Hello Moth ~
Hello Moth brings a mesmerizing presence to the stage, ...combining pop sensibilities with unearthly sounds and intriguing musicality in songs that surprise and charm listeners. Warm, passionate vocals contrast with the cold, digital tones of a synthesizer to create a sound that is at once soulful and soulless. In each riveting performance, Hello Moth spins musical layers over each other in loops to form elaborate patterns. The result is powerful and unexpected, as the audience witnesses the solitary musician become a haunting orchestra of one.
