Listen to new Manchester Orchestra song ‘The Moth’

You can listen to one new Manchester Orchestra song before the band release their new album ‘A Black Mile To The Surface‘ on July 28th. And this is it.

Following on from ‘The Gold‘ and ‘The Alien‘ comes ‘The Moth‘. Enjoy, it’s lovely.

“We’re a band that loves to use heavy, crunchy guitars,” says Andy Hull. “We wondered how we could limit the use of that, so that when the guitars come in they can be creative and impactful. For Swiss Army Man we had to make seventy minutes of music with our hands tied behind our backs. When you’re creating all the sounds you need just from the human voice, it allows you to rethink what is possible, and determine what is really needed. We wanted to make an album in a ‘non-Manchester’ way if there is such a thing.”
