Moby Rich

HOT TICKET: Moby Rich are coming to Brooklyn Steel on October 29th opening for Matt Maeson and in support of their recent release of their single “Loser” which will be featured on the upcoming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Soundtrack in theaters October 15th.


LA two-piece Moby Rich turn melancholy song craft into bold, pop hooks and visuals. The pair—Maxwell Joseph and Connor Pledger—relocated to LA in 2015 from Indianapolis and Atlanta respectively in search of, well, anything. In a moment of synergy, Connor began attending open mic nights around the town in which Maxwell was living. The pair serendipitously met, began writing together, and realized an identifiable sound between the two them. Writing the majority of their tracks on acoustic guitar, they sing every song in unison, a sort of whole-is-greater-than-the-sum-of-parts attitude, which speaks volumes of their close, almost twin-like, friendship. The first insight into Moby Rich’s unique sound comes in the shape of their 2018 breakout hit, “Yoko Ono,” a melancholy pop banger that combines the euphoria of early MGMT with the laidback beat making of N.E.R.D, which was featured on their debut, Our First EP. Following an Australian tour with BROODS and a set of debut headlining shows in New York and Los Angeles earlier this summer, the duo released their follow up Our First Second EP in June, which features their singles “Oil Spill” and “Sabotage.”
