About the Artist
The Moons - a London-based quintet by way of Northampton in the Midlands - whip up their own incandescent style of 60's psychedelic pop sounds, underpinned with a timeless British tunesmith sensibility. Fronted by singer, songwriter and guitarist Andy Crofts (usually found seated behind the Hammond organ in Paul Weller's band).
, the band -- James Bagshaw (guitar), Ben Gordelier (drums), Thomas Van Heel (keyboards) and Thomas Warmsley (bass guitar) -- interweave garage rock, glistening orchestrations, and infectious rhythms. All five members are multi-instrumentalists, providing a solid backbone of inspiration for their creative method; but moreover, they see upholding the tradition of classic British songwriting as their sacred duty, and draw upon Andy Crofts bountiful wellspring of repertoire for their fine-honed melodies.
