The Moles are back.
The Moles have finally returned to the fold with their latest release, “Moles” and it is a damn fine album.
They have added a few new tunes to their repertoire but they have remained pretty faithful to their roots.
That is, the style of music they have grown to love over the years.
The Mole’s songs have always sounded like they could be a classic, with catchy melodies, catchy melodies and lyrics that make you want to dance to every single one.
The songs were always the most memorable part of the Mole shows, and they remain one of the most beloved acts of the 80s and 90s.
So, how did the MOLES come back into the limelight?
The answer to that question is simple.
Their bandmates, Jools Holland and Nicky Jam are now touring with the Mola Girls.
The Mola Boys (Jools Holland, Nicky, and Tim) had a solid run with the bands’ previous album, “Naughty New World” and “The Moltons,” but “MOLES” has a completely different feel.
The lyrics and melodies are much more subdued and mellow, with the focus being more on the songs themselves.
In addition to Jools and Nick, the Molas have a new member in Tim.
Tim was a member of The Moltonz in the early 1990s and is still active today.
A few years ago, Tim had the opportunity to sit down with Jools in their recording studio and talk about their experience making the Moltz album.
Tim spoke about the difference he and Jools made in their lives after the band broke up, the importance of songwriting and the importance to him of writing and performing for the fans.
“I think we’re very lucky to be in the business, because you have to be a part of it,” Tim said.
“If you don’t write songs for the songs, the songs don’t exist.
You’ve got to write songs that resonate with the fans, and then you’ve got the songs that don’t.”
“MOLEs” is the Mollies first album since 1995 and was released in 1997.
There are some tracks that seem to be inspired by their former band members.
Jools, for example, has some verses in the first two tracks that are reminiscent of “Trouble in Paradise,” but he also references his former bandmates on “I’m Not Going to Take It Anymore.”
There is also a new instrumental song, “I Wish You Would,” that could easily be considered a direct homage to their first two albums.
“Moles” has an overall upbeat feel to it, but the Moliess songwriting is also at its best.
It feels like a good time to be on tour and a great time to sing.
It also makes sense that the Molls are still in the spotlight in their 20s.
They are still doing live shows, performing on radio shows, having their own music videos, and being featured on TV shows.
And they are still performing.
At the end of the day, there are so many reasons why people love to see them live, perform and write songs.
But they have always been a group that has been around for 20 years.
And now, they are back in the limo.
MOLIES is out now on Amazon.
