Moses Gold is the creative vision of Manchester’s Phill Young. Formed in 2013 after the dissolution of his previous project, the critically acclaimed Christian AIDS/Stay+, Young re-emerged with some of the most extraordinarily heart-rending and beautiful music that the city has ever heard. Working with producer Ben Pearson (Espher) the wounded baritone of Young’s voice glows against a sparkling electronic backdrop. Vivid and visceral, Young’s expression of loneliness and regret is littered with melancholy and tiny glimpses of hope. Confrontational, but more emotionally than physically, he’s been described as “Ian Curtis trapped in a 21st century nightmare.”

Debut single ‘Paradise Lost’ features a collaboration with former bandmate and friend London based producer Stay Positive (Black Butter, RAMP, OWSLA). Young, who has previously spoken with unerring honesty about his long-term battle with depression, wants to create music people “can relate to and respond to.  Not enough singers do that.”  After leaving his previous band it was vital for Young to continue to make music to challenge himself and his audience. Enter Moses Gold, meaning “Prophet of Greed” whose début single ‘Paradise Lost’ is a huge statement of intent and the first step in achieving the ambitious goal Young has set himself “to write an album as beautiful as ‘Kid A’ or as honest as ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space’. ‘Paradise Lost’  is released March 10th on limited edition 12″ vinyl.
