Just Listen: The Big Moon – Silent Movie Susie

The Big Moon

Words: Georgia Mae Blackman

TheBigMoonThe Big Moon have a different sound to most of the bands and artists I have listened to recently, and I can easily say they are the most interesting, too. The first vocals of the track Silent Movie Susie, are gritty and low and then suddenly a ferocious and noisy slap of a strong and fast drum beat kicks in and it shows their true colours. It shows their roots and their passion for the indie-rock scene.  Silent Movie Susie on the surface gives off happy vibes but I feel as if it is a cover up to a stronger and deeper message in the  stronger, boisterous sounds that dip in and out of this track.
