moa moa return with new single 'Coltan Candy'.
An imperious, off piste alt-pop gem, the track expertly blends light with shade across its jaunty four minute span.
The title refers to a type of mineral that has been mined in Africa for decades, causing environmental damage while failing to uplift the surrounding population.
Recorded in quick fire time at Speedy Wunderground's South London HQ, it finds the Calder Valley group constructing something that is "darker and more direct".
Part of the label's ongoing singles series, 'Coltan Candy' is a neat piece of pop music, with some inner contradictions.
moa moa comment…
"It was scary and exciting in equal measures going into it but Dan and Lex create such a safe, encouraging creative space, and from that, we somehow came out with a moa track we're all happy with."
Tune in now.
