The Big Moon are returning with their second album ‘Walking Like We Do’, set for release 10th January via Fiction Records. This follows their Mercury Music Prize nominated debut ‘Love In The 4th Dimension’.
The band have so far come out swinging with their two singles ‘It’s Easy Then’ & the recently released ‘Your Light’. Both tracks are a beautiful bundle of dreamy, power pop indie that is insatiable. In addition to this the band have also released visuals for ‘Your Light’, a wholesome music video that see’s the band traverse through the countryside.
Speaking on the latest single vocalist and songwriter Juliette Jackson explains:
“I was thinking about how hard it is to tell if things are worse now or if they have always been this way and I just grew up and started paying attention. To me, it feels like we are at this tipping point that is unprecedented, but then it occurred to me that every generation before us probably had a moment when they thought they were going to be the last generation on earth.” She continues “This song is about freeing yourself from all of it, just for a moment. It’s a thanks to the one person or thing in your life that knows how to come in and open your curtains and light up the darkness and restore your strength so that when you clatter back down into the real world you have the strength to fight your battles, whatever they are.“
