Japanese band The Molice will play in Pittsburgh on May 18 as part of their US tour. The band describes itself:
While many Japanese bands are the product of management hired producers and stylists, Molice are the band’s own unique brew of rock. Drawing inspiration from 70’s punk’s DIY spirit, 80’s new wave stylish power pop and 90’s unchained indies guitar rock, the band has hammered out their own sound. Their name draws on a number of musical inspirations as well- the Police, and the “mo” of Jim Morrison, Mo Tucker, and Morissey.
The band cites the Pixies, Police, and Doors as their main inspirations, but incorporate elements of goth, classical, dance, shoegaze,and post-hardcore as well. Listening to the range of music on albums challenges fans to completely define their style.
The Molice is joined by Y La Bamba, Garter Shake, and Boiled Denim. The show starts at 9:00; Howlers is located at 4509 Liberty Ave. in Bloomfield (map).
