The Big Moon – Live!

So The Big Moon are now officially my new obsession.  I already posted about their debut album on this blog post but this week  I saw them live at the Boileroom and they were fantastic!  They were clearly having a great time and so were we.  Sound at this venue was brilliant and did justice to their performance. Juliette is a very charismatic frontwoman and its great to see bands that just completely own their songs as well as the stage.

Special mention also to Get Inuit. A great set from them as well and again all the better for their brilliant frontman, Jamie Glass.  Check them out here.

I cant stop listening to Love In The 4th Dimension and it gets better with every listen. Check out The Big Moon here , buy the album and go see them play!  (Is that enough gushing for ya?)

The Big Moon – Love in the 4th Dimension

I was watching TV the other night and a programme came on showcasing the nominees for the 2017 big moonMercury Music Prize. One band immediately caught my attention so this morning I listened to the previews on iTunes, got to the fifth track and decided it was a definite purchase. This debut album reminds me a lot of Britpop band Sleeper who I also really like. Sleeper’s lead singer Louise Wener wrote some really lyrically interesting songs which also contained catchy guitar hooks. Not to say that The Big Moon sound like a dated 90’s band. but they have a similarly pleasing and very enjoyable mix of guitars and lyrics.  They sound like they had a lot of fun recording this and I get a feeling they will be great to see live so will definitely check out their next London dates.
