Amsterdam’s Moss released their 2nd album in 2009. It all started in the confinement of an English farm on the outskirts of London. Inspiration came in many forms. A live show by the Brian Jonestown Massacre set the tone. A conversation in a pub with a man who insures satellites for a living was food for thought. The energy and vibrancy of the streets of London filled their heads and Phoenix playe
d constantly on the car stereo to and from the studio sessions. Back home some credit has to be given to the old bomb shelter in Amsterdam, where they set to work moulding this collection of ideas into an intense, dark and driven sound.
The band’s sound is hard to pin down, taking cues from a rich musical tapestry but always focussing on a finely honed song writing craft.
