The group Moving Day will release a new album at Workshop 13 in Ware
It’s a new day for the experimental electro trio Moving Day. Not only do they have a killer debut record, “Slumber in Motion,” Moving Day is hosting a record release party at 7 p.m. on November 12 at Workshop 13 at 13 Church St., Ware.
Composed of singer Robbie Juarez, electric cellist Dylan Coffey-Moore and synthesizer Rocco Desgres, Moving Day sounds like the lost collaboration between Radiohead and Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention. Inspired by modern bands Advance Base, Nation of Language and LCD Soundsystem, as well as early synth bands Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk and Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark, Moving Day is ethereal and emotional, haunting and hallucinatory, passionate and progressive.
Self-described “synth pop for buzzkills,” Juarez’s voice shifts from spooky whispers to haunting falsetto as Desgres and Coffey-Moore together weave dreamlike sonic tapestries for the singer’s tortured and tender tales to unfold and be engulfed.
Ten years ago, Juarez and Desgres met innocently at Pioneer Valley Performing Arts, a public charter school in South Hadley. After graduating in 2018, the two formed Moving Day, experimenting with “math rock” and guitar pop before focusing on synthesizers. After Coffey-Moore took part in one of their musical experiments, it became clear that the duo needed to become a trio, and Moving Day has since been looking to the future.
Tickets are $10-$20 on a sliding scale at the door. Also, Space Camp and The Leafies You Gave Me are on the bill.
