Blending indierock melodies and pounding dance beats with upbeat hooks and stirring choruses, Mark Sharp & The Bicycle Thieves have created an eclectic brand of indiedancemusic favourably recalling artists such as Friendly Fires, Foals and Klaxons.
Hailing from the thriving scene of Scotland’s West Lothian, the band have been making a name for themselves due to their raucous live performances, leading to burgeoning shows at King Tuts and G2 in Glasgow as well as selling out The Garage (Attic) in less than five hours.
Moonshine is their latest offering with the five-piece yet again producing synth soundscapes, tropical-like beats, buoyant harmonised vocals and swaggering baselines. The track is another example of a band on the rise, illustrating why they’ve already supported Kyle Falconer and performed with Lewis Capaldi at Edinburgh’s Summer Sessions.
Moonshine is out now.
