2013 was some year for Moderat. A hugely successful album ‘Moderat II’ (Monkeytown Records) that appeared in a whole range of  ‘end of year’ selections (including the prestigious Rough Trade year end  chart), some excellent live dates and a general consensus that we were dealing with a quite extraordinary electronica band.

2014 starts as 2013 ended. The band have today announced a new single ‘Last Time’, and an accompanying video. ‘Last Time’ is the bonus track that appeared on the deluxe edition of ‘Moderat II’. The video can be seen above.

The song celebrates it’s vinyl debut on the upcoming single, alongside an instrumental version, an alternate version and the only guest remix by Jon Hopkins, who will also support Moderat at their second Berlin show at Columbiahalle on February 27, 2014.
