Continuing to record in a small studio in South Bermondsey, Moderate Rebels are pursuing their stated musical ambition, ‘to use as few words and chords as possible, and see what happens. We want to acknowledge the conditions of the era we find ourselves in and, hopefully at points, generate feelings of transcending them.’

Some (but by no means all) musical touchstones mentioned in the course of writing Moderate Rebels’ new songs are Spacemen 3, La Dusseldorf, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Roxy Music, Black Box Recorder, Jenny Hval, Death In Vegas, OOIOO and MGMT.
