious album to date and it testifies to their extraordinary ability to draw together such a varied ensemble that features legends Arthur Brown (God of Hellfire) and Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed, Bowie), as well as contemporaries Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), The Unthanks, Emma Richardson (Band Of Skulls) and a host of Brighton regular players from Sweden, Germany, Greece, Holland, South Africa, Australia, Scotland, Bosnia.
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; For example, by putting Bassoons and stringed instruments through pedals and valve amps. They weave several genres with Cello, Violins, Guitars, Drums, Bassoon, Double bass, brass and synths into an incomparable pop/rock/folk Universe. Exercising both delicacy and fierceness, female Songwriter and Cellist Hannah Miller creates an otherworldly framework in which fantastical characters move bewteen the realms of Nature, Magic and Science. The band also contains a mix of self-taught and classically trained multi-instrumentalists and singers who will often play more than one instrument per song and even at the same time.
If you are looking for good song writing, incredible musicianship and a truly unique projection of recorded music to date squeezed into accessible pop tunes Moulettes is the band for you.
