Edinburgh based Man of Moon have been one of Scotland’s best kept secrets for the last 6 months or so, but with nothing committed to tape that secret has been kept to the swelling numbers who have witnessed the duo’s incredibly immersive live show.
Formed in college, the 19 year-old duo of Michael Reid and Chris Bainbridge have discovered an alchemy almost by accident, flung together for a class recording session but soon realising they were on to something special, they both almost immediately decided to quit college. Wisely choosing instead to spend their time honing a lock-tight intensity that festers at the pit of their psychedelic tinged spatial post-punk. Subsequently Man of Moon have found fans in The Phantom Band, who became such big fans that they took them on tour; ditto The Twilight Sad. Frightened Rabbit’s Andy Monaghan liked them so much, that his production credit lies on their stunning debut 7” which is out on Melodic 17th July 2015.
