The Big Moon have been the subject of much critical acclaim thanks to their less than subtle arrival. Their first two tracks, “Eureka Moment” and “Sucker”, impressed with a tight grunge-pop vigour with plenty of bite and drama. The day after the bank holiday blues set in on the most Mondayist of Tuesdays, the all-girl London quartet have returned to inject a little life back into the week following their storming Reading & Leeds performances on the BBC Introducing stage at the weekend.
Third single, “The Road”, premiered today and it’s softer than we would’ve expected. Still with a scuzzy guitar line, the vocals are warmer and the harmonies floating around in the background help smooth The Big Moon’s sound. Overall it’s slower but in no way less encapsulating than its predecessors.
The Big Moon head out on the DIY Neu tour with Vant and Inheaven during October before support dates later in the year with Ezra Furman and The Vaccines.
