Mount Moriah recently stopped by our studio to play us a few songs off of their new album, How To Dance. The North Carolina band is signed to Chapel Hill-based Merge Records, and has a clear regional influence in their sound. Composed of Heather McEntire, Jenks Miller and Casey Toll, the band’s newest album explores mysticism and the cosmos while keeping their traditional Southern sound.
We’ve had our eye on Mount Moriah for quite some time. We knew they were something special, so we included them as a Best of What’s Next band in 2013. Since then, they’ve matured to a group that boldly pushes personal boundaries to dig into untapped themes and arrangements.
Mount Moriah is about to embark on an intensive tour. The dates can be found here.
