Mysterious yet at the same time intriguing.
Glasgow based New Zealander MOY might only share a few details of their background; giving off a mysterious but enigmatic quality. But in the space of just three singles and known for their eloquent wordplay, charismatic performances and distinctive visuals suggest there is much more to be discovered.
'No Talk's The Best Chat' elevated their growing profile, but their latest single 'At My Door' demonstrates the band versatility through lurching riffs and full of loud-quiet dynamics that modernised the 90s lo-fi indie scene.
With such curious characteristics yet alluring music, MOY are becoming the band to keep your eyes on.
