Supermoons be damned, this is one lunar cycle that’s going interstellar.



Banger



Mostly, when bands talk about bringing something to their recorded output, they’re on about capturing the ferocity of their live performances. The claustrophobic sweat of the toilet circuit stage, the immediacy of the moment. The Big Moon don’t have to worry about that. They’ve captured something even more magical.

The best bands, see, are a gang. It’s them against the world. They’ve got their own personalities, their own sense of humour. Open up the door and they’ll drag you into their world. It’s that which runs through the core of ‘Formidable’.

Even when not going for the sugar spun funhouse of ‘Silent Movie Susie’ or ‘Cupid’, there’s still that nudge, wink and held hand into their magical kingdom. Switching between swooning verse and firmly planted chorus, there’s a steely defiance to 'Formidable', The Big Moon’s latest offering. Like the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle, it’s the sound of something clicking. What was potential before is realised now. Supermoons be damned, this is one lunar cycle that’s going interstellar.
