Limerick based M O S C O W M E T R O are due to release their EP ‘Spirit of A City’ on 11th April 2014. Recorded between Grove Studios, Exchequer studios and Grouse Lodge and co-produced by the band, Owen Geaney and Rob Kirwin(Glasvegas, The Horrors).

Meeting through mutual friends, the quartet’s early rehearsals took place in a storage warehouse; a ten foot by ten foot metal box that shook with sound vibrations, leading to the inspiration for the name M O S C O W M E T R O.

Described as post punk revival/shoe gaze, M O S C O W M E T R O’s music deals with the subjects we don’t talk about, the things we bury deep. Their aspiration when song writing is to connect to these subjects and try to release them. Taking inspiration from every aspect of life including films, writers, art; the band’s influences are diverse, from The National to Blade Runner, Walt Whitman to The Cure.

‘Spirit Of A City’ explores several dark themes; feeling trapped by your situation, death and loss, social tensions and escaping the aftermath of a failed relationship. Contrasting hope and fear; ‘Spirit Of A City’ is dark and brooding yet also elated and uplifting.

Having played festivals including Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and Liss Ard in Cork to name a few, M O S C O W M E T R O have also earned their stripes on the live performance scene supporting some of the best Irish and international acts such as The Futureheads, The Minutes, The Funeral Suits, Dry the River and Jape.

2014 will see M O S C O W M E T R O touring Ireland and Germany, with the possibility of further European dates and the promise of more releases.
