* Limited First Edition Pressing
* With Japanese OBI-Strip
The first and only release from London-based dream pop band, exlovers, is finally getting its long-deserved analog release - a first in the ten years since it was sent out into the world. Moth sees them connect the often disparate genres of jangle pop, shoegaze, and folk, and even after a decade, it still sounds fresh.
After releasing their debut single “Just A Silhouette” in 2008, London-based dream pop quintet exlovers quickly became a rising star of the UK indie rock scene. Four years after “Just A Silhouette”, they returned with their full length debut album Moth, touring as far as Japan in support of it. Despite their success, the band would disband before they had a chance to release anything else.
Yet, even now, over a decade since the band’s break-up indie fans across the globe continue to praise Moth. Jangling guitars, the perfectly imperfect vocal harmonies of vocalists Peter Scott and Laurel Sills, and warm reverb combine to create an atmosphere akin to sleeping in a cloud. From dreamy album opener “Starlight, Starlight”, to the distorted grunge-esque “Blowing Kisses”, exlovers never disappoint with their dreamy guitar pop. Don’t miss the folky, Elliott Smith inspired “I Wish We’d Never Met”, or modern jangle pop classic “You Forget so Easily”, truly highlighting the band’s versatility. Listen carefully, as the unmistakable analog warmth further draws out the immeasurable talent of a band at the height of their career. With a Japan-exclusive obi-strip, this first ever vinyl pressing of exlovers’ Moth is one you absolutely must not miss.
