Hush Moss Share New Track “Meant to Be"
Berlin-based Hush Moss today return with a new track “Meant to Be”, their first release of 2018 and taken from their forthcoming EP of the same name. The funk-inflected song features retro sax, shimmering synths, a set of romantic strings and frontman Eden’s smooth vocals that are reminiscent of R&B icons like Luther Vandross and Bobby Caldwell – adding to the tracks timeless appeal.
The inspiration for “Meant to Be” came from the desire to ‘fill hearts and as well as dancefloors’. It’s a perfect hybrid of lush, reverential instrumentation with contemporary production. They hold the kind of musical chemistry that only emanates from years of friendship.
The video, directed by Schrippe Hawaii & Pollock, was filmed on Super 8 capturing the band by the lake for the day. The sun-dappled visuals are the perfect accompaniment to the nostalgic yet wistful summer track, mythologizing the halcyon days of youth.
The single follows the success of their last offering “Clear”, an ecstatically funky number released last October, and their acclaimed 2016 album ‘It Takes a Lot’.
Hush Moss is the brainchild of Eden Mechulam. He records and performs with Dekel Adin (bass guitar), Ziv Yamin (piano, synth, organ), Chris Hill (drums), Guy Gefen (percussion), Paolo Guolo (saxophone and clarinet), Tomer Baruch (Keys) and Dean Frechtman (electric guitar).
The band, a group of high school friends, was originally conceived between Israel and Berlin. After the release of their debut album “It Takes A Lot”, the group settled in Berlin and the generous and collaborative spirit between artists in the German capital has been a catalyst for Hush Moss in reaching its current form.
Over the past year, Hush Moss toured across Europe with Alice Phoebe Lou, and Parcels, garnering a stellar live reputation and gaining a following of dedicated fans in the process. They played their first UK festivals in July 2018: Smoked & Uncut, and Brainchild. Look out for more tour dates imminently.
