Message Of A Nation
Message of a Nation is the freshest head nodding Yorkshire Hip-Hop collective combining Soul, Jazz and old school positivity mixed with awkward things and & romantic affairs. Touching topics of mental health and unstable living to bring you their debut 8 track E.P ‘Finding Home, a reflection of modern times in young adults.
The Finding Home E.P is the culmination of 3 friends coming together to make music tailored for the live stage, created to make you bounce while feeling connected and just being damn fun! MOAN began writing music during February 2018 when Lucid came back to the UK after 2 years of travels, directing & music. With no home to go but an organised mind, Lucid stayed with Sean as they both began to find their feet again, in Sheffield. With the regular visits from Ben and his beats, music naturally started to happen. MOAN was born and pushed through the bad times. The E.P title came from teaching hip-hop workshops to young homeless people in Sheffield for UK charity DEPAUL.
MOAN make the type of hip hop they want to hear. No mumbles, just concise tight rhymes over PHAT beats. MOAN release their material on Lucid Behaviours own Independent record label Polar Opposites Records, a platform for the underdogs.
MOAN suite the UK’S scene and sound, filing a demand of truth, everyday situations and humbleness as the guys who tell the stories that we have all experienced and can relate to.
Wordplay Magazine – “With their debut E.P Finding Home dropping later this year, they are definitely a group to watch in 2019!”.
