It’s always brave taking on a classic, but new Brighton-based singer Moya has managed to pull it off, with her soulful interpretation of Primal Scream’s ‘I’m Losing More Than I’ll Ever Have.’
The track was recorded at Perry Vale studios, by Pat Collier, who coincidentally also mixed the original song for Primal Scream. “We normally record at Alaska studios in Waterloo (where Primal Scream also recorded) but they don’t have a grand piano,” says Moya. “Pat has one at Perry Vale, so invited us there instead. He didn’t even know what we were recording until we were there, so it was a cool twist of fate.”
Taken from her upcoming Acoustic EP, this release follows her acclaimed debut single ‘Telling Tales,’ released late last year. The EP also comes with two original tracks, ‘Heroine’ and ‘On My Own’ whilst the final track is Moya’s take on John Martyn’s timeless ‘Don’t Want To Know,’ recorded live on stage at The Bedford in Balham, and backed by the guitar of Brother & Bones’ Richard Thomas.
