Very limited 7” on the lack of the last sold out single.
The Moons return with their second single TODAY from the forthcoming new album Pocket Melodies.
Keeping with a summer feel Today is an upbeat feel good track written by singer Andy Crofts adding more light and sunshine on these surreal times.
The perfect follow up to the first Riding Man. "The song is about finally finding some happiness and not letting it go. Years of dreaming, years of hard graft all come to one point and you want to share it with your love". Andy Crofts.
LP is initially on limited 180g purple vinyl with gatefold sleeve and 16 page lyric book. CD is a deluxe bookback style sleeve with lyric booklet and 5 bonus tracks.
Through these strange and uncertain times it is sometimes a little hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel but this is where The Moons have stepped in. This long player is an album full of colour and raw songwriting recorded live in the legendary Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. With cinematic string arrangements and masterclass songwriting from the pen of singer/songwriter Andy Crofts this album will be your happy escape.
“Most of this album had been unintentionally sat in my pocket for quite some time. Songs that I had written and forgotten about or had just lost their way and left unfinished. So that is why I wanted the album to simply be named Pocket Melodies. I had this inner feeling to pull them all together and it turned out my favourite Moons record.” Andy Crofts
Pocket Melodies takes you on a journey of glorious melodies leading you through love, romance, nostalgia, regret and unity.
“I wanted to be true to myself with this record. My best strength is writing melodic pop songs so I just let it all flow as I wanted this album to be soaked in colour and completely natural. There’s no pretence, it’s just straight up pop songs. I have always worn my heart on my sleeve when it comes to my feelings and I think you can hear this in the lyrics this time.” Andy Crofts
The album features singles Riding Man and Today which received high praise and championed on BBC London and Radio X and a collaboration with Paul Weller on the song Tunnel Of Time.
"I wrote all of the songs on the album except Tunnel Of Time which is a collaboration between myself and Paul Weller. He once approached me with a little idea and we slowly worked at it in dressing rooms etc until I took it away and put it all together. Its a nice little song and im glad it found a home with The Moons." Andy Crofts

“One Alone,” the debut solo LP from Alice In Chains lead singer/guitarist, William DuVall, is a smoldering all-acoustic affair, a late-night meditation on heartbreak, triumph, and hard-won lessons. This recording is as intimate as it gets, like a private living room concert. It’s the perfect contrast to Alice In Chains’s recent UK arena tour in May of this year.
“After three albums and numerous world tours with Alice In Chains, as well as creating the Giraffe Tongue Orchestra album (w/ Brent Hinds of Mastodon and Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan), and, of course, my catalog of albums and tours with Comes With The Fall, I felt the need to peel everything back to the bare bones. This album is strictly one voice, one guitar. It reveals the very core of who I am as a singer, guitarist, and songwriter.” - William DuVall

Musically Embr's debut ‘1823’ could be categorized as ‘Doom’. However, it’s obvious that EMBR have range, drive and a desire to add to the genre, to broaden it whilst staying true to its core fundamentals.
Rest assured, the band have all the nuts and bolts in place. Mark Buchanan (guitar), Alan Light (bass) and Eric Bigelow (drums) keep everything tight and weighty. Massive drop-tuned guitars, chest rattling low end, pounding drums, fuzzy distortion, it’s all there. But they also add in synths, a bit of grunge and alt rock flavors.
The vocal talents of Crystal absolutely soar and strengthen the music. Her range, patterns and harmonies transport the band’s music skyward. Crystal adds soul and an air of melancholia to the musical creations. If a pointer were needed, think Mastodon meets Witch Mountain with epic sweeps and a shade of gothic drama.
The songs on 1823 are loud, brutally beautiful, aggressive, abrasive and at times atmospheric, uplifting and emotional.
