The Big Moon - Formidable

1.    Who are these fine ladies? 

The Big Moon are an indie rock buzz band from London, England. They have been together since 2014 and Formidable (Nov'16) is a new single from their debut album Love In The 4th Dimension (April'17). 

2. What's this Formidable like then? 

Formidable is an epic, slow build, from the desolate, slow, melody with voice and guitar until the invincible all in well past the minute mark. Then it keeps building, going out with a blistering lead break and a scream-it-to-the-sky version of the chorus. A stone-cold fucking belter. No doubt.

3. Who are The Big Moon similar to? 

The Doors, The Runaways and Elastica. 

4. What plaudits have the press ladelled on Formidable

“Rousing, fist-clenching stuff” – DIY. 

“A powerful punch of grunge-pop” – London The Inside.

“Vulnerable and imperious, verging on epic” – Bitter Sweet Symphonies. 

5. Which bands have inspired The Big Moon?

Some of The Big Moon’s main influences are Spring King, Palma Violets, The Pixies, Weezer and The White Stripes. 

6. Why should I give Formidable a lash? 

The epic weave of musical textures and the tight lead breaks. 

7. Do The Big Moon have any more cracking tunes? 

The Road is sound and Cupid is a bit of a belter too.

8. Any more words pet? 

The Big Moon's debut album Love In The 4th Dimension was produced by Catherine Marks who has done the hard yards for Beware Of Darkness, The Amazons and INHEAVEN.

“Did she make you swallow all your pride?”

The Wildhearts are a hard rock band from Newcastle, England. They started in 1989 and, despite going through a multitude of line-ups and hiatuses, are still going strong.  The band are influenced by bands like The Clash, KISS, The Ramones, Nirvana and Twisted Sister. Despite having a top twenty single with I Wanna Go Where The People Go (1995) and a top twenty album with P.H.U.Q (1995) commercial success, particularly in America, alluded them. I Wanna Go Where The People Go is The Wildheats' iconic song and a genuine rock anthem. 

“I wanna be where the cunts like me are buried six feet under the ground”
