The Moons – Life On Earth

NAME: The Moons
ALBUM: Life On Earth
YEAR: 2010 (15th March)
LABEL: Acid Jazz
RATING: 4/5

FIVE WORD REVIEW: Defo worth a second play (and third, and fourth and fifth…)

LOCATION: Orbiting Earth (but currently within the Earth’s atmosphere touring the UK).

LINE UP: Andy Crofts – Vocals and guitar, Chris Ketley – Guitar and vocals, Ben Gordelier – Drums, Adam Leeds – Bass, James Bagshaw – Keys and vocals.

WHAT’S THE STORY?: A perhaps seemingly unlikely pairing of ex-Rakes members and Paul Weller’s keyboard player, The Moons formed back on 2007 creating a sound that “straddles the decades”, and it does just that.

Video for ‘Torn Between Two’, fourth track on the album.

SOUNDS LIKE: the kind of bop-along-rock that you all love featuring the familiarity of unfortgotten favourites intwined within each track. A particular favourite being track 5 on the album – Nightmare Day – with elements The Specials, two-tone, spindly Ghost Townyness spliced with the unique sound of 90’s band Space.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF YOU LIKE: The Coral-Zuton-Bees-esque sound of indie mock rock.
