We're very pleased to announce the signing of London-based composer, producer and pianist James Maloney. Moderna will release his debut full-length album Gaslight on July 7th - and we're sure it'll make the perfect accompaniment to your summer days!

:: 1st single + CD/Digital pre-order will be up next week ::

James studied music at Oxford University and after graduating in 2011, found his own voice in minimalist composition and songwriting, which led him to the sounds and style present on Gaslight. The album is a vibrant debut effort that is built around an old piano, accompanied by trumpet, vibraphone, glockenspiel & subtle electronics...

FEATHER BEDS: Using field recordings, samples and found sounds and a dark, melancholic undercurrent, whilst still retaining a twisted pop sensibility – Feather Beds creates music that occupies the space between fragile electronica and a shoegaze aesthetic of noise and texture. It’s music that takes influence from pop to drone to noise/art rock to folk and everything in between.
