Rock-pop newcomers The Big Moon impress with debut single "Sucker"

01 May 2015, 08:13 | Written by Laurence Day

London-dwelling quartet The Big Moon introduce themselves to the world with "Sucker", a sweetly brash paean to unrequited love.

Living in the same area as Alvvays, Juliette, Soph, Celia, and Fern create a fuzzy kind of lovelorn pop that borrows from hulking '90s rock legends. Think riffs you need a permit to handle, percussion thrashing like a cat in a bath, but vocals like baklava - rich and honeyed.

The track was produced by the band, and will be released by new label Hard Up on 15 June. It will be released digitally and on an etched 12" (strictly limited to 300 copies).

As well as this, they're set to unleash a tour cassette (with Yak; 100 copies only) titled Milked. It will feature three new songs: "Eureka Moment", "Nothing Without You", and "This Is The News".
