Now embarking on the biggest musical adventure in their career so far, Hannah Moule & the Moulettes are continuing to challenge expectations with Xenolalia, an extraordinary experiment in composition, collaboration and production. The project features 55 pieces of music about communication told 5 ways for 5 ensembles: Strings, Horns, A Cappella, Electronica & Electric (full access to the project through Patreon).

2022 will see the 2nd Xenolalia Tour: The Strings Ensemble. From chamber pop to prog-folk, cinematic expositions and big riffs, a love of string music has always been at the heart of Moulettes, led by cellist & songwriter Hannah Moule. In this configuration, the multi-instrumentalists of the group push what can be done with a traditional chamber ensemble, moving between classical & steel string Guitars, Cellos, Viola, Piano, Violin, Harp, Nyckelharpa (Swedish keyed fiddle), Percussion & close trademark use of harmony vocals.

As they inhabit different spaces across the country, the Moulettes music is given the opportunity to explore the sinew, resonance & lushness of acoustic instruments that are so sympathetic to the human ear, playing new material alongside re-imagined old favorites.

 

They will be supported by Blythe Pepino, a singer, songwriter, pianist and music producer. She fronts the band Mesadorm – an alt acoustic-electro indie band which has been hailed on BBC Radio 6 and whose debut album was marked as one of the best alternative albums of 2018 by The Guardian. Mesadorm have just released their second album, Pollinator, produced by Pepino.

With a lifelong interest in the voice, she is an advocate and teacher for self-healing through vocal resonance. Live an on record her voice is as versatile in emotion as it is in range and tone. Although she has graced stadium size venues and reached major record label prominence, she now covets full creative control over her releases and is more inclined towards intimate performance spaces and the indie music universe.

 

Praise for Hannah Moule & The Moulettes

“Stunning lyrics. Engaging and unusual…reminds me A little of The Dark Crystal. All the best bits of Bjork and Midlake, moody, intense and modern as well.” Huffington Post

“Swirling songs & folk fusion. Moulettes don’t fit easily into any musical category. Prog folk & psych folk with added classical & rock influences. Immaculate & thrilling female harmony vocals and unexpected instrumentation. This is a compelling and original band.” The Guardian

“Huge, complex and compelling. One of the most thrillingly nimble musical ensembles the UK has produced in decades. Lead singer must be a national treasure soon” Prog Magazine
