The Moods

The MoodsThe Moods release a seriously catchy anthem Carnival that will have you dancing the summer through.

The Moods have been wisely described as “Rage Against the Machine, The Prodigy and The Happy Mondays mixed into a grime-soufflé”. Formed in Manchester in 2014, this 10-strong band unifies rap, brass and strings, delivering a brilliant fusion of drum & bass, hip-hop, reggae and EDM. All ten Moods bringing their own unique style and energy to every single live set, meaning their mighty music always sparks off a contagious need to dance from the very first song on the set list. What’s more, their lyrics are relatable and real; this is music to make you think, as well as dance. With such a dizzying mix of instruments and passionate performers, their gigs are nothing short of spectacular. “It’s all about the BPM,” say bassist Dave O’Rourke, “and the feel of playing it live”.

The single features Jamaican-born artist Tixxy Bang and a vivid mix of brass, drum & bass and bold lyrics, Carnival is the ultimate summer 2018 anthem. It celebrates the freedom of finishing work for the weekend, of festival life, unforgettable times with good friends & brilliant music. Carnival was made to be played live and this summer, it certainly will be…
