Upcoming events at Ġugar!

Moulettes live at Ġugar! - Tuesday 9th and Friday 12th September.

Moulettes will be visiting Malta once again for whoever missed their incredible live shows in the past years! They will be playing acoustically at Ġugar! on Tuesday 9th and Friday 12th September. Don't miss them this time!  First come first served!

Moulettes released their third studio album 'Constellations’ on June 2nd. Recorded in studios, churches, tunnels, workshops and bedrooms around Brighton in the summer of 2013, it is their most complete and ambitious album to date. The album features a chamber orchestra that includes performances from legends Arthur Brown and Herbie Flowers (Lou Reed, Bowie) and contemporaries Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets), The Unthanks, Emma Richardson (Band Of Skulls) and a host of players from Sweden, Germany, Greece, Holland, South Africa, Australia, Scotland and Bosnia. The band has an incredible ability to blend several genres with Cello, Violins, Guitars, Drums, Bassoon, Double bass, brass and synths into an incomparable pop/rock/folk ensemble. 

Also renowned for their breathtaking live shows it is clear that few bands have the creative range and work ethic of Moulettes. Headed up by the fierce female songwriter and Cellist Hannah Miller, the band also contains a mix of self taught and classically trained members who have shared the stage and studio with the likes of Mick Jagger, Nick Cave, Seasick Steve, Bonobo and Dave Gilmour. 

Their significant initial period was spent playing live and promoting the Den Of Iniquity nights in London /Manchester and Southampton. Since then Moulettes have been recognised as front runners and innovators within what has been labelled the ‘Indie folk’ and ‘Prog folk’ genre. This genre blends bands such as Pink Floyd, Pentangle and Bjork with elements of chamber pop and Scandinavian folk. Moulettes have been constantly been on the road for 5 years with varying sized ensembles playing festivals as varied as Cropredy /End of the Road/Bestival/ and Cambridge Folk. 

They continue their busy gig schedule playing a host of summer festival dates and a Headline tour in Europe and UK in Oct-Dec. If you are looking for good song writing, incredible musicianship and a truly unique projection of all music to date squeezed into accessible pop tunes Moulettes is the band for you.
