Indie-rockers The Big Moon have revealed the surreal video for their latest single and announced the rescheduling of their autumn tour until 2021.
The four-piece from London are developing a growing fanbase, thanks to prestigious support tours with the likes of Pixies (read our review here) and Bombay Bicycle Club.
Their 2017 debut album Love In The 4th Dimension was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, and this year’s follow-up Walking Like We Do (reviewed here) made No 19 in the UK charts.
The band, led by Juliette Jackson, said of the new promo film for Why: “We managed to make a video in lockdown even though we haven’t been together for four months! Hope our fantasy seaside trip takes you somewhere else for a few mins and gives you that break so you can keep doing what you need to do.
“We certainly enjoyed covering ourselves with green paint. We miss and love you very much. Big thanks to the wizardry of Jonjo Lowe and his team.”
The band have released a series of podcast episodes discussing the origins and creation of each album track – listen to Track x Track here. Singer Jules and bassist Celia have also been offering one-on-one music lessons to fans through lockdown via Zoom, with proceeds going to Girls Rock London. For more info on GRL, click here.
