Recorded in a reclusive cabin in the Italian Alps above Lago Maggiore, the album is the result of total withdrawal from everyday life, the distraction of technology and any influence from outsiders. The album is inspired by a wide-ranging and unexpected group of influences, an eclectic mixture of Krautrock, Afrobeat, and Electronic music. Sea Moya bring a lysergic haze of electronic funk, intertwined with vocal harmonies, playful experimentation and kraut rhythms to the most thrilling effect. Filtering analogue instrumentation through tape saturation, modular systems, and a vast array of effect pedals, this psychedelic beat outfit reshapes and cuts up their original ideas, thus producing a distinctive sound that is even reflected in their in their unique aesthetic.
Following the recording of Falmenta, the band relocated to the vibrant Montreal and have embedded themselves into the thriving DIY underground there, playing shows across Canada and the US (including SXSW).
Sea Moya was formed in summer 2014 in between shipping containers in a German harbor. Current band members are David Schnitzler (Vocals), Elias Foerster (Bass), and Tilman Ruetz (Drums) + a whole lot of synthesizers.Check out what inspires them - or at least a tiny selection of it - here: MO·· YA· Listening Pleasure!
