Mosa Wild have shared a new single, ‘Cry Baby.’ It is the first in a spate of new recordings, finding their release throughout the Spring on Glassnote Records.
The track was produced alongside Ben Baptie (Rex Orange County, Moses Sumney) and a video for the track has also been unveiled. The visuals were devised, directed and filmed by the band who taught themselves rudimentary Final Cut Pro to make it. A DIY project for DIY times…
Mosa Wild are a four piece guitar band. They’re fronted by Jim Rubaduka and backed by school friends Edwin Ireland, Charlie Campbell, and Alex Stevens. They’re an EP old, and right about to give birth to a second.
About the track, Jim states: “Cry Baby looks at how the nature of life isn’t permanence but flux. I think we all might have a complicated relationship with change, it’s either something we welcome or dread. I’ve always been fascinated with our reaction to change and the constant push and pull between wanting things to go back to how they were, stay the same or change.”
The stories of lockdown are now ten-a-penny of course. Bands of Mosa Wild’s level, or any level, should be out on the road, honing their craft, picking up fans, writing as the motorways rumble under the van’s wheels all the way back to Ashford. They’ve had some experience of it already, touring with Maggie Rogers, Tame Impala, and label mate Jade Bird. But alas, they like all of us, are stuck at home contemplating things we really ought to have started but keep putting the kettle on for welcome distraction. A stuttering day that culminates in very little, over and over and over again. Ugh.
Mosa Wild are set to perform a socially distanced show at London’s Lafayette on the 17th April 2021. Tickets are on sale in groups of two only HERE.
