Short previews

Full songs

For their debut album Pull & Repulsion, MOULD explores different facets of duality. This is reflected in their music, their lyrics, their artwork, and their logo.

There is but a fine line that separates the world as we see it that lies above the surface from what’s below. Just a flicker of an eye to turn what we think is real into a distorted reflection. And although some of these reflections might scare us, we need those perspectives and all our senses as well to understand our surroundings.

This album is a celebration of embracing both what attracts and what repulses us.

MOULD is a droning low-tuned five-piece from the Netherlands, merging sonic doom (Windhand) and epic sludge (YOB, Neurosis, Thou). The blend of their guitar-heavy sound with atypical/clean female and male vocals gives their music a unique sound. Call it heavy with a sparkle, massive but open, gorgeously sludgy.

Although conceived earlier by guitarists Mark de Smit and Jeska Buhmann, MOULD evolved into a full-blown guitar driven, live-playing band in 2021. After a series of live performances, their focus in 2023 was on finalizing their debut album Pull & Repulsion. Each composition portrays its own sliding landscape, evoking oppressive and absorbing atmospheres. MOULD is impatiently anticipating sharing their energy and music with devotees of slow heaviness.
