moa1-13  by Shoot the band

Last month, Moa Bones released the ‘Spun‘ LP. Now, he’s put out a new video for ‘Hey’, where the confident words of a Man playing the Love game, can collide harshly with the natural awkwardness of reality. Wishful thinking and imagination blend together in a struggle with archetypes, while Moa Bones lays his passionate manifest of love and optimism to The Woman. The video directed by Yorgos Garefalakis premiered on Exclaim! earlier this morning.

Athens based singer/songwriter Dimitris Aronis (aka Moa Bones) combines classic folk tunes with a playful modern aesthetic. His second full album, ‘Spun’, released by Inner Ear Records on 25th of May. Moa Bones has produced the whole album, the sound of which returns again to the familiar paths of homemade and lo-fi aesthetics, like his early demos. 9 tracks of true indie-folk trendsetting and painfully self-conscious lyrics. ‘Spun’ was recorded in his room, during fall 2014. ‘Spun’ is an experiential album influenced from country music, the blues and American singing-songwriting of the 60’s.

Moa Bones – Spun LP

Moa Bones by Thodoris Markou

Athenian indie-folk musician Moa Bones (aka Dimitris Aronis) is set to release his sophomore album ‘Spun’ on Cd and digital in May 25th and on vinyl in June 2015 via Inner Ear Records.

The young Athenian singer is the most interesting and promising folk musician in Greece today. 9 tracks of true indie-folk trendsetting and painfully self-conscious lyrics. ‘Spun’ was recorded in his room, during fall 2014. Moa Bones has produced the whole album, the sound of which returns again to the familiar paths of homemade and lo-fi aesthetics, like his early demos. ‘Spun’ is an experiential album influenced from country music, the blues and American singing-songwriting of the 60’s. Traveling, new experiences and unexpected meetings in recent years have taken the form of vortex and adventure for the artist. He lives and rotates within this, exploring the way to the light. All these experiences were the inspiration for the songs of the album that at times are self-psychoanalytic and sometimes express passions, desires and wishful thinking, as extracts of a five-year mini autobiography.
