Al Moses release new single 'Gutter Rock Moxie'

Young, exciting and rebellious - the Welsh punk-rockers Al Moses release their new single Gutter Rock Moxie, today, 10th of June 2020 via Big Indie Records (Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard, Eliza Shaddad, Weird Milk).

After releasing the venerating single ‘He Truly is the Son of God’ which received praise from the likes of Tom Robinson (BBC 6Music), John Kennedy (Radio X), Adam Walton (BBC Radio Wales), So Young Mag and Gigwise, Al Moses return with another fresh single ‘Gutter Rock Moxie’, showing their versatility with an upbeat stonker charged-on-moxie and fuelled by nostalgia.

"It really makes you miss live music...Definitely one for throwing the pint glass in the air and going crazy” - John Kennedy on ‘He Truly is the Son of God’

Gutter Rock Moxie is the first song co-frontmen, Jack and Daf wrote together, back in 2016. From Pentre Bach to Cardiff Central, the song describes the train journey the two would take to and from each other’s houses every week, as they dreamt of forming a band together.

“The song captures the ambition and fearlessness that we’ve always had since we were young, from writing songs ‘on the edge of the bed’, to playing around small venues like we are now. In a way the song is the story so far, but also laying down a marker for everything that’s still to come.”

Al Moses formed when co-frontmen Jack Vill and Daf Thomas met at a house party where they discovered a mutual love for The Jesus And Mary Chain and Manic Street Preachers. Regularly travelling by train between their hometowns of Merthyr and Cardiff, Jack and Daf used this time to focus their writing on the history of where they come from, blending scathing social commentaries from their personal experiences with their own style of anthemic indie rock familiar to their country’s rich history of predecessors. Jarvis Morgan joined them on bass and Raychi Bryant on drums to complete the four-piece. The band pride themselves on their raw sound and a fascination for poetry and songwriting.

Gutter Rock Moxie, out on 10 June 2020, is the second track of a Series of Singles being released this year via Big Indie Records.
