The Moods have released a new anthem for the times we now live in in the form of “P.O.P. (Profit over People)”. Sadly, this is more than true, but it needs to be pointed out in order to be defied. The Moods perform this task with a reverence for rebellion and a regard for history that only a true indie band can achieve. The track is 3:36 of electronic declaration and rhyming rebellion with the charisma of musical guerillas. This will put you in ‘The Moods” for a movement.

‘Wow, this is like The Specials on speed! It has the same political statement that Ghost Town had at the time of all that unrest in the early 80s. To say I love it would be the understatement of the year! It’s refreshingly different, I’ve heard nothing like it and it’s well produced too! Awesome track:-).’
