South Londoners moa moa have returned with a brand new single, ‘Information’.
The song comes alongside news of a debut EP, ‘Brain Feelings’, which is set to arrive on 1st April. A vinyl pressing will be available from 26th August.
Vocalist James Ratcliffe explains: “’Information’ is about exploring sexuality in an age of online promiscuity. After all the scandals about the NSA snooping and trading our nudes, I expected the culture to change around nudes, but it didn’t. Dick pics from strangers are like pocket change on Grindr, and I get it… I feel unperturbed knowing that random NSA employees may be trading genitals like baseball cards, and when I’m talking to a pretty girl or boy about private things, I just accept it’s not private – even though I wish it was.”
The new track follows on from 2021 singles ‘Drive’ – which also features on the upcoming EP – and Speedy Wunderground released ‘Coltan Candy’.
Speaking about the EP, Ratcliffe continues: “I often feel that, when balancing every aspect of my life, I don’t have time left to process and express my emotions. The feelings just get stuck in my brain, making me feel insular, disconnected and less able to participate in the world. It gets to the point where the only thing left to do is to shout something like ‘BABY, I GOT THESE FEELINGS IN MY BRAIN’ as a semi-ironic way of expressing an inner universe unable to articulate itself”.
