The Moods Short Info

The Moods are a ten-piece collective of producers, poets and musicians from the Northwest of England. Combining drum & bass, reggae, hip-hop and EDM, The Moods’ mighty music sparks off a contagious need to dance, underpinned, with real grit & substance. They are a band with plenty to say, singing and rapping with raw passion about the important stuff like war, famine, love, life and death. This is music for the head & heart, “They will make you dance, and then they’ll make you think”.

Summer 2017 has been unforgettable for The Moods and their fans. The band have wowed crowds in iconic venues, in fields, even in a forest and a barn. They have brought down the house at festivals and added legions of fans to the moods family. The band’s first two singles JOY and P.O.P (Profit Over People) have been met with critical acclaim having been played numerous times on BBC Lancashire, BBC Sheffield and over 30 regional FM stations. Their powerful new video for new single P.O.P (Profit Over People), is currently broadcast across the globe on the internet and TV on the VEVO platform. The incredible summer season culminated with a huge homecoming gig for The Moods at Manchester’s landmark O2 Ritz. A 900+ packed house at this iconic venue, witnessed a spine tingling, emotional night, critically acclaimed in national & regional music press. The UK’s leading student magazine the Mancunion proclaimed, "The Moods are not like anything you’ve ever heard before", and “Some of the most original music to be on the Manchester music scene currently”. Online review site ‘The Music Site’ added, "They combine elements from electronic, reggae and rap music to create something rather spectacular".

September saw the release of their new album, Missing Peace. Available in all major record stores, it has gained numerous five-star reviews and is packed with potent political messages. This is way more than just infectious music and rap. The Moods tackle topics such as social injustice, inequality, poverty and corruption. With so many important things to say, it only seems right that The Moods spread their word far and wide and they are currently on another massive UK tour which started with two sell-out shows at London’s Imperial College.

2018 promises to be a landmark year for the band as they embark on their first European tour and have another busy schedule in the pipeline with more UK tours and festival slots.
