After spending the better part of two decades making music together, Moderat have carved out a sound and aesthetic that are all their own, and MORE D4TA showcases a group that’s creatively recharged and fully dedicated to its craft. The album is rooted in collaboration, but long before any of its tracks were laid down, Moderat spent months hanging out and getting musically reacquainted, indulging in extended bouts of experimentation and slowly fleshing out ideas as they dove into modular composition, field recordings and other sonic oddities. But no matter how far the band ventures into music’s outer realms, they always wind up back in their own unique soundworld, a place where emotive pop and fluttering electronic soundscapes walk hand in hand.
Moderat will return to the stage with sold out premiere-shows in Leipzig (May 17 & 18) and Cologne (May 19 & 20 – few tickets left for the show on May 20). The band has prepared an all new audio-/visual-show, so don’t miss them on their upcoming festival appearances, the European and North American tour dates. Some concerts are already sold out, so better be quick and purchase tickets here.
