Hannah Moule & the Moulettes String Ensemble. Hannah Moule and the Moulettes absolutely blew us away when we saw them last year at the Mount Without. Although a bit of a musical departure for us, we believe everyone should hear this amazing mixture of classical cinematic prog folk jazz!

Now embarking on the biggest musical adventure in their career so far, Hannah Moule & the band are continuing to challenge expectations with this extraordinary project. In place of a fifth album, Xenolalia is 55 pieces of music; a set of songs about communication told 5 ways for 5 ensembles: Strings, Horns, A Cappella, Electronica & Electric. An experiment in composition, collaboration & production, with full access to the project through Patreon.

From the Chamber Pop of their debut, through the prog-folk of The Bears Revenge, the cinematic expositions of Constellations & the big riffs of Preternatural, a love of string music has always been at the heart of Moulettes, led by Cellist & songwriter Hannah Moule.

“Lockdown album is an overused term but some gems are emerging. A torrent of creativity” Clash Magazine

“Radical. A charismatic and revolutionary new approach to songwriting” Louder Than War

“Unique. Delicious music” ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ – MOJO

“At times an almost algebraic complexity, it’s also playful, fun and immensely enjoyable….almost symphonic, borrowing from several different musical styles at once. Full of melodic invention, ideas, wit & imagination…. it seems to have grabbed a strand of the very fabric of creation itself and crocheted an alternate universe of the most intricate lacework” – Folk Radio
