The Moth Lantern

Summer 2012 saw indie/rock band The Moth Lantern perform the Emerging Icons Stage at The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.


“Great stuff, we like these!” Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

‘Gloriously wonderful acoustic rock with a cinematic edge, The Moth Lantern are a beguiling proposition.’ Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6 Music

‘Quirky, moody yet tuneful and with chord changes to prick the ear at every turn’ Stuart Maconie, BBC Radio 2

COMFORT’ I’m so sweet on this track it ain’t even funny! A terrifically understated voice. A tonic.’ Pete Donaldson, Absolute Radio


The indie/rock band continues to delight crowds with fun energetic sets, contrasted by original potent ballads, written by band’s guitar virtuoso, Dan Clark. Jo Clark (keyboard and vocals) adds glamour and dynamism to the group, while drummer Eddie George provides the throbbing beats which underpins the unique Moth Lantern sound. Jason Rungapadiachy’s powerful vocals and bass are a compelling proposition, adding integrity and depth, as can be clearly heard on “ARMOUR’ and the hugely popular ballad ‘COMFORT’. Persoanlly, I know how busy they are because when they sent the media kit via email, Dan started the email with “Sorry this is late, I’ve been working my ass off.” Understandably so…

Emerging Icons Review
“Our favourite Lincolnshire awesome sausages have a brand new EP available on their Emerging Icons profile – a treat for us as much as it is for you. With four tracks, plenty of lovely rich instrumentation and Jason’s effing gorgeous voice- you need to get this in your life. While ‘The Nightmare Is Just Beginning’ leads you into a vast, epic atmosphere with touches comparable to early ‘Shiver’-ing Coldplay. We still stay in touch with the more playful side of the band with ‘Dog’- stuttering guitar and introductory woofing giving a completely different vibe.
Creative experimentation with the effects and sounds that can be produced through bass and beat provide an additional signature to that lead vocal – which remains the centre piece of The Moth Lantern experience. Get yourself comfy and savour this one cos it’s a beaut.”
