2014 A brand new studio album release is announced for Valentines Day named :" Matters Of Mind, Body And Soul", which explores its signature, melancholic sound, as evidenced by standout tracks such as “I Close My Eyes”, " Love's On Diet" and I’ll Let You Go.”
CLAN OF XYMOX pull out all the stops and deliver energy, ideas and creativity as if they were about to release their debut album – and not their 15th studio work. „She is Falling in Love“ shines with lost melodies and vibrant electronics as if Ronny Moorings made a song with DEPECHE MODE, „Kiss and Tell“ shyly kisses the Wave era on the cheek before daring a fatal love affair with classic Goth dreaming.
" Matters of Mind, Body and Soul“ melts contrasts like these into a coherent, harmonious, passionate album that would have become one of the genre's biggest milestones 20 years ago. Yet, thanks to Ronny Moorings ingenious craft, even today this album manages to reach a goal that has long become unreachable for other contestants of this art form: To deliver a timeless, deeply emotional Gothic record.

“Kindred Spirits”, an exceptional new work from the realms of the Dutch scene founder and passionate artist.
True to its title, Moorings did not exorcise a new CLAN OF XYMOX studio album, but assembled an intimate, strongly biographic collection of cover songs that has been compiled,
recorded and visualized as passionate as was formerly only done with the legendary mixtapes of old.
After a trip into the own musical past on “Darkest Hour”, now is the time for a travel back to the artists’ musical idols, influences and soul mates – and there is a lot to discover on the way!
“Kindred Spirits” assembles eleven cover versions, entirely played,
sung and recorded by Ronny Moorings.
And what a selection it is: “Blue Monday” by NEW ORDER, “Question Of Time” by DEPECHE MODE, “Decades” by JOY DIVISION,
“A Forest” by THE CURE or “Alice” by THE SISTERS OF MERCY may be songs one would have expected on Ronny Mooring’s perennial playlist anyway;
the manner in which he reawakens these tracks to a new CLAN OF XYMOX life, however, astounds and enthuses more than was deemed possible.
Warm, organic, somewhere between wavy Electro and fog-clouded Goth Rock…
these honorary tributes show a completely new side of CLAN OF XYMOX – and revive immortal classics as a pleasant side effect.
More surprising is a song like RADIOHEAD’s “Creep” that even after the first listen sounds like a well-known CLAN OF XYMOX track and was most skillfully interpreted.
Pieces from DAVID BOWIE (“Heroes”, of course), SHOCKING BLUE, DEPARTMENT S, NINE INCH NAILS
as well as SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES (sung by Mojca Zunga) complete an extraordinary release brimful with emotion and nostalgia.
Not only the song selection proves that “Kindred Spirits” is far from a profane cover album –
also the almost sacred character with which Ronny Moorings worked on this record stands for its special worth.
The songs chosen are of great value to him, influenced him and doubtlessly helped him through the one or the other dark hour –
in the same manner as the music of CLAN OF XYMOX did this for countless other people.
“Kindred Spirits” is an album,
as personal as an evening with Ronny Moorings and his record collection.
A lesson in soulful music – seen through the eyes of a hopeless music lover.
