"Divine harmonies" ***** Time Out
"Equal parts Kronos quartet, Roxy Music, Frank Zappa, Kate Bush...echoes of early Pink Floyd, Bowie and Radiohead...the electronica of Kraftwerk and the acoustic melody of Pentangle. Precise, carefully crafted and genre defying"- R2
"A clever and original band" **** The Guardian

Moulettes are a Brighton based British band of multi instrumentalists that weave in and out of several genres with 2 part harmony female vocals, amplified Cello, Auto-Harp, Guitar, Drums, Bass and Synths into an incomparable alt.pop/rock/folk universe.
Singles from their eponymous release in 2010 (****Mojo), their follow up ‘The Bear's Revenge' in 2012 (**** The Guardian) and third studio album ‘Constellations' (No.7 Indie Charts, Best Album: Spiral Earth Awards) have been played across BBC6 and BBC2 with support from Cerys Mathews, Mark Radcliffe, Mary Anne Hobbs, Bob Harris, Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne. Since playing together at school in Glastonbury to residencies on Tin Pan Alley, to a multitude of festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Cropredy, Cambridge Folk, End Of The Road and Green Man along with relentless world touring, the band have become renowned for their breath taking live shows.
On the way the band have shared both the stage and studio with many well-known artists in Folk, Prog, Pop and Rock, including Mick Jagger, Nick Cave, Seasick Steve, Bonobo, Gentle Giant, Mumford and Sons (Ted Dwane was a founding Moulette), Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Bellowhead, and The Levellers. Fresh from a rapturously received coast to coast tour of Canada, including main stage shows at Montreal Jazz Festival and Winnipeg Folk festival, Moulettes will be touring the European release of their album in early 2017. The release features exclusive new remixes, B-sides and live tracks.
