2017 Ones To Watch #18 – The Big Moon

The Big Moon

With 2016 over, we look ahead to what musical talent 2017 can offer, and with the masses of acts out there in the industry there is plenty for us to get excited about. Throughout January, ICM will be highlighting one new band each day and showing just why they should be on your music radar. Our 18th band is The Big Moon.

The Big Moon have been on our radar for the majority of 2016 by releasing incredible tracks throughout.

‘Silent Movie Susie’ was a knowing, modern-day blast of leftfield pop, all merciless of frantic hooks and four-part harmonies that back Juliette Jackson’s brazen croon. Already a highlight of the band’s vehement live show, ’Silent Movie Susie’, for all its charm and melody, could moonlight as a stunner that Justine Frischmann agonisingly mislaid during the recording of her band’s debut record.

The band also released ‘Formidable’ in 2016.

‘Formidable’ was somehow contained into three minutes, it got a debut spin from Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 show too.

‘Love In The 4th Dimension’ is The Big Moon’s debut album which is out on the 7th April 2017, which seems like far away but I’m sure that the indie quartet will release at least one more single before the album. Releasing through Fiction Records the album was recorded in London throughout the Summer, and co-produced by Catherine Marks and Juliette Jackson.

Speaking of the album, Juliette Jackson said: “We’ve been playing these songs for two years now, and it’s a dream come true to finally immortalise them on record. It’s like having eleven tiny babies all at once, all with their own little faces and voices and personalities, and now we’re ready to throw them out of our nest and into your ears.”

We will be announcing a new band every day throughout the entirety of January and the ICM long list will be announced on February 1st.
