London five-piece moa moa have just dropped their rapturous new single, ‘Boy Girl’, which is accompanied by a vibrant music video and tranquil b-side, ‘Stingray’.
It marks the band’s first single since their debut EP, ‘Brain Feelings’, dropped back in April.
Speaking on the track, the band have said that, “‘Boy Girl’ is about exploring the stream-of-conscious-like mentality of being a child. From the irrational fear of sitting boy, girl, boy, girl…to the freedom of demanding to do precisely whatever you want, all the time. It made me reflect on how I felt about myself and the world when I was growing up, and the importance of never losing touch with that inner child as an adult.”

The single has also arrived with a b-side accompaniment, ‘Stingray’, which provides a more tranquil groove. moa moa vocalist James Ratcliffe shares that, “‘Stingray’ is me allowing myself to emotionally cosplay as a sentient stingray. Naive to the frustrations and complexities of modern life – and free of my own internal neurosis – I float through a wholesome, carefree paradise, able to drink in the beauty of my cosmos with my best pals.”
