If variety is the spice of life then Moesley are a musical curry. Where the phrase "sounds like..." precedes the description of any band, Moesley are a musical anomaly with a true sound of their own.

Biography

Welcome to the politely creepy world of Moesley. In an industry where the phrase “sounds like…” precedes the description of any band, Moesley are a musical anomaly with a true sound of their own.

The single “All That’s Left” is the latest effort from the off-kilter Dublin group, with a full scale independent release on the cards for September 29th 2006. Without a management team or even a booking agent Moesley have secured gigs in some of Irelands top venues and have been regulars on local and commercial radio stations. They have also recorded a video with Torn Pictures Production Company to be released along with the single.

When asked, the band will cite a list of influences from Pink Floyd and Radiohead to Bob Marley and Aphex Twin, but none of these influences are overtly worn on their collective sleeve. Instead, haunting, visceral, honest and beautiful songs are at the forefront of their sonic assault, and over-the-top posturing takes a back seat to solid musicianship and songwriting.

Moesley was born in 2002 when brothers Colm, Eoin and Glenn Cullen began jamming in their bedroom with friends Dave Murray and Paul O’Brien. Moesley are a breath of fresh air in an often stale and stagnant Irish scene. The music is rooted in rock, funk, reggae and pop, but the overall sound is uniquely theirs. From the freaky stomp of Baby Spiders to the sexually charged I Want To See You Naked, the music is schizophrenically innovative and varied, but it is always fun.

Their debut E.P. I’ll Be Your Freak was released in 2005, and has received heavy praise from its listeners. Many of the tracks have featured on the top 10 downloads list from mp3 download site CPU.ie (with over 7000 downloads), and the E.P. earned them a slot on The Compilation Returns: The Best of Irish Unsigned, a collection gathering the cream of the crop of Irish Unsigned acts. In addition to their recording endeavours, the quartet have honed a high-energy live set over the last four years that has earned them a dedicated following. Moesley have gigged extensively both inside and outside the Pale, and among their many high profile support gigs, the band has played their own headline slots at Temple Bar Music Centre , Whelans, The Hub, Fibber Magees, U.C.D and headlined PaulAid a charity Concert held in Barcode (Clontarf) that raised over 10,000 euro for overseas aid.

The single “All That’s Left” is the latest effort from the off-kilter Dublin group, and features a video shot by Torn Pictures Production Company. It is being independently released, and will be available at Record stores Nationwide.
