Pre-sale of the week is Preternatural by Moulettes, out on 27 May.
Brighton-based collective Moulettes continue their journey into the alt.pop/rock/folk universe with the release of their most accomplished album to date. “I’ve always been fascinated by the natural world,” says lead singer Hannah Miller. “But an article in New Scientist compelled me to look deeper and start exploring all the surreal and beautiful diversity that exists. There’s so many phenomenal creatures out there we thought they deserved their own album.”
Fast-forward to 2016 and the result is Preternatural – an eclectic but cohesive 11-track collection. It’s a beautifully orchestrated piece of work, experimental in parts but still accessible, fusing rich vocal harmonies, persuasive melodies, and elaborate compositions to make a genre defying album that explores the moving gaps of electronic and acoustic, DIY and big production.
Moulettes will be performing an album launch show in Hundred Records on 27 May.
