Mothlite announces London show

MOTHLITE ANNOUNCES LONDON DATE 4th DECEMBER

“Mothlite transcends genre… a beguiling affair” NME

“Ethereal electronics, tribal percussion and wailing vocals climax together in massive Eighties-style hooks, while the centrepiece of the record is the hysterical, harmonic, kaleidoscopic ‘Something In The Sky’. It’s like a digital bath” Bizarre

“Whereas the weedy likes of Hurts merely borrowed the shirt cuts of Talk Talk and Tears For Fears, Mothlite have inherited the muscle and madness that flexed beneath. Pleasing and immodest.” The Guardian

Mothlite the brainchild of London renaissance man, prolific composer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel O’Sullivan, whose whose other incarnations and affinities include Ulver, Miracle, Æthenor, Grumbling Fur, Miasma & The Carousel of Headless Horses, Guapo, The Big Pink and Sunn O))), will play Birthdays in Dalston, London on 4th December to conclude their Dark Age Europa MMXII tour.

Recalling the pop deviations of Talk Talk, Brian Eno and Cocteau Twins fused with psychedelic modern composition and fusing it with an innovative, forward-thinking approach to programming and sound design, Mothlite transcend any obvious reference point and follow a most novel path of paradoxes. Love, death, death of love, self-loathing, megalomania. All dipped in a thick treacly molasses of ecstatic melody.
Mothlite will tour Europe in support of their critically acclaimed 2012 album Dark Age.
