The Big Moon are one of the country’s most exciting young bands. Since bursting onto the scene last year, the Londoners have gone from strength to strength, earning comparisons to PJ Harvey, The Runaways and Haim. We like them a lot.
2016 has seen the four-piece break into mainstream consciousness, propelling them even closer to all-out domination. Their new single Formidable does such a quest no harm. It’s an anthemic post-punk foray, balancing angst and emotion with melodic aplomb. One for the live sets, most certainly.
If that wasn’t enough, the band have also released details regarding the release of their eagerly-anticipated debut album. Love In The 4th Dimension will be available via Fiction on 7th April, 2017. No rest for the wicked.
Speaking on the album, Juliet Jackson said: “We spent twelve gorgeous summer days in the studio hanging out with the brilliant producer and super babe Catherine Marks, experimenting and noodling and shredding and hitting things until all the right noises happened at once.
“We’ve been playing these songs for two years now, and it’s a dream come true to finally immortalise them on record. It’s like having eleven tiny babies all at once, all with their own little faces and voices and personalities, and now we’re ready to throw them out of our nest and into your ears.”
Formidable is short, snappy and loud. It encompasses everything that The Big Moon do, and just how well they do it. Expect to see a lot more of them as the year draws to a close.
