New Roy Moller single out June 1st!

Another Man’s God, the new single from Roy Moller follows his two critically acclaimed 2014, albums on Stereogram, One Domino and My Week Beats Your Year, The latter, a tribute to Lou Reed, was described a ‘profoundly moving and inspirational’ by Gus Ironside in his five-star Louder Than War review.

Written with occasional collaborator Stevie Jackson (Belle and Sebastian), Another Man’s God first featured live in the studio on Moller’s BBC 6Music session for Marc Riley where Riley famously described Moller as ‘Scotland’s best-kept secret.’

Also a member of Jesus, Baby! fronted by Davy Henderson (Fire Engines/Sexual Objects), Edinburgh-born Moller has five solo albums, and a debut collection of poetry – Imports published by Appletree Writers’ Press, to his credit.

Another Man’s God, as recorded by Moller in his hometown of Dunbar, combines skittering, rhythms, barbed lyrics and jagged guitar. Imagine a finesse-shredding Tom Verlaine gate-crashing the Bowie/Eno sessions for Earthling.

Get a short, sharp shock of skewed jungle pop! Download Another Man’s God from Stereogram from June 1st.

My Week Beats Your Year is a vital, important work that keeps alight the flickering flame of Reed’s intelligent vision. Profoundly moving and inspirational. 10/10 Louder Than War, March 2015

A diverse LP from the acoustic strum of LP opener Capital City to the squalling guitars and celebratory organ of Captivity through the horn section on Under The Radar. As with One Domino what pulls the different elements together is Moller’s insistent melodic sense. Manic Pop Thrills, October 2014

Roy has assimilated the blueprint but built the house himself. It’s a love letter to a friend or possibly a brother, it’s from the heart and the heart don’t lie. Underdog Champions, August 2014.

There’s real wit in the lyrics, and steel guitar adds poignancy to the decrepit majesty of the title track.7/10. Uncut, August 2014

The range of songs on Roy Moller’s new album One Domino travel through time, space and the arts, speaking of the past, from Edinburgh to Berlin, from architecture to painting with a lot of poetry…Each song a story, narrated by Roy Moller, depicts a varied universe with a gift for melodic creation and interpretation. Piggledy Pop, April 2014

Perhaps the closest comparison would be a post-punk Dylan, spiked with the literate poetics of Lou Reed and Richard Hell. Following the recent devastating loss of Lou, there’s a vacancy for Poet Laureate of the misfits and outsiders; with One Domino- a strong contender for Album of the Year- Roy Moller has just staked his claim. 9/10. Louder Than War, April 2014
