Half Moon Run’s unique sound fuses together the restless elements of indie, pop and roots with beautiful rhythmic harmonies, delicate guitar lines and a hint of warm electronica. With the industry buzzing, global label deals about to be announced and the worldwide release of their album “Dark Eyes” slated for March, 2013 will be the year of Canada’s Half Moon Run.
Across the globe from NME to Brooklyn Vegan, tastemakers and musicians (including Mumford and Sons) are all singing the trio’s praises and Australia is lucky enough to get the year’s first look, in a run of intimate venues around the country.
‘Their minimal but textured rock had real dynamics. It had hooks… It was buzz heaven, the sinews on everyone’s necks bulged as they were juiced with pure buzz’ – Gavin Haynes, NME
“I’m going to be cheeky here and pick one band […] Half Moon Run – potentially one of the most important bands debuting an album this year. It’s progressive without being pretentious.” Ben Lovett, Mumford & Sons
