The Big Moon Announce UK + EU Live Dates for December 2023
Taken From Upcoming Deluxe Version of Third Album Here Is Everything
Following a storming summer of festivals, including a packed slot at Glastonbury in June, The Big Moon have announced a run of UK + EU shows for December this year. The tour kicks off in Genk on 5th December, taking in Paris, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol and Oxford, finishing up at London’s Union Chapel for a very special stripped-back performance on 18th December.
The London quartet have also released new track ‘Summer Still Comes’, a stunning waltzing synth-led rumination that further showcases the band’s innate ability to write smart, sharp alt-pop triumphs. The track is taken from the upcoming deluxe version of Here Is Everything, due for release on 13th October (the first anniversary of Here Is Everything)which will also include a further bonus track ‘Round Forever’, which features lead vocals from bassist Celia Archer, and remixes from Marika Hackman and Art School Girlfriend.
Juliette Jackson on the track –
“It’s a song about longing for your friends and loved ones. Experiences just don’t really mean anything to me unless I can share them with someone else. And the changes of the seasons feel so relentless and unforgiving when your life isn’t moving at the same speed.”
The track starts off with this atmospherical charm and gentle harmonies that sway the movement. A jarring intensive push to the percussion and the complex yet mighty instrumentation join and provide this explosive shift to the exploration. Juliette’s compelling vocal notes calm the musicians and bring movement and emotion to the voyage. The track allows this volatile melody to shine throughout the intoxicating movement of this release, it’s unpredictable yet so warm, intimate yet completely connectable. Marching shuffles and meandering softness, a track that captures the power of this outfit.
Here is Everything documented the arrival of that baby in real time, and the simultaneous arrival of a new mother, full of excitement and fear. Meanwhile, the rest of the band doubled-down in the studio, taking Jules’ embryonic song frameworks and stepping forward as one, revelling in an innate, giddy togetherness and with a clutch of genuinely fantastic tunes.
Here Is Everything was mostly self-produced, with the expert guidance and expertise of co-producers CECIL (Self Esteem, Jehnny Beth, PJ Harvey) and the Grammy Award winning producer Ben Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Deer Hunter, and the producer of Walking Like We Do).
