The track will feature on his forthcoming album ‘Music Ruined My Life’
Dutch artist Moods has unveiled new single ‘Music Saved My Life’, out 24th September on Kraak & Smaak’s Boogie Angst label.
Recorded live in the city of Leiden with a full band during the peak of the pandemic, ‘Music Saved My Life’ ebbs and flows around supple grooves, delicate guitar licks and a touch of brass – a combination that reiterates the project’s soulful jazz influences. It follows recent single ‘Sinner’ featuring Nic Hanson, with both tracks set to feature on Moods’ forthcoming album, playfully titled Music Ruined My Life.
“‘Music Saved My Life’ is about the profound joy that creating music brings me from time to time,” Moods explains. “It can give me a vibe that I can’t get anywhere else and is honestly hard to put in words. All I know is my purpose seems to be found in music at that moment. The goal was to translate that feeling and vibe, those moments in your life where u realise everything is in the right place and things are good.”
Drawing influences from acclaimed instrumental hip-hop titans such as Pete Rock, J Dilla and Nujabes, Moods is moniker of Rotterdam-based producer Nick Lubbersen. At the intersection of electronic and contemporary R&B, his sound is based around lo-fi flavours and soulful undertones, while his well-received debut album Zoom Out has amassed more than 30 million global streams.
His second single in quick succession, ‘Music Saved My Life’ further heightens the anticipation for Moods’ forthcoming sophomore album.
