Mumbai, 28th July 2022: After his previous releases like 12 Ways I see Myself and Please Hold Me, Moli is all set to release his next “Abstraction In The Abyss”. Abstraction In the Abyss created at Ferris Wheel studios, is a 100 percent impromptu track. It was written, composed and produced on spot at Ferris Wheel studios in under 12 hours whilst being shot parallelly. It is a psychedelic alternative jazz piece, primarily an instrumental, mostly done in just single tracking takes by music artist Moli. Abstraction is very special as when you walk into a studio with no preconceived notions or ideas and it comes out so beautifully, what’s more to be asked for. Moli goes all out on this track from the first one, from the new live series he’s going to introduce very soon. 5 instruments, 12 hours and nothing written prior, that’s the psychedelia of Abstraction in the Abyss at Ferris wheel studios.
Watch the song here:
Moli is the Moniker of India based Indie Psychedelia Artist Anmol Gupta. Moli usually likes to dwell in an experimental ambient fusion but doesn’t really stick to one genre, believing that the whole notion of segregating music to a genre is not right. Moli was born on 10th Feb 1999, and started playing the Tabla at the age of 9, further continuing over the years to diversify and play other instruments, professionally giving grade exams in the Drums. Though over the years the process of giving exams didn’t really interest him and he diverged himself into playing other instruments like the keys, saxophone, other percussion instruments, guitar, the bass etc. Moli then went ahead and played with several bands, finding them and playing with already established bands too. Later, Moli went on to produce his original music and has dwelled into a space of psychedelia, using multiple instruments like analog synths, deep bass lines, vintage drum processing etc. to find his own sound meddling between songwriting and hypnosis. Heavily inspired by Psychedelic Rock/Alternative Music, he wishes to time travel through music, in an alternate dimension of the 70’s. For Moli, it’s all about the analog warmth, the tape, saturation, the jazzy chords and honesty to music. Moli is compiling his debut album as we read, called “Retrogression Progression” A Film Concept Album
