MOY’s second single No Talk’s The Best Chat elevated the growing profile of the New Zealander’s self-named Glasgow band. The band’s latest single At My Door, opens with a lurching stop-start riff and full of loud-and-quiet dynamics, like a modernised hybrid of the ‘90s lo-fi indie scene and grunge.
Moy says of the song, “At My Door was written about escapism, a chance encounter with someone significant who takes you to a new place, wanting to return and when you can’t, the reflection and understanding of the truth that is staring you right in the face. that you can’t go back. It was the first song we wrote this year with all of us in the same room, pre-Covid.”
In the space of just three singles, Moy have emerged as an intriguing proposition. Sharing few details of their background has given them a mysterious, enigmatic quality. But their eloquent wordplay, charismatic performance and distinctive visuals all shine through, suggesting that there’s much more to be discovered.
