Moshi Moshi first came across the choir in 2017 when they booked them to play Caring Is Creepy in Margate. The choir was a new thing then and a little rough around the edges (They initially wondered if it was a cover for mid-week drinking by some of Margate’s mums, and for that they sincerely apologise). It seemed like a nice idea to ask them to cover some Moshi Moshi songs to mark their 20th birthday celebrations but they never dreamed they would come out sounding as good as they have. Much of the credit for that must go to the expert guidance of choir master Hughie Gavin who arranged and directed the recordings and took these songs in some deeply moving and unexpected directions, with some additional help in the mix from Margate resident Adem Ilan. This has been one of Moshi Moshi's most joyous releases in recent years and maybe just the start of a wonderful working relationship.
