about

The self-titled, Moodie Black EP, marks the band's debut release on Fake Four. A band birthed in the deserts of Arizona, forged by a friendship since childhood, Moodie Black (formerly GAHEDiNDIE) have been blazing a trail in the the unfamiliar and exciting world of noise rap for the last several years. Moodie Black's EP arrives two years after the most recent full-length album, Sana Sana, earned them public attention as pioneers and innovators of hip-hop. On the five-track album, Moodie Black have resurfaced with the most polished and mature genre-melting material to-date. Preserving the beautiful and devastating noise for which the duo is best known, they have placed an emphasis on mood and melody that speaks volumes of the ever-evolving and innovative nature of the band.

The band's front, K. (C.Martinez), takes a commanding approach to emceeing and production in this newest release. A very capable lyricist and live performer, K. puts his penchant for original lyrics and monstrous production in the spotlight, stepping out as one of the most unique vocalists and producers in the scene today. The beats are pulsating, expansive, dark, tribal, yet contemporary and industrial. Synths and pulsating drums meet distortion and Robert Smith-esque hooks. Moodie Black make no apologies for their unorthodox approach to every aspect of the sound and live performance.

K. says of the album, "The words draw on ancient human beliefs clashing with the present air space of human breath. Moodie Black continues to charge into uncharted territory and maintain our reputation for being authentic. We draw upon and speak about the human experience."

Some have described Moodie Black as less rap and more something else. Others describe them as the "Nine Inch Nails of Rap". Most would agree, however, that Moodie Black is something extremely unique and sonically devastating. On this release the band have carved out a comfortable introduction into their world of infinite noise. The album features an appearance from Ceschi Ramos and contributions from David Norbert (drums), and Sean Lindahl (Guitar).
