Black Moth Super Rainbow is an American experimental band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Their music contains elements of psychedelia, folk, electronica and pop. Their distinctive sound is characterized by analog electronic instuments including the vocoder, Rhodes piano and Novatron.

This is how they describe themselvs: “Deep in the woods of western Pennsylvania vocoders hum amongst the flowers and synths bubble under the leaf-strewn ground while flutes whistle in the wind and beats bounce to the soft drizzle of a warm acid rain. As the sun peeks out from between the clouds, the organic aural concoction of Black Moth Super Rainbow starts to glisten above the trees.”

The members of BMSR got the lovely names of Father Hummingbird, Tobacco, Power Pill Fist, The Seven Fields Of Aphelion and Iffernaut.  Some of the members also got their soloprojects going, please check out Tobacco´s latest album “Fucked Up Friends” and Power Pill Fist´s album “Kongmanivong”.
