Moshi Moshi are about to release the debut EP of the fantastically named Lula and the Lampshades. Cold Water will be released on Valentine’s Day, and as you would expect from Moshi Moshi, the four piece band make off-kilter, yet whimsical music that is rooted in folk and calypso.
Formed in 2009, the four piece is made up of Luisa (vocals, ukulele, percussion), Heloise (violin, harp, vocals, percussion, bass), Jemma (bass, guitar, vocals) and Dan (drums, vocals, guitar).
With a rapturous show at last year’s Bestival and 12 months of honing their craft in London’s live circuit, the band are now set to ready to unleash their first record. With influences veering from Ennio Morricone to the Carpenters with a healthy dollop of Gospel along the way, their sound is utterly unique in the current landscape of bass, rude boys and an ongoing house revival.
Moshi Moshi will release Cold Water as a 7” single / digital release on February,14th 2011.
