Event Information

The Moulettes, one of the UK’s most unique touring bands have announced four UK headline this December. Kicking off in Glasgow on 4 December and followed by shows in Manchester and Bristol before finishing up in London on 8 December where they will be joined by 9Bach at Cadogan Hall for what is set to be an incredibly memorable show. 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. December 2017 is the concluding chapter of the two-year ‘Preternatural’ tour, and the last chance to see the astounding live show that has taken the band across Europe from Poland to Malta, and across Canada from Nova Scotia to Victoria Island.
