The Royal Belgian Conspiracy Present Their New Single From Forthcoming Album
Hailing from Melbourne/Canberra, The Royal Belgian Conspiracy present their new single ‘The Programming Is Wrong’, being the third single from their upcoming debut album ‘Ghosts & Whispers’. The Programming Is Wrong is another indie folk-pop gem which blends lead singer Moozy’s questioning lyrics with dark textures, strings, percussive twists and haunting harmonies. Each verse changes gear taking you on a beautiful unexpected ride. A beautifully crafted song. ‘The Programming Is Wrong’ is well poised to build upon the success of The Royal Belgian Conspiracy’s first two singles and the incoming debut album ‘Ghosts & Whispers’
A blend of Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, The Milk Carton Kids and Gregory Alan Isakov. Moozy’s voice has a vulnerability which draws the listener in. The song explores the notion of waking up one day and realising that you are in a very different place to where you thought you would ever be, something akin to waking up inside your dreams and being stuck there. It is in many ways a reflection on the reality that our lives never really turn out as we thought they would, that unexpected turns always await us and the way forward is not always clear.
“I wanted to write a song that takes listeners on a ride, with every verse having a different feel whilst remaining true to the melody and mood of the song. The song is about waking up one day and realising that you are in a very different place to where you thought you would ever be, something akin to waking up inside your dreams and being stuck there”.
No stranger to the industry, his father was a ‘one hit wonder’ with Belgium single 'Savez-Vous Danser Sans Souliers', never to release another track. Watching his father dance around and play guitar growing up sparked an interest in music for Moozy as well deciding to get his start at age nineteen. Cutting his teeth busking in the London Underground, often just playing Oasis’s Wonderwall on repeat whilst drunk passers-by sang along. Performing in front of some many people so early on shook the nerves out of him. With roots in Belgium the singer now lives in Australia after migrating with his family at a young age.
