MODERAT ANNOUNCE ‘MORE D4TA,’ SHARE NEW SINGLE “FAST LAND”
Created largely during a time when touring (and most travel) was off the table, MORE D4TA wrestles with feelings of isolation and information overload that have become particularly pronounced over the past two years. The ten songs on MORE D4TA are rooted in collaboration, but long before any of its tracks were laid down Moderat spent months getting musically reacquainted, indulging in extended bouts of experimentation and slowly fleshing out ideas as they dove into modular composition, field recordings, and other sonic oddities. Many of its lyrics are rooted in Ring’s frequent trips to Berlin’s Gemäldegalerie museum (often with his infant daughter in tow), where he’d seek refuge in the great paintings of the past while worrying about the future.

I’m totally happy to speak openly about my abortion and feel very privileged to have accessed it easily and for free on the NHS in the UK. This should be the case everywhere but abortion is illegal, expensive and / or hard to access in many places around the world.

When asked about the video, SYML explains, “When I wrote ‘Sweet Home,’ I was feeling nostalgic. What’s interesting is that it was a pretty generic sort of nostalgia. As I spent more time with the song, and what the video might be, it occurred to me that as we grow, our concept of home grows with us. Home will always be some mythical combination of places and people from our past that never stops changing, which makes nostalgia tricky.
