The Yearning

Only When I'm Dancing

    Joe Moore is full of surprises. Every new release his name is on, whether they are his own projects (The Yearning, The Perfect Kiss, Julie Et Joe) or other people's (Lia Pamina, Cristina Quesada and Maddie Mae), gives us incredible results. Lounge music, soul, girl groups, chamber pop, French pop from the 60s... Diverse styles pass through his hands like an unstoppable song-making machine.

    What will the journey be this time? "Only When I'm Dancing", transports us to the golden age of disco music, when the dance floor was full of excitement, melancholy, elegance and majestic arrangements (something that Moore notably excels at).

    This time, the change of sound comes with a change in singer. The angelic voice of Maddie Dobie makes way for the elegance of Luci Ashbourne. Her mature, velvety voice is perfect for these sensual songs, many of which are aimed directly at the dance floor. When Joe began working on this new album, he imagined Karen Carpenter singing along with the music of Benny and Björn.

    "Never Gonna Let You Go" begins like a tribute to Barry White. "Love Has Taken Hold Of My Heart" has echoes of ABBA. Elsewhere we hear Pet Shop Boys, Bee Gees, Tina Charles and Isaac Hayes. A new album, a new surprise, a new pleasure.

    The Yearning

    Take Me All Over The World

      The untiring Joe Moore in his endless search for beauty in music, is back with a new mini-album from THE YEARNING, and addressing his usual inclinations: the chanson, chamber pop, bossa, and above all, the perfect song. And once again, he is handling all the production work, the recording, and the songwriting, and is playing almost all the instruments.

      Compilation of The Yearning's first two sold-out mini-LPs, "Jukebox Romance" and "Still In Love", plus singles and three unreleased tracks: - "Dawn", "Love Is Like A Rollercoaster" and "Dusk".

      Taking their influences from late 50s/early 60s girl-groups and Phil Spector, Joe Moore's productions are becoming more and more well-known all over the world. Their signature effusive, romantic, and elegant sixties-style pop is already a trademark.

      For fans of Dionne Warwick, Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, Dusty Springfield, Francoise Hardy and Jane Birkin.

      Second album from Joe Moore's project, The Yearning. Made and managed in his own studio, this is a personal universe that is exciting, independent, separate from any other kind of precepts in the music industry; his very own. The delicious arrangements, that romantic halo, and Maddie Dobie's fascinating voice are still heard on almost the entire album. But while the last album 'Dreamboats & Lemonade' looked to sixties pop from the most cheerful girl-group perspective, 'Evening Souvenirs' is a slow, deliberate, nocturnal album, with echoes of lounge music and "chanson", of bossa and chamber pop, with touches of Sarah and l Records melancholy, and Burt Bacharach soundtracks.

      Playing with a considerable number of instruments, and the participation of the Cotsworld Voices choir on many of the songs, we find ourselves with one of those albums that needs to be listened to in semi-darkness, where the notes are bursting to the surface, giving you goose bumps hair by hair.

      For fans of Dionne Warwick, Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, Dusty Springfield, Francoise Hardy and Jane Birkin. Vinyl is Limited edition of 500 copies on grey vinyl, with MP3 download.
