New Album Ready Coat Out Now
Philadelphia rockers, Mo Lowda & The Humble are exclusively premiering the music video for their single “Pearls” via Atwood Magazine.
“Pearls” is off of the band’s recent record, Ready Coat, released earlier this year, which is available now across all streaming services.
“‘Pearls’ was the obvious choice for the album opener and the featured single: straightforward in its structure, yet clever in its execution. Its catchy nature and bouncy rhythm section provide for a head-nodding listening experience. Vocally, it sits right in my wheelhouse/range, while the lyrical content focuses on something many people have likely dealt with at some point in their lives: distance from a lover. Intricate drums and thick layers clear up just in time for a sparse, singable chorus, while an expansive bridge and orchestral instrumental section take the song home into its final guitar refrain,” shares lead vocalist, Jordan Caiola.
Mo Lowda & the Humble began with three high school kids. Those kids all ended up at the same college in Philadelphia, PA where other kids wanted them to play at their basement parties all the time. So, they did. All the time. They are no longer kids. Three full-length albums (2013, 2018, 2020) and an EP (2016) later, Mo Lowda & the Humble now average 100+ tour dates a year, nationally and internationally, including festivals like Firefly, Peach Fest, Mountain Jam, and more.
Over the past year, between playing said number of shows and utilizing four different studios, the band was able to craft Ready Coat with a more textural and thoughtful approach, as opposed to their previous rock material. The instruments trade-off, the layered vocals weave in and out, and space is utilized to provide the power that used to be occupied by aggressive distorted guitars. Lyrically, these are the band’s most honest songs to date, vulnerably taking a candid approach about the current chapter of their lives: touring/adjusting to life at home, love/lack thereof, independence /loneliness, complacency/ambition, loss.
Ready Coat is out now. For more information, please visit http://www.molowda.com/.
