The Big Moon, hailing from London, are indies most exciting new quartet. You wouldn’t have thought they have only known each other a year, appearing smooth, together and conveying effortless ease and coolness on stage. The Big Moon, formally known as simply ‘The Moon’ is lead singer Juliette Jackson’s dream child, her entire bank of music that she’s compiled over the years becoming the basis of the band when the foursome first came together last year, moving into a flat in Stoke Newington and attempting to discover their sound.
Sucker was the group’s debut single, released back in June, a guitar heavy, grunge, garage-pop track, with emotive vocals and melodic riffs; ‘I’m a sucker for you’ Jackson tails off, ending the song and seeming like an ode to some 90’s teen drama movie.
The band are set to support Ezra Furman and The Vaccines on their UK tour dates later this year, including a stint at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, along with appearing at Visions Festival in London this Saturday, sharing the stage with Fat White Family, who they claim were one of their inspirations for starting the band. They’re also one third of DIY magazine’s inaugural Neu Tour traveling all over the UK alongside VANT and INHEAVEN; make sure to check them out.
