Preview: The Big Moon at Crash Records and 02 Academy

Having released their second album, Walking Like We Do, on 10 January, The Big Moon is on a run of in-store appearances, ending at Leeds’ Crash Records on 16 January.  

They’re back on the road again from 20 January, supporting Bombay Bicycle Club – appearing at the 02 Academy in Leeds on 25 January.  Their well-deserved headline tour begins on 27 February until 23 May – and they support Kaiser Chiefs on 4 and 5 July at Halifax’s Piece Hall.

‘Walking Like We Do – Inventive indie-pop that points to a bright future for the band…….  Zippy guitars and knotted harmonies meet electronic whirrs and propulsive, disco-lite beats as the London four-piece enter a new, exciting phase.’  NME   

‘Walking Like We Do……  Endlessly quotable Indie pop.’    The Guardian
