While not denying any genre as an influence, New York City Post-World dance rock band New Moods is constantly looking forward through hazy borders of objectivity. While never forgetting the 80′s New Wave movie soundtracks they heard growing up, the music is consistently focused on new directions in sound. Rhythmic elements sometimes reminiscent of a cross between Urban Dance and Baile Funk seamlessly mixed with catchy pseudo-pop melodic synthesizer progressions inspired by Raï and UK Acid-House. They draw the listener in with dark introspective lyrics, along with Anatolian guitar sounds seemingly flowing from the Bosporus to create a memorably dynamic sound. Whether it be physical or emotional — New Moods is moving.
After playing a dozen shows as an electro-two piece, New Moods have recently been joined by Melati Malay (Young Magic) and James Buonantuono (Other Passengers).
