Half Moon Run have been jamming the scene up with their unusual, etherial sounds since their first album release of “Dark Eyes” in 2012.
The deep, heavy sound of “Dark Eyes” escalated their popularity in the alternative/indie loving crowd, to the point of gaining a good following of some pretty faithful fans. From the upbeat, tribal-acoustic sound of “Full Circle”, which actually gained enough popularity to be featured on the game trailer of “Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag”; to the delicate yet soul wrenching feeling of “Fire Escape”, their first album can be considered nothing short of beautiful. And now their second album has finally arrived! Whether you’re all about chilled out, celestial kind of tunes, or you’re just trying to find your next favourite band of the indie/alternative-folk/awesome genre, Half Moon Run are the band for you, and their new album “Sun Leads Me On” will not disappoint. If you’re a fan of bands like Alt-J, Bombay Bicycle Club, Boy & Bear, and Family of the Year; Half Moon Run are a serious gap in your collection. So come down to the Rescue Rooms on the 1st of November and let these guys make you question why you’d never listened to them before now. What have you got to lose?
