What Moon Things

What Moon Things kick off tour at Cape House 06.01

Brooklyn via New Paltz indie rockers What Moon Things will be kicking off their tour at Cape House in Brooklyn on June 1st, alongside pecas, Whiner and Abraham King. On their 2016 full-length, the SWIM Tape, Jake Harms' ethereal falsetto is like a venus fly trap: deceptively alluring, until it clamps you in a menacing grip of disturbing imagery and unsettling notions. Check out recent release 'Wild Pink - Forlim Chop,' streaming below. - Ethan Ames


What Moon Things readies "Someone Who Isn't Me" LP release + plays Sunnyvale on 6/4

In their latest singles, “17” and “Party Down the Street,” Brooklyn-based band, What Moon Things blend elements of synth pop, post punk and shoegaze, while maintaining subtle melancholic undertones.  Their lyrics read like nostalgic poetry, accompanied by raw guitar riffs and the even rawer voices of John Morisi and Jake Harms.  “17” and “Party Down the Street” giveus a taste their upcoming full length, “Someone Who Isn’t Me,” set to be released on July 15th, 2016. From the sound of it, it looks like it's going to be a little bit more pop-oriented than their previous releases.  The band is playing several New York shows before the album drops, the soonest one being June 4th at Sunnyvale. - Madeleine Grossman 

NYC What Moon Things bring their 'Death Sponge' to Cameo Gallery on 6.14

Today marks a year since New Paltz-rooted, New York City-based band What Moon Things released their self-titled debut album, a rapturously dark eight-song thunderstorm of guitar streaks, drum bangs, and atmospheric shrieks. On tracks such as the heavy and plodding, but also gently arpeggiated ‘Staring at the Radio’ (streaming below) or the meditative and penetrating ‘Vampir,’ the group headed by early-twenties multi-instrumentalists Jake Harms and John Morisi recalled Nirvana’s pained '90s punk and Big Troubles’ reflective shoegaze, while sounding out their own nightmare of death sponge - as they label the genre they play. Now, the group prepares for the release of their sophomore record and has a few upcoming shows: you can see them next at Williamsburg’s Cameo Gallery on 6.14. – Zach Weg
