MOY today shares their latest single ‘At My Door’. It demonstrates the bands versatility, offering something again different to ‘No Talk’s The Best Chat’ and their debut ‘Start Me Up’.
Opening with a lurching stop-start riff and full of loud-and-quiet dynamics, ‘At My Door’ feels like a modernised hybrid of the ‘90s lo-fi indie scene and grunge. The vocals on this track amplifies those contrasts, building from the softly vulnerable verses into a full-throated hook. It’s a cathartic way to express lyrics which focus on a relationship with an uncertain status.
“At My Door was written about escapism, a chance encounter with someone significant who takes you to a new place, wanting to return and when you can’t, the reflection and understanding of the truth that is staring you right in the face. that you can’t go back. It was the first song we wrote this year with all of us in the same room, pre-Covid.” says MOY.
In the space of just three singles, MOY have emerged as an intriguing proposition. Sharing few details of their background has given them a mysterious, enigmatic quality. But their eloquent wordplay, charismatic performance and distinctive visuals all shine through, suggesting that there’s much more to be discovered.
