“With a drum beat that just keeps on going, it’s hard not to enjoy the Northampton band’s most recent output.” Artrocker

“…the quality of the harmonies, the instrumentation and most importantly the songs – is high, and remains so throughout…” NME

The Moons return with their second single ‘Body Snatchers’ on 23rd June via Schnitzel Records.

 Taken from their new album ‘Mindwaves’, ‘Body Snatchers’ is big, brash and tuneful with thunderous drums and a kaleidoscopic driving beat at its core. An escapade into classic science fiction B-movie territory, the seductive track combines haunting and flamboyant electronics which compliments the rhythm section.

Bringing plenty of vigour, the exuberant and infectious pop/rock n roll tune flaunts their versatile and rousing nature for writing vibrant songs.

Formed in Northampton 2010, The Moons is the ideas of singer/guitarist/songwriter, Andy Crofts. With two critically acclaimed albums to date, ‘Life On Earth’ (2010) and ‘Fables of History’ 2012 (produced by The Moons and Stan Kybert), The Moons are purveyors of the great British pop song.

Lauded by The Kinks’ Dave Davies and The Zombies’ Rod Argent, they have performed live on the BBC for the Janice Long and Mark Lamarr shows and their incessant touring has seen them build a loyal fanbase with sell-out shows up and down the country including the 100 Club, London.

“Mindwaves is a melting pot of melody, love, dreams and nightmares. Its every brick my mind has built over the years, it’s my favourite album!” Andy Crofts / The Moons.

Crofts’ songwriting craftsmanship deals with typical modern day life. With a mixed melting pot of melody, texture and influence, The Moons are honest songwriting personified with exquisite arrangement and glorious production which harks back to a golden era in classic songwriting.

The Moons are Andy Crofts (vocals/guitar), Ben Gordelier (drums), Ben Curtis (bass) and Chris Watson (guitar).
