The Londoners are on a whole other planet now.
If you haven’t been swept up by The Big Moon yet, then you really have to question what the hell you’ve been doing for the past year. Delivering banger after banger, we’ve know that their time is coming for a while now. ‘Cupid’, the single dropped earlier this year was a defiant line in the sand. With ‘Silent Movie Susie’, they’re building an empire.
Whilst previous efforts have been packed full of menacing no-nonsense undertones, ‘Silent Movie Susie’ is the ultimate summertime breeze. From the wistful harmonies that burst into life as the chorus takes hold, to the chopping lines that gallop along in unison to Juliette Jackson’s pleas for that pesky Susie to return; it’s blissful euphoria wrapped in a crisp 3 minute nugget, and their most direct pop anthem so far.
‘Silent Movie Susie’ is that moment where hands go in the air during a festival set. It’s the moment where your favourite song comes on the radio without even requesting it. It’s the moment where your worries for a brief second are long gone and all that’s left is the music.
And more than that, it’s the moment where The Big Moon stepped up to the big leagues and became your new favourite band. Jamie Muir
