Ghosts and Snow

The artist Layla Holzer has been hard at work creating a music video for the upcoming release of a Moth Rah track. The song is a narrative tale of ghosts, lives lost and despair in a snow covered world. Every character from the song has been handcrafted for the video by Layla.

Filming took place this last weekend. Layla collaborated with her artist partner Spike Dennis in shooting the video in their living room which they transformed into a land of snow and ice.



















The Elder Tree, shown here, is at the dark heart of the song's narrative and also the title of the track. The puppets have been created from paper, tape and paper mache with plastic eyes and flaxan hair. I love the exquisite detail of their outfits from the coloured buttons to the handmade leather shoes.



















































The landscape has been created from driftwood collected by Layla and Spike from their local beach. Texture shots and green screen are some of the effects being utilised to create ghostly, haunting images.


Looking forward to sharing both the track and video :-)

What's that sound?!

Harry 'Dream' Dean came to help out in the studio the other night. The result was a collection of recorded abstract sounds to be used for psychedelic music making purposes (specifically for an Alice in Wonderland inspired track I'm working on) - and also these very murky photos.

Me playing a star

Harry has a solo album coming out later this year which I'm singing on too. It's a mind bending, cosmic pop experience which I really can't wait to share!

Here's a Harry classic:

Cassandra's Dream by Daria Hlazatova


A new Moth Rah inspired portrait by Daria Hlazatova. From next week it will be on show at the Prisma group exhibition in San Francisco.

I'm very happy to be going there in portrait form but I do wish I could be there in person too.

Seeking One Who Plays the Drums


























I'm looking for a drummer to record  and perform with.

Confidence with both electronic drums and acoustic is required.

Availability for recording and rehearsing in London is necessary.

A sympathy for the gothic and theatrical would be ideal.

Does this sound like someone you know?
