    The Moons

    Pocket Melodies

      Through these strange and uncertain times it is sometimes a little hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel but this is where The Moons have stepped in. This long player is an album full of colour and raw songwriting recorded live in the legendary Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. With cinematic string arrangements and masterclass songwriting from the pen of singer/songwriter Andy Crofts this album will be your happy escape.

      “Most of this album had been unintentionally sat in my pocket for quite some time. Songs that I had written and forgotten about or had just lost their way and left unfinished. So that is why I wanted the album to simply be named Pocket Melodies. I had this inner feeling to pull them all together and it turned out my favourite Moons record.” Andy Crofts

      Pocket Melodies takes you on a journey of glorious melodies leading you through love, romance, nostalgia, regret and unity.

      “I wanted to be true to myself with this record. My best strength is writing melodic pop songs so I just let it all flow as I wanted this album to be soaked in colour and completely natural. There’s no pretence, it’s just straight up pop songs. I have always worn my heart on my sleeve when it comes to my feelings and I think you can hear this in the lyrics this time.” Andy Crofts

      The album features singles Riding Man and Today which received high praise and championed on BBC London and Radio X and a collaboration with Paul Weller on the song Tunnel Of Time.

      "I wrote all of the songs on the album except Tunnel Of Time which is a collaboration between myself and Paul Weller. He once approached me with a little idea and we slowly worked at it in dressing rooms etc until I took it away and put it all together. Its a nice little song and im glad it found a home with The Moons." Andy Crofts

        The Moons At Your Door consists of 2 long tracks, “The Moons At Your Door” and “There Is A GraveYard That Dwells In Man” and reveals, yet again, an unexpected sidereal shift in C93’s vision and voice.

The record is pressed on opaque white vinyl. The artwork on the back of the LP sleeve differs to the artwork on the back of the CD sleeve.

        The Moons

        Body Snatchers

          Taken from their new album 'Mindwaves', 'Body Snatchers' is big, brash and tuneful with thunderous drums and a kaleidoscopic driving beat at its core. An escapade into classic science fiction B-movie territory, the seductive track combines haunting and flamboyant electronics which compliments the rhythm section.

          Bringing plenty of vigour, the exuberant and infectious pop/rock n roll tune flaunts their versatile and rousing nature for writing vibrant songs. Limited stock! B-side Everybody's Happy Nowadays (Buzzcocks cover)
