"Absolutely wonderful. Just gorgeous."
- Janice Long, BBC
Cardiff-based singer-songwriter Ivan Moult returns with his latest collection of rich, confessional songs on new album Longest Shadow, out 20th April 2018 via Bubblewrap Collective.
The album reflects Moult’s progression through the fledglings of blissful romance into the fragmentation of embittered break- up. Each track combines Moult’s intricate guitar plucking skills with his warm, soothing vocal to create something both compelling and incredibly moving throughout. His latest single Lay Me Down revolves around the feeling of giving in to depression whilst simultaneously fighting against it. Moult’s beautifully natural vibrato soars effortlessly over the cinematic musicality to create something akin to that of Nick Drake or Jeff Buckley’s distinctive songwriting charm.
Since releasing his debut EP The Mine Canary in 2010 and his debut album Second Guessing in 2014, Moult has received praise from the likes of Folk Radio UK, BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson and BBC Radio Wales to name but a few. No stranger to the live circuit, Moult has also supported acclaimed artists such as Willy Mason and This Is The Kit and will be playing a number of UK shows and festivals over the coming months.
