THE MOORS are here to bring you back to the six-string glory days of your misspent youth. Theirs is the music in that fever dream you once had---where you’re hanging out with Paul Westerberg and Alex Chilton while Joan Jett and Ric Ocasek are out back shooting pool, smoking cigarettes and watching the ’87 World Series in an old Bowery flophouse. Finally, Westerberg pulls a cassette from his pocket, looks at you, and says, “I gotta play you this.”
Formed in 2018, THE MOORS is comprised of lead singer, rhythm guitarist, and songwriter Din (Mubashir Mohi-ud-Din) and lead guitarist/producer/consigliere JP Bowersock (The Strokes, Julian Casablancas, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, Norah Jones), both of whom were previously in the band Zerobridge. Din, who was born in the UK and whose family immigrated to the US from the disputed region of Kashmir, eventually settled in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. After a chance encounter between Din and JP at the Delancey/Essex subway stop, a close friendship and musical comradery ensued. Joined by a supporting cast of seasoned NYC musicians, THE MOORS ethos is simple: just give 'em good tunes, and keep it New York AF.
