Album Notes
Formed in 2007, MOLICE is a quartet with a sound that's difficult to pin down. Elements of '70s punk energy, '80s new wave sensibility, and '90s college radio guitar all get mashed in there, topped with gutsy female vocals. Molice quotes The Velvet Underground, The Doors, and The Pixies among their influences, along with The Police (from whom their name is partially formed) and a number of other bands from different eras and genres, so let's just say they have things covered from the '70s forward.
The point is, they rock hard, and have a sound that is uniquely their own. The band is fronted by vocalist Rinko, who also plays guitar, and supported by an incredibly tight guitar, bass, and drum lineup, led by Yuzuru Takeda's searing guitar. After gigging around the Tokyo area for a few months after forming, to wide acclaim, MOLICE was tapped for a slot in August 2007 at Japan's high profile Summer Sonic music festival, which features top Japanese bands (established as well as up and coming) along with international headliners.
The band has released multiple demos and videos which, along with constant gigging, has won them a strong indie fan base and led up to the November 2008 release of their first record, entitled "Doctor Ray". They continue to play out often, always easy to identify by their matching MOLICE t-shirts and Rinko's unique, attention-demanding stage presence, and it's not hard to believe they are on the verge of a breakthrough.
