In regards to our musical style – Moses the Black is not that dissimilar from what you’d expect with a more aggressive post-rock band. However, one of our unique features is that we approach our song writing more like a modern compositional piece. With heavy influence from composers like Arvo Part, Phillip Glass and Hans Zimmer, our songs tend to be long, with many intentional sections that imply a story arc. Given the lack of musical repetition, each movement carries the “story” along. It’s this narrative feature that gives the music the feel of a soundtrack and that vibe will appeal to listeners who crave longer (but not plodding or repetitive) pieces of music.
Our hope with this music rests on the belief that if we can write and record material from deep and reflective places, it can have the power to inspire exactly what is needed for the listener, regardless of where they may be coming from. We hope you enjoy this music and feel a certain empowerment because of it.
