The music and magic of M O S E S is destined to be some kind of crucial soundtrack to 2016’s prescient indie generation. We know this not because a biblical man of faith lived and died some three and a half thousand years ago (leaving a musical body of work yet to be truly appreciated) but because a young and really extraordinary four-piece has only recently emerged from the flotsam and jetsam of this century’s most intriguing year to date.


Songs like Low and Cause You Got Me and Waiter are a call to arms for the disaffected and the kind of anthems people are going to be singing along with for many years to come but let’s just get the elephant out of the room first: M O S E S don’t just exude “the fizzing energy of very early Blur, except, maybe even better” (Tom Doyle, Mojo) nor do they merely remind you of Kasabian’s earliest incarnations; instead their effortlessly cathartic songs have the instant familiarity of the already-deified, their soon to be lauded existence surely an insouciant shrug in the development of modern day, hard-edged popular music.
