The Moles are a five-piece band based in Kent, UK, playing new-wave, post-punk rock and pop covers from the 70s and 80s.
Formed in 2013, the band were originally known as Moroccan Mole but rebranded in 2022 to simply “The Moles” (a name their fans naturally referred to them as anyways). The band was born from the core of “The Retrophonic Archive”, another popular local covers band, before reinventing themselves with a new singer and brand new style.
With over 300 gigs under their belt, the band have become well known for their tight rocky sound, unique set list, full four-part harmonies, and a frontman in Carl that you can’t take your eyes off for a second. Couple that with a decent sound and lighting setup, and that’s why the Moles are one of the most popular bands on the local pub and festival circuit of Kent.
Key to their popularity is the choice of songs that feature in the show. The band’s mission is to cover songs popular enough that everyone knows and loves them, but not played by other local bands. Sure they stick to an era, and if you’re of a certain age it’ll be like re-living your glory days, but fans of any age know quality music when they hear it. If you’re in to the likes of Bowie, Queen, Talking Heads, Blondie, Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Steely Dan and Peter Gabriel then this is for you.
The Moles are: Carl (lead vocals), Banksy (keys), Johnny (guitar), Jacko (bass) and Craig (drums)
