Watch the Film, Hear The Single (Radio edit)

?Currently Playing on 20 different UK regional and Student Radio Stations?

JOY- Is the Debut Single from The Moods - Manchester?s premier electro hip-hop reggae outfit, Released 23.06.17. The single is taken from the Moods forthcoming album "Missing Peace". "Mixing soaring vocals, rousing strings and drum and bass, Joy will have fans dancing in fields, on dance floors, in living rooms? wherever they happen to be when they?re lucky enough to hear the track."

The Moods are kicking off summer with the release of Joy, their powerful new single, ahead of a busy tour schedule. Joy is accompanied by a thought-provoking short film starring actor and musician Steve Evets, who found fame in the leading role in 2009 film looking for Eric, and formerly played Bass for The Fall. Shot on location in Salford and Manchester, the story follows two wildly different characters as an average day unravels and they both meet dramatic and contrasting fates. It?s an emotional story with a hopeful ending, and it will stay with you long after you?ve watched it. As well as Evets, the video, directed and filmed by Croftwerk Productions, features established local actors Nicole Evans, John Mackie and radio broadcaster James Stannage.

As part of their artist development deal with Salford-based A1M Records, The Moods are working with a collective of passionate industry professionals to make sure their mighty music receives the regional and national exposure that it thoroughly deserves. The Moods? message is loud and clear; this 9-strong band unifies rap, brass and beats, delivering potent, political lyrics for a post-2016 world. The Moods will make you dance, and then they?ll make you think.

To promote the new single and video, out 23rd June on A1M records, the Moods take their bold, live show on the road for a UK tour, starting with the Joy launch party in Manchester on 16th June. After a summer travelling around the country, the band return to Manchester in September to launch their album, Missing Peace, at Manchester?s iconic O2 Ritz.

About The Moods (Biog)

The Moods are Manchester's premier electro hip-hop reggae outfit, and their message is loud and clear. This 9-strong band unifies rap, brass and beats, delivering potent, political lyrics for a post-2016 world. The Moods will make you dance, and then they'll make you think. Born out of a musical experiment in North Manchester's Boomshack Studios in early 2014, The Moods quickly gathered members and momentum. A dizzying amalgamation of producers and poets, they swiftly honed their very own sound, which, when taken live, quite simply blew their audiences away. It wasn't long before they attracted the attention of local radio stations and journalists like John Robb and Terry Christian, too.

The Moods ended 2016 on an absolute high, with raucous, sell-out gigs in London, Glasgow and Manchester. As the world reflected on the travesty that was 2016, The Moods channelled their energy into writing and performing their vital, mighty music
