Year of The Moons.

Tipped by HMV as 'one of the best new bands of 2010', The Moons have had a bumper year.

Life On Earth
Torn Between Two

Fronted by Paul Weller’s keyboard player, Andy Crofts, the band craft soulful slices of classic English pop. Taking a traditional 60’s sound and weaving in influences as diverse as XTC, The Beatles and The Specials.
Nightmare Day

Let It Go

The band toured heavily, supporting Ocean Colour Scene and Paul Weller at the Isle of Wight. Not surprising Paul Weller has proved a big supporter, inviting The Moons to record an acclaimed debut album, Life On Earth, at his studio and even featuring on piano on ‘Wondering”. 

'Life On Earth fizzes with ideas, pinballing from mod pop and paranoic freakbeat to  intoxicating wafts of bristling Mersey psychedelia... ' **** - Q
Everyday Heroes

Four ltd edition vinyl singles were taken from the album. Torn Between Two, Nightmare Day, Let It Go and Everyday Heroes, the later being the highlight of the group’s set.
Currently recording the second album with producer Edwin Collins, The Moons are a band to watch in 2011.
