Reliably informed

Formed without “any specific genre of music, concrete plans or real goals in mind” The Moth Trust are an enigmatic quartet of North East-based musicians who wear their hearts (and accents) on their sleeves, but give little else away throughout a five-song collection of spellbinding, shape-shifting songs, which are as rich in stylistic right-turns and time-signature shifts as they are in sugar-soaked melodies and moments of sheer sonic beauty (particularly in the jaw-dropping splendour of Two Ghosts, and the anthemic euphoria of closer Be Right Back).

This self-titled release is a cathartic burst of heart-stirring wonder from four incredibly talented musicians who owe it to themselves to step a little more confidently in the spotlight. An essential listen.
