11th March 2016 marks the release of Luneworks, the much anticipated debut album by 22-year old Dublin-based musician and producer, Jack Colleran, A.K.A MMOTHS. The follow-up to MMOTHS EP (2012) and Diaries EP (2013) was entirely written, composed, produced and performed by Colleran and will be available on Because Music/OYAE.
Luneworks was created during a period of personal upheaval for Colleran, who headed out to a friend’s tiny spare room in L.A with just a laptop and a few changes of clothes. What ensued was an intense month of twelve hour night-time writing and recording sessions, where Jack sought to isolate himself in order to keep the songs as pure as possible. The quietness of the city at night was a real inspiration, and the constraints of an alien environment proved something of a liberation.
The ancestral, ethereal spirit of Ireland is also present throughout Luneworks. Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), one of Dublin’s most famous sonic outliers, is a noted influence – another musician who has wrung sweet emotion out of chaotic noise.
The result is Luneworks, a fully immersive head-trip; a record that is at times brutal and at others unbearably beautiful; sometimes in the overlap of a single track.
Luneworks is a mirror to the soul – a gorgeous, wordless expression of unedited, unfiltered emotion, heralding the arrival of one of the most important electronic artists of our generation.
