Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…
24 August 2018
Last December London’s variable collective outfit MODERATE REBELS released their lo-fi pop debut album The Sound Of Security. Intriguing record on which this self-proclaimed Anti-Music Collective created a grey, yet sticky soundtrack for our troubled reality. Early July they returned to the scene with new track Beyond Hidden Words. A hypnotizing stroke, feeling like a continuation of their experimental search into the sticky simplicity of repetitive psych grooves à la the early Velvet Undergound.
We were quite surprised when hearing the second cut from the new, upcoming longplayer. I LOVE TODAY comes close to a traditional song structure. It has some
verses, choruses and even a middle eight section. Although Moderate Rebels claim
“they still don’t know if this song is optimistic or not” this new one has a mantra-like,
positive sing-along energy. I agree, it’s a sort of song, but it’s its magnetic groove
that activates your bloodstream, makes your feet tap and your head shake. From
groove to mantra and back with the same body/mind-moving effect. Perfect!
Hear and feel the heartbeat right here…
